Creative Differences Force Director Patty Jenkins to Leave 'Thor 2'


Chris Hemsworth


The 'Monster' helmer is no longer attached to helm the 'Thor' sequel, leaving Marvel Studios to move quickly to find a new director.

"Thor 2" is hunting a director again. After Marvel Studios announced in October that Patty Jenkins has been locked to tackle the helming duty, it is now reported that Jenkins is no longer attached to the much awaited superhero movie.

According to Deadline, Jenkins has dropped out of the "Thor" sequel due to creative differences. Though she has exited the project, it is reported that the 40-year-old filmmaker will probably end up working on one of Marvel's superhero films, but not in a sequel.

Marvel is now moving quickly to find a replacement for Jenkins since the sequel has been scheduled to be released on November 15, 2013. The studio has already contacted some agencies to find a new director.

Jenkins, who directed 2003's "Monster" that helped Charlize Theron win an Oscar, was previously attached to "Thor 2" to replace Kenneth Branagh, who bowed out the project last June. She was originally expected to be the first female director to work for Marvel.

"Thor 2" will bring back Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins as Thor, Jane Foster and Odin respectively. Screenwriter Don Payne returns to provide the screenplay.

Back in September, Marvel President Kevin Feige teased that "Thor 2" would "take Thor literally to other world." He revealed to Entertainment Weekly that the sequel will "primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster and how the new dynamic with his father (Odin) is working out as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds."
