Chris Hemsworth as Thor

Deadline reports that Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) has been hired by Marvel to direct the sequel to Thor. Kenneth Branagh did a terrific job directed Thor. The movie, starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, was well received by critics and had a big $448 million worldwide box office gross. We were hoping Kenneth Branagh would return, but the Game of Thrones director should be able to deliver an awesome sequel.
