Branagh in talks to direct 'Thor' - Variety

Branagh in talks to direct 'Thor' - Entertainment News, Film News, Media - Variety: "Kenneth Branagh is negotiating to direct 'Thor,' the next Marvel Comics property that will be turned into a live-action film by Marvel Studios. Pic will be released in 2010.
Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige's choice of Branagh is surprising, as Branagh hasn't really directed an action-heavy film since his debut on 'Henry V,' a bloody telling of the British king's conquest of France.

Branagh is the latest in a string of directors -- such as Jon Favreau ('Iron Man'), Christopher Nolan (the Batman franchise) and Gavin Hood ('X-Men Origins: Wolverine') -- with arthouse roots taking on big-budget comicbook fare."
