The search may be over for the man to lead Walt Disney and Marvel's Thor sequel into theaters. Just a year after director Brian Kirk led three episodes of "Game of Thrones," Variety reports the two studios have entered discussions with Kirk to likely lead their next installment of the avenger. The director also has credits which include Dexter," "Luther" and "Boardwalk Empire." Don Payne is currently scripting out the story for the studios.
If Kirk gets pegged for the job, he would be bouncing his Thor story into theaters alongside another comic avenger. Much like this summer's line-up which had Thor strike theaters before Captain America, the sequel would be striking theaters after Iron Man 3 in the summer of 2013.
Iron Man 3 hits theaters May 3, 2013.
Thor 2 arrives in theaters July 26, 2013.
