As long as he's not the only writer I'm fine with it. I'm actually hoping that they bring in some strong people this time. While I enjoyed Thor, the script/story had a bunch of superfluous crap in it. There were way too many side-characters that didn't do much of anything outside of fan service, and it only detracted from the better parts of the story. Not that it was terrible or anything, but it could have been tighter.

I wouldn't be opposed to the exact same writing team coming back, but I hope they can tighten it up.

There's plenty of good writers as far as I'm concerned. They'll do just fine.
