Or so says Joe Quesada to MTV when speaking about the Kenneth Branagh film adaptation of the Norse god story.

“It’s going to be pretty epic, and regardless of what you think it’s going to be, it’s going to surprise people,” he added. “It’s an interesting piece for a superhero movie. It’s going to change the conventions of the superhero movie.”

Joe Q. goes on to say that he’s sat through meetings with Branagh and says that the director has immersed himself into the subject matter.  When one looks at the library of Branagh films, and understands his love for classic storytelling, I expect Thor will be something akin to Henry V.  And if that is the case, then don’t be surprised if Thor becomes one of the greatest superhero movies of all time.
