    Default CBR: Marvel Studios Readies "Thor 2" Without Branagh

    The Norse god played by Chris Hemsworth will return to the screen after "Avengers" for another solo outing in Marvel Studios "Thor 2" sometime in 2013 as director Kenneth Branagh steps aside to let another helmer call the shots.

    Uh oh. I'm expecting the Shakespearean dialect thing to be severely lacking now.

    Thumbs up

    I think Branagh did a great job, but I'm okay with seeing someone else take over for the sequel.

    The movie was lite on Shakespearean dialect.

    A new director might be good. I hope they put some time into the script as well.

    They are cheap. Nearly all the Marvel directors so far have came off working box office disappointment.

    Relax, people. It's not like he needs to be part of a franchise, and it was already mentioned that he's involved with the movie even if he's not a director. It's hardly the same situation as with Norton or Terrence Howard.

    If the same writers stick around, that's more important.

    I'm hoping they go too.

    Thor was a fun movie despite the script.

    Uh, wouldn't there have to be a first time that Marvel Studios made a "dick move" for there to be another?

    However Deadline says director Kenneth Branagh will remain involved in the franchise in some capacity.
    Kind of like Bryan Singer did with X-Men First Class, when he helped produce it but giving the director helm to Matthew Vaughn.

    That's good.

    It's P.R. He's not going to be involved in the Thor sequel anymore than Favreau is going to "produce" Iron Man 3. Marvel Studios has a reputation for being relatively cheap with talent, and believes (rightly so) that it is the characters that are the draw, not the director/actor/etc.
