Sci-Fi Wire reports that Kenneth Branagh
is currently in talks to direct the film adaptation of
Marvel Comics’ Thor. Branagh has directed a
couple genre films, the most notable being the box-
office flop Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.

Branagh is best known for his adapations of the
works of William Shakespeare, most notably
Hamlet, and Henry V, and he has acted in
a few genre films (the most well known ones being
Wild Wild West and Harry Potter and the
Chamber of Secrets
)

Correction: Kenneth Branagh did not direct
Othello, he did star in it as Iago. My mistake.
