Looks like they're interested in hiring one of the staff helmers from Game Of Thrones. Which, if you ask me...is awesome.

Very cool choice. I've not seen GoT but I've seen so much positive about the series that the idea Marvel is approaching him sounds great.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

Very interesting development. I wonder who the other contenders might be for the job? I'm disappointed like everyone else that Brannagh isn't returning but if they can get someone who has as much passion for the project as he did, that's fine by me.

Among "other possibilities," they say Drew Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods"), James McTeigue ("Ninja Assassin"), Noam Murro ("300: Battle of Artemesia") and Breck Eisner ("The Crazies").

None of whom excite me like Brian Kirk does. It may be based partly on Marvel cheaping out, but they're giving a new guy a chance based on the skills that he's exhibited that suit the thematic premise of Thor. I think that's awesome.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

Out of those mentioned I'd be excited for either Drew Goddard or James McTeague. Not surprised if this is another case of Marvel Studios "cheapening" out on talent. They'd better be careful if this is the case or if this continues because it's gonna end up eventually biting them in the arse.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

Talent doesn't have to be established or expensive, though. Talent can be up and coming, and therefore inexpensive. All the directing on Game Of Thrones has been top notch, and exhibited the technical and thematic skills required for a Thor story. So I think it's exciting. Even Fincher was just a commercial guy at one point.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

It doesn't have to be established or expensive, but with the money at stake in these projects there's an obvious tendency to hire on the same basis that people in most any industry do: experience and track record on other projects.

Oh, I'm sorry, we're talking about writers - pretty much the bottom of the totem pole; the craft services guy in charge of handi-wipes is considered more crucial during production.

I don't know which individual episodes of GOT Brian Kirk directed, but the idea of any of the directors of it doing Thor 2 is a good one. Particularly if Thor 2 is to go in a more fantastic direction, with more emphasis on Asgard.

Rather him than the list of journeyman hacks also listed there.

I haven't seen GoT yet so I can't judge Kirk's abilities, but I am glad to see then considering someone familiar with the fantasy genre.

If he's coming from Game of Thrones, that bodes well for Thor 2.

Seems that the talk of Kirk directing may be premature, though he is apparently on the list

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

Thor stopped tracking prior to Labor Day weekend. I would have thought that despite being in under 100 theaters they would've left it out for Labor Day weekend.

Thor finished it's domestic run with $181m
Thor finished it's worldwide run with $448.5m

Would've been nice to get to a nice worldwide figure of $450m but now that can be a goal for the sequel to pass. The film had a healthy run of 112 days/16 weeks in release.

For a film that found early haters and trash talk of campy He-Man film Thor got the 2011 summer off to a solid start. Thor only leads it's stable mate Captain America by $10m and may yet be surpassed. However, as of now Thor is the comic book superhero film of the summer.

Picked up the DVD today. The deleted scenes had a lot of good stuff with the Warriors Three. I love them in the comics and didn't think the movie really defined them very well other than just being friends of Thor. The deleted stuff shows them as much more defined and recognizable.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

I saw the film just recently, and really enjoyed it! I don't think it was the perfect superhero movie by any means, and I don't know if it will stand up to repeat viewings, but it was entertaining at the very least. I think the strong characters made up for what was a pretty weak plot.

Well, except for Kat Dennings. She was amusing in spots, but when will film makers learn that characters who exist only for comic relief are annoying! Especially when they spout pop culture references that will immediately date your film!

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

I think the movie would've been better with more scenes of Thor on Earth and actually coming to care for it. That was too rushed.
