This is disappointing news – Patty Jenkins has dropped out of directing Thor 2 due to that old trope ‘creative differences’. Apparently neither side were could agree on the direction of the franchise.It’s not all bad, though, as there is hope within Marvel Studios that Jenkins will move to one of Marvel’s other franchises.
This leaves Marvel rushing to find someone to fill the director’s chair, and with the release date locked in for November 2013, that won’t give the new person much time with the script, the cast, or to prep for filming. Here’s hoping the quality of the film doesn’t suffer as a result.
