Caruso Talks Helming Thor

Since Matthew Vaughn left the project a while back, many have wondered who would take over Marvel Studios adaptation of their “Thor” comic. Now, director D.J. Caruso (“Disturbia,” “Eagle Eye”) tells IESB.Net that he would be up for the gig.

“I would definitely tackle it and I sort of wrestled with it before and I was always a fan of Thor growing up as a kid. I know that they [Marvel] have a script, but there’s something, there’s a fear I have about Thor and depending on what Thor story you want to tell, whether you want to bring Thor into the modern world or if you want to go back to Asgard and get the history of what’s happening between him and his brother and dad. That’s one I’ve always been interested in and it also would be, it would be a monumental task so, I could definitely see myself getting myself into that” says Caruso.

Has there been any offers on Marvel’s part for the gig? “I have had some talks with Marvel about it but I have not seen a screenplay. It could be something that I am interested in.”
