According to Deadline, director Patty Jenkins has walked off the Thor sequel.
According to the report, Marvel Studios is quickly looking for a replacement, though I wonder why the studio isn’t driving up to Kenneth Branagh’s house with a truckload of money asking him to return. There is a rumor that says Branagh will actually appear in Thor 2… but that shouldn’t/wouldn’t stop the director from pulling double duty.
In any case, Jenkins exit is over creative differences – an easy out for both the studio and director to keep from getting into a He Said/She Said argument that plays out across the rag mags and Internet websites.
Thor 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on November 15, 2013, but now I wonder if it will make that date after Jenkins exit.
