The President of Production of Marvel Studios claims Thanos will not appear in the second God of Thunder film, but reveals that 'there will be a major new villain.'

Kevin Feige has revealed clues on what to expect in "Thor 2". The President of Production of Marvel Studios promised that the God of Thunder will face off a major new villain in the sequel, but claimed that the bad guy would not be Thanos.

Speaking to Empire magazine, Feige debunked rumors that Thanos could appear in the sequel to "" to seek revenge after Loki failed him in "". He stated, "No, future, future. But there will be a major new villain. A major, major new antagonist..."

Though Feige didn't unveil who is the new bad guy in "Thor 2", it has been speculated that will be the one to tackle the villainous part. His casting news has been broken a few days ago, but it is still unclear which antagonist role he will play.

The new major villain aside, Feige discussed what else to expect from the follow-up movie. "We're going to see the other side of Asgard," he gushed. "It's not all polished and golden in this film. And the events of Avengers will have affected Thor for sure. His relationship with Loki will continue to evolve, and the biggest part is Natalie and Thor returning with Jane Foster."

"Thor 2" will bring back and as the titular hero and his evil brother Loki respectively. Also returning to the cast ensemble are as Heimdall, as Jane Foster, and as Odin.

Walt Disney Pictures has scheduled to release the film in the U.S. theaters on November 15, 2013.
