Did you know they were making a Thor movie?
Did you know Kenneth Branagh was directing it?
I cannot wrap my brain around this. I guess it’s sort of like Ang Lee and the Incredible Hulk, right? Why do these directors want to use these characters? Have they never read comic books? I think they’ve never read comic books.
If I had to rank-order Marvel superheroes in order of both personal and cultural relevance—and who doesn’t, from time to time—I wouldn’t just put Thor at the bottom of the list. I would put Thor on, like, a separate sheet of paper. I mean, come on. Sub-Mariner has more emotional resonance than Thor. Ant-Man has more emotional resonance than Thor.
Am I wrong? Does anybody out there truly love Thor? I’m convinced he has no actual fans.
