Chris Hemsworth on Patty Jenkins and Thor 2

“She has a great take on the story and a solid grasp on that kind of universe,” says Hemsworth, "…Branagh read every comic book he could get his hands on. She also looked like she had done her homework.”

With a July 26, 2013 release targeted, Thor 2 should have a director confirmed shortly. Hemsworth, meanwhile, is shooting Snow White and the Huntsman opposite Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart. Perhaps more than coincidentally, Theron won an Oscar under Jenkins for 2003's Monster.

Hemsworth can also be seen on the big screen as Thor in the upcoming The Avengers, hitting theaters on May 4, 2012.
