THORThe last few days have been nothing short of a bonanza of Marvel news.

Straight off the bat is the news that director and actor Kenneth Branagh is in line to possibly direct Thor. Director of movies such as Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing, the Shakespearian director has also played memorable roles like Gilderoy Lockhart in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Given his penchant for the work of Shakespeare, including a lot of work on stage, Branagh may just possibly be the best possible director to bring a character like Thor to the big screen.

A little less interesting is the news that Paramount Pictures has signed a deal with Marvel Entertainment to distribute Marvel’s five upcoming movies.

These include Iron Man 2, set for May 7, 2010; Thor, July 16, 2010; The First Avenger: Captain America, May 6, 2011; The Avengers, July 15, 2011; and Iron Man 3, with no date as yet announced.

Finally, the talented writers behind the hugely successful Iron ManMark Fergus and Hawk Ostby — apparently aren’t involved in writing its sequel. However, much to our delight, they are involved in … something.

Speaking to MTV, Fergus noted that “there are some really juicy [movies] that we are very much talking intensely with Marvel about. We’re like, ‘We’re the right guys for this one.’”

“We’re interested in working on a bunch of these other Marvel projections and everything in the Marvel canon is fair game. We have a lot of ideas about all this, but until they officially ask us to come do one of these we’ll keep our mouths closed about the actual ideas. It’s moving along nicely but nothing official yet. But, yes, we are planning on working on some of those movies. That much I’ll say.”

So there you have it. No idea what is actually happening of course, but it’s definitely all very exciting!
