With Thor director Kenneth Branagh off doing an adaptation of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for Fox 2000, Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures are sizing up Irish auteur Brian Kirk to take over directorial duties on Thor 2.

Brian Kirk is best known for directing episodes of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones. It was with this series that he proved he could manage a large ensemble in a fantasy epic while grounding the grandiose nature of the genre in reality. It was his work on the show that grabbed the attention of those in charge at Marvel Studios.

Thor 2 is expected to double its cast of larger than life Aasgardians and mythical Norse creatures, making it one of the largest scale Marvel adventures to date, second only to The Avengers.

Thor: The Dark World was released November 8th, 2013 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Eccleston, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Ray Stevenson. The film is directed by Alan Taylor.

    @cupid agreed. GOT is so damned good. I just hope they don't overdo the cast though. Perhaps save some for #3.
