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.

    “I wonder why the studio isn’t driving up to Kenneth Branagh house with a truckload of money asking him to return.”

    I wondered the same thing.

  2. IIRC wasn’t Branagh’s reason for passing on Thor 2 a scheduling conflict? Is that conflict still there? If so can it or Thor 2 be finagled with to accomodate him?

  3. A: Who the heck is Patty Jenkins?
    B: I wonder what she was so Thor about?

    The Thunder God went for a ride
    Upon his favorite filly
    “I’m Thor!” he cried
    The horse replied
    “You forgot your thaddle, thilly!”
