Branagh was in the director's chair when Thor hit the big screen for the first time back in 2011 starring Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston.

Branagh delivered a great mix of terrific special effects with a movie that was driven by characters and the story. And while Branagh did not return for Thor: The Dark World - Alan Taylor taking over the helm - he says he would never say never about returning.

Speaking to Den of Geek, the director said: "I have seen more of the movies, and as I've said before, I had a good time there," he explained. "It was a really sort of pivotal moment to me doing Thor, and I like them. I like [producer] Kevin [Feige] very much. You know, you never say never."

"I think I couldn't begin to speak for the complications of their interweaving of this ever-expanding universe, which is totally fascinating to behold. But I think they're masters of their own destiny.

"They know what they want, and we all got on terribly well. So I'm sure if they felt there was a spot for me somewhere in there they'd give me a shout."

Branagh is currently enjoying huge critical and box office success with his latest directing venture Cinderella.

Cinderella sees Branagh team up with Disney for a live action version of the iconic and popular tale. The movie has already topped the box office in the U.S. and has currently grossed in excess of $335 million worldwide.

Cinderella is the first directorial outing for Branagh since Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and looks set to be one of his biggest box office successes.

As for the Thor franchise, a third solo film - Thor: Ragnarok - is set to hit the big screen in 2017. However, a director is yet to be announced for the film.
