“Thor 2” director Patty Jenkins bolts over creative differences

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Hammer of the Gods! Marvel’s sequel to last summer’s hit, “Thor,” suddenly finds itself in search of a new director after “Monster” helmer Patty Jenkins bailed over “creative differences.”

Jenkins was set to replace original “Thor” director Kenneth Branagh, who left to focus on smaller, more intimate fare. In a THR issue due to hit stands on Thursday, Jenkins – who was set to be the first female director of a Marvel Studios film – admitted, “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. That’s the real revolution. 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.

“I met with all the actors and to my surprise, here we are,” she continued.

And there she goes.

Thought the trade did update its story late Tuesday night to say that Jenkins left on good terms with Marvel.

“I have had a great time working at Marvel,” Jenkins said in a statement. “We parted on very good terms, and I look forward to working with them again.”

As for the “Thor” sequel, it’s still on track for a Nov. 15, 2013 release. And making that date is possible, so long as Marvel gets someone in the chair soon. The “Thor” plot likely will work as a standalone adventure, though the Norse God (played on screen by Chris Hemsworth) next will appear in Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers,” out in theaters in May.
