We're still bummed that Kenneth Branagh won't be directing the sequel, but it looks like they may have found a worthy replacement!
Last month, we heard that Disney and Marvel Studios were moving forward with Thor 2, which is already scheduled for release on July 26, 2013.
Now, we've learned that Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk is in "early talks" to direct the Thor sequel.
Others being considered for Thor 2 if things don't work out with Kirk include Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard, Ninja Assassin's James McTeigue, 300: Battle of Artemesia's Noam Murro, and The Crazies' Breck Eisner.
Who would U like to see behind the camera for Thor 2? Is the Game of Thrones director right for the job?
