“Thor” Cast Talks Movie, Music and Marvel (page 4)
Kenneth Branagh – Director
Using traditional elements among a superhero film may seem unorthodox, but Kenneth Branagh‘s approach moves to story along quickly and elegantly. Utilizing thespian technique in front of a green screen is just Branagh’s way.
The product is nothing short of compelling. The world of Asgard is stellar and extensive, and it is home to many of the great fight scenes of the film. When he needed solemnity among the set, Branagh had the cast march along to Crown Imperial by [lastfm link_type="similar_artist_radio"]William Walter[/lastfm], a piece composed and used mainly for royal weddings.
For the occasion of Thor, Branagh recalls Stan Lee‘s “classic” storytelling. He wasted no time comparing Marvel’s narrative to Shakespeare‘s technique, raving both know how to tell a good, simple and profound story. Branagh does the same, and wouldn’t you know it – we’re left with another timeless great work.
