‘Thor’, Marvel Studios, and Kenneth Branagh

The summer movie season begins in earnest with Thor, a rock ’em, sock ’em action flick and comic-book adaptation brought to you by…director Kenneth Branagh, best known for his acting, and for his Shakespeare adaptations. Given that Rick, Simon and Justine are puzzled by this pairing, they decide to also take on his 1994 flop Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to see how he’s handled genre fare in the past. Also in this episode: a brief debate on Marvel Studios’ super-franchise being unveiled over the next couple of years.
