There Just Might be a Mighty Thor Movie in the Works

Matthew Vaughn, director of Stardust, and the dude that left X-Men 3 hanging months before filming began (though he also cast the beast and juggernaut) has signed on to direct The Mighty Thor.

Wow, I am surprised this one got greenlit already. Thor isnt gonna be cheap if its done right, but if it gets the all out respectful Iron Man treatment, it could be "marvelous."

From wikipedia:

The Marvel version of Thor is noble and very self-assured, sometimes to the point of arrogance. Odin decides his son needs to be taught humility and consequently places Thor (without memories of godhood) into the body and memories of an existing, partially disabled human medical student, Donald Blake.

After becoming a doctor and thoroughly believing himself to be the young surgeon Blake, he later discovers Thor's disguised hammer and learns to change back and forth into the Thunder God. The real Blake's persona remains elsewhere until many years later, after Odin becomes satisfied of Thor's humility and lifts the spell, thereby removing the need for a mortal alter ego. The mortal experience, however, shapes Thor into an honorable and courteous individual, who is loyal to all comrades.
