So I am going to see Thor on Friday and I can’t wait. It’s getting great advance reviews. Â I figured it would. Â Kenneth Branagh is a very talented director and actor and Marvel scoring him to bring Thor to the screen was a MAJOR coup. Â In many ways the saga of the Gods of Asgard is similar to the Shakespearean material Branagh has spent so much of his career on. I mean, at it’s heart it is the story of a headstrong prince being taught humility by his father while being plotted against by his conniving half-brother. They are bringing Thor to Earth for part of this film, which makes sense as they are bringing Thor into the Avengers movie currently in the works. Â This is great because it gives us Natalie Portman, who is great. Â Not to mention Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, the SHIELD agent from the Iron Man movies.
I cannot wait!
