There's no question or doubt in my mind that Kenneth Branagh has to direct a sequel to Thor! The guy did one hell of an incredible job directing the first film. We know that Marvel is going make a new Thor film, so it's just a matter of time. It would be a shame if Branagh didn't come back to direct at least one more. I'm not sure if anyone else could have pulled off what he did with the movie. Just the fact that he wants to come back for more is a good sign. In a recent interview the director was asked if he would come back to direct a Thor sequel and here's what he said,
We went through so many possibilities for how the story might go, that of course the prospect of that is very tantalizing and fascinating.
He goes on to admit he's waiting to see what the fans say first,
You know as well as I do, there’s a passionate fan base out there that will say what they think. People will vote with their feet. And because it’s such a big chunk of change for everybody involved, I think that’s going to have a crucial, crucial impact.
Well, having seen the film, I for one am completely satisfied with what Branagh did with Thor, and in my opinion he needs to come back for some more Thor glory. He goes on to say that,
It would be a lovely challenge and problem to have should we do a second one.... When I first got involved with this, I was so thrilled. The first big, really exciting moment when I started really going through the comic books was all the descriptions of powers. loved it. Amazing. People’s body weights, how tall they were, what they could do. All of that kind of stuff. There’s a vast amount of that from the Thor universe that I’d like to see.
As would I. Thor opens up here in the U.S. this weekend, and I can't tell you enough how much you need to go out and see the movie. I don't see how fanboys and fangirls aren't going to enjoy it.
