So a Shakespearean actor walks into the Marvel Comics offices…

I know I always say I’m going to make it to movies…and then I rarely do. But since I have very fond memories of seeing Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V, three times no less, I’ll have to make it to Thor next year. The first trailer is out and while it looks like your average superhero movie (and thank god “average” now means Iron Man, and not X-Men 3) I’m hoping that Branagh will bring something special to it. No, I’m not expecting Thor to suddenly spout Shakespeare, but if anyone’s going to do a story with some sense of the epic to it, Branagh’s the guy.
