My experience with Thor comics growing up was minimal. If it wasn’t Spider-Man or Batman, forget it. So my expectations for a Thor movie were modest, although the pre-release images were great and I trusted director Kenneth Branagh to deliver a fun film with at least some ambition towards Shakespearean gravitas. Fortunately that is exactly the tone Branagh, best known for his films of “Henry V” and “Hamlet,” was going for.
