No director yet for Thor 2

Straight from Tom Hiddleston's mouth

 
TF thought the search for a Thor 2 director was done and dusted, with TV veteran Brian Kirk (Games Of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter) in talks to land the job. 
 
But an interview with Avengers star Tom Hiddleston – AKA Loki in Thor – suggests the post hasn't yet been filled and he hasn't spoken to Kirk. 
 
"I haven’t. I also don’t know that that’s actually confirmed," Hiddleston told MTV. "That’s not me being coy. I spoke to Kevin Feige last week on [The Avengers] set and he said, 'Oh no, we haven’t got anyone yet. We’re thinking about people. I think [Kirk's] name is definitely in the hat, but I don’t think anything is solid."
 
Hiddleston said the film would probably start shooting next spring and the storyline will likely pick-up where The Avengers finishes.
 
"In The Avengers he’s really dark and kind of sociopathic, or maybe even psychopathic is the word, in a deluded way," he explained. "Obviously I haven’t let go of the spiritual damage at the heart of him, it still comes from that lost place, but he’s just incredibly nasty. I think that probably in Thor 2... he’ll have to take responsibility for what he’s done."
 
"The great thing about Loki is there is potential in him for greatness and awfulness, for great heroism and great villainy," Hiddleston continued. "There are still, even within The Avengers, there are moments where you see within Loki a glimmer of hope and that possibility of redemption."
 
Could that see Thor and Loki teaming up? 
 
“I for one am championing the redemption. This isn’t definitely going to happen, but I think there would be nothing more awesome than seeing Loki and Thor fight somebody side by side," Hiddleston added. 

Fancy seeing Loki and Thor go toe-to-toe with a common enemy? Pick a big bad and say why it'd be an awesome fight below!

      Why not Ken Branaugh? The guy was intune with the mythology of the comic AND the classic nordic legend. This is what sets him apart from the purveyors of cinematic blandscapes like Mark Steven Johnson or Brett Ruinator..

      Agreed, Branagh did a great job. The movie wasn't without its flaws, but i think he made the best possible film he could have considering the campy mess which could have been had the film been given to someone without his Shakespearian chops. He will probably be on board in some capacity, but i suppose from his pov it is probably a good thing, the pressure to deliver on these films must be huge. He gave the franchise the kick start it needed, now he can sit back on his comfy producers credit without having to worry about messing up a decent start.

      It was much better than Captain America (which I thought was ok, first half good second half awful).. I would've been interested in where he took the characters and story so it's a shame Brannagh isn't returning. If he's not then I'll champion garysimps

      Brian Kirk sounds like a good choice, from the looks of it he's the next big director.
