Thor

Briefly: Some troublesome news from the Marvel world, perhaps? Deadline reports that Patty Jenkins (director of Monster with Charlize Theron), the first female director lined up at Marvel Studios to take on Thor 2, has left the project over "creative differences." They mention she may eventually "end up working on one of these superhero films, but perhaps not on a sequel." Interesting. Instead, Marvel is "canvassing" the agencies for a new director, which means back to the drawing board. Yep, they're already trying to get this into production even though we haven't even seen The Avengers yet, but it has a late November 2013 release. Chris Hemsworth will be back as Thor. We'll let you know who they line up to replace Jenkins.

"Creative Differences"?  I'd so love to hear the story behind that.

Meh, Thor was pleasant, but It wasn't like I needed to see if he will ever find true love again. Make it of Midgard and maybe ill watch it.

Damn, based on her work on Monster and The Killing, it would've been cool to see what she'd do. I'd still like for Branagh to want to return.

Marvel how about hiring Kenneth Branagh as director?

From what I hear he doesn't want to direct the sequel sadly.

There are many allies and villains that weren't included in the first film which they can utilise in future sequels and give us new stories while leaving out the overused Loki.
