Patty Jenkins OUT As 'Thor 2' Director

Patty Jenkins banished from Asgard! According to Deadline Director Patty Jenkins (AMC's The Killing) is departing from Thor 2 because of "creative differences." Patty was the second choice to Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk. Marvel is said to be moving very quickly on Patty's replacement in order to keep the release date, July 26, 2013.

Deadline added that this may not be the last of Patty Jenkins in the superhero genre. I'm not sure if they are speculating or if there source gave them a scoop but they said, "The feeling is that she’ll probably end up working on one of these superhero films, but perhaps not on a sequel."

Wowzers, a director leaving just before they should be getting serious about pre-production. Man, that phenomenon has *NEVER* gone wrong before! I'm so stoked for Thor 2 now!

Get someone better qualified this time.

Won't happen though. No good director will come cheap.

There's that but something else is time constraints, surely. Anybody they hire is really going to have to hit the ground running. Not saying it's impossible but given Marvel's penny-pinching and the time crunch here... well, who needs THAT pressure?

Actually, 'Thor 2' was pushed back to November, 2013:

http://www.slashfilm.com/thor-2-pushed-july-november-2013/

Now that Disney is moving forward with Lone Ranger, even giving the movie a revised release date (May 31, 2013 — more on that movie in a few minutes) the studio is moving some other things around. Most notably, Disney has pushed Thor 2 back from July 26 2013 to November 15, 2013. That July 26 date isn’t going to be devoid of Disney product, however, as the studio will stick Phineas and Ferb in there.

So a new director would have almost 2 years to get things in order.

Ah. That simplifies things. Maybe this is a chance for del Toro to be reconsidered for the job. I'd love to see where he could take the characters, story and (most of all) the visuals.

Well it nice to see who ever will be replacement will have more time to work on things. Hopefully a good director will be picked. So far marvel has ended with good directors. I do agree del toro would be great here on thor. Heck I would love to see him on dr. Strange too. We know he has a relationship with marvel with sheparding the possible hulk tv show. So it would be great if he decided to do a film for them somewhere down the road.

Well Patty has finally made some comments about leaving the film:
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/thor-2-patty-jenkins-270210
"I have had a great time working at Marvel. We parted on very good terms, and I look forward to working with them again. I have a long love of superhero films and I'd been saying over and over again to my agents at CAA that I'd like to do one. The Marvel guys are so brave in terms of who they choose overall, and I don't think they had any pause about me being a woman."

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/thor-2-alan-taylor-daniel-minahan-272033

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the company is looking at two director prospects: Alan Taylor and Daniel Minahan.

Marvel was also in the middle of hiring a writer when the Jenkins exit occurred. Don Payne had written a draft and Sheldon Turner was among those being discussed to work on the script, but the new shortlist of possible writers consists of John Collee, whose credits include Happy Feet and Master and Commander: Far Side of the World, Robert Rodat, the scribe who created the TNT show Falling Skies and wrote Saving Private Ryan, and Roger Avary.

Looks like natlie portman isn't happy with patty out as director:
http://m.superherohype.com/news/articles/169043--natalie-portman-speaks-out-against-patty-jenkins-dismissal-from-thor-2
Natalie Portman Speaks Out Against Patty Jenkins' Dismissal From Thor 2 by Silas Lesnick December 14, 2011

She's still contractually obligated to star in the 2013 release

Following a report last week that Patty Jenkins was removed as the director of Marvel Studios' Thor 2, comes word from The Hollywood Reporter that at least one actor from the original film is none too happy with the decision. According to their story, Natalie Portman is "furious" at Jenkins' dismissal from the project.

Jenkins previously directed Monster starring Charlize Theron, who won an Academy Award for her performance in the film. She received an Emmy nomination for directing the pilot of AMC's acclaimed series "The Killing" and has also directed episodes of "Entourage" and "Arrested Development."

Said to be a huge proponent of Jenkins' involvement in the first place, Portman is nonetheless contractually obligated to appear in the November 15, 2013 release, no matter who the studio ultimately decides on to helm.

Although the article notes that Jenkins would have been the first female director to tackle a Marvel Studios property, that honor went to Lexi Alexander with 2008's Punisher: War Zone.

"Waaah, I didn't get what I wanted! Waah"

Shut the fuck up and do your job, Padme Portman.

Anything that pisses her off is a-okay in my book.

It's not as if anyone came out of the theater saying: "Damn, Natalie Portman was the best thing about 'THOR'! I can't wait to see HER again!!".

Probably most any decent actress could've played her part in THOR. A lesser known actress may have even blended in better. The movie still would've done well.

Definately being a baby there. Sure she is a goood looking lady and a decent actress. But I have heard these crap things about her in the past. But its always sucks when stuff like this happens. Which leads to issues with castmates and getted fired or leaving a picture. Which sucks when those happen. But she still is over reacting a bit mu@h.
