Kenneth Branagh Talks ‘Thor’

The director opens up about the Marvel Studios adaptation.

MTV sat down with Valkyrie's Kenneth Branagh on Saturday to discuss his role as director in Marvel Studios' upcoming Thor adaptation, set to release July 16, 2010.

So what's the appeal of "Thor," Kenneth? "To work on a story about one of the immortals, Gods, extraordinary beings, inter-dimensional creatures," he enthused.

He continued excitedly, "There's science fiction and science fact and fantasy all woven into one. It's based on Norse legends which Marvel sort of raided in a brilliant way."

"There's been lots of talk [about casting] - I sound like a politician - but we are too early at this stage. We're getting the story and the visual effects together and all of that is very exciting. Someone sensational is going to play the part but it is early days."

    Yeah Kirk. Bit like Pathfinder. They'll probably get some European bodybuilder to play him.

    I thought of Arnold too. Haha Brolin is bulky enough and I like his acting...possible. They'll probably get some unknown dude to do it.
