Actor/director Kenneth Branagh is set to direct Marvel’s movie Thor, which should excite any fans of the superhero. Mr. Branagh is most notable for his adaptions of Shakespeare plays; something that fits perfectly with the Thor franchise.

Playing the part of Thor will be Chris Hemsworth, who portrayed George Kirk in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek.

The question on my mind now is if this will be the Ultimate’s version of Thor. I’d imagine that version would make a seamless transition onto film.
