Kenneth Branagh Not Directing THOR: RAGNAROK

Movie News

Last week brought word that Kenneth Branagh was reportedly being lined up to helm Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok. Sadly that story has now been shot down by Marvel’s Kevin Feige.

Branagh directed Thor for Marvel, which perfectly brought the classic Thor world and the Son of Odin’s characteristics in to the modern setting of the MCU. Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World disappointed many, and so the potential return of Branagh was one that was welcomed by fans. But now Feige has ruled that out.

Speaking to Collider, the overseer of all at Marvel Studios simply said, “Not true. I don’t know where that came from.”

On when we can expect to find out who will be directing the third Thor movie, Feige revealed, “Probably towards the end of the summer we would announce a filmmaker and a writer. May be the same person, I don’t know, may be two different people.”

Given how Ragnarok promises big things for the God of Thunder, and maybe all not ending well for Thor, it’ll be interested to see who Marvel Studios ends up giving the directing gig too. As ever though, expect more on this as it develops.

Thor: Ragnarok is currently set for a November 3rd, 2017 release.
