Empire Online has published progress report for "Thor" and "The Avengers" following an interview with President of Production at Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige. Addressing on the two Marvel's upcoming superhero movies, Feige dishes on the potential timeline for "Thor" casting announcements and on Zak Penn's work on "Avengers".

In the first place, the studio executive reveals that Marvel "will probably be having cast announcements in the next month or so on Thor." Still, he further mentions that the casting announcements may not be about the lead role. "We're looking to cast Loki and Odin soon, and the main female role," he says. "And we'll also hopefully have lockdown shortly, gearing towards the beginning of production, which will be early next year. So I think there will be a lot of announcements between now and then."

On the development of the project itself, Feige goes on explaining that director Kenneth Branagh is busy devising the action sequences. "But Branagh's here, we're prepping, and he's put together some spectacular animatics already for our first action scene," he says. "We're digging into the second and third now, and we are just embarking on a rewrite of the draft."

As for "The Avengers", he suggests that "The Incredible Hulk" writer Zak Penn is figuring out how to tie together "Iron Man", "Thor" and "The First Avenger: Captain America". "Zak Penn is already on board The Avengers [as writer] and he's spending a lot of his time looking into what we're doing with Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, seeing how we're tying it all together," he states. "And he's beginning to outline the script now - he'll be doing that over the summer."

"Thor" tells the story of disabled medical student Donald Blake, whose alter ego is a hammer-wielding Norse god Thor, while "The Avengers" will bring together the super hero team of Marvel Comics characters, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk and others, to battle the biggest foe they've ever faced. "Thor" is set for May 20, 2011 U.S. release and "Avengers" will come out in the U.S. on May 4, 2012.
