Chris Hemsworth is desperate to start work on 'Thor: Ragnarok'.

The Australian actor has reprised his role as the hammer-wielding in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' but has been "hounding" Marvel President Kevin Feige about his third stand-alone movie.

Kevin said: "'Thor 3' is being scripted right now and I think we get a draft soon. Particularly [Chris] Hemsworth is hounding me during this junket so I'm going to push the writers [Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost] to hurry."

Up next in early development for Marvel is 'Black Panther', which will reportedly star Andy Serkis and Chadwick Boseman.

Speaking of the 2018 movie, Kevin told /FILM: "'Black Panther' same thing. I have some director meetings set in the next few weeks once ['Avengers: Age of Ultron'] gets out the door. And casting is already underway in many ways. Some of which you know about, some of which you don't."

'Thor: Ragnarok' had originally been scheduled for release in July 2017, but has been pushed back to November of that year because of the studio's collaboration with Sony on a new 'Spider-Man' movie, which was announced after Marvel unveiled their phase 3 slate.

In addition, 'Black Panther' will now be released on July 6, 2018, the 'Captain Marvel' movie has been rescheduled for November 2, 2018, with 'Inhumans' being pushed to July 12, 2019.

Thor (Hemsworth) reunites with his duplicitous brother Loki (Hiddleston) to battle Hela, Goddess of Death (Blanchett). Director Taika Waititi averts narrative pomposity in favour of charm, comedy and gargantuan spectacle, while Hemsworth sends himself up with skill and confidence. An askew, irreverent and wonderfully…
