Back in September it was announced that Monster director Patty Jenkins would helm Marvel’s Thor 2. Today it was reported that the director is leaving the project over creative differences.
It’s being reported that Marvel Studios are talking with agencies as they begin the process of finding a new director. According to Deadline, “she’ll probably end up working on one of these superhero films, but perhaps not on a sequel.”
Marvel Studios will have to move fast in order to make their November 15, 2013 release.
News of Patty Jenkins’ exit from Thor 2 found many people turning to Twitter to vent their feelings on the news:
Patty Jenkins left Thor 2… Is Uwe Boll available?
Shit. I was looking forward to see how Patty Jenkins did Thor 2.
I hope Kenneth Branagh comes back to make Thor 2. Probably they could call it the Mighty Thor….
Director Patty Jenkins is the second helmer to leave Thor 2. Maybe give Branagh a call back now?
Patty Jenkins leaving “Thor 2”? I know a director looking for some work. Drew Goddard. Come on, Marvel, make this guy a contender.
