'Thor 2' Back on Track as New Director Is Found


Chris Hemsworth


Accomplished TV director Alan Taylor, who has been Marvel Studios' favorite, reportedly win the race to direct the 'Thor' sequel.

After going through a case of creative differences with the priorly-selected directors, "Thor 2" has found a new one. Marvel Studios reportedly would pick Alan Taylor from the short list to replace first movie's director Kenneth Branagh who decided not to continue, and Patty Jenkins who quit earlier this month.

Taylor made most of his accomplishments on television, directing among others the episode of "The Sopranos", "Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones". He made a name as a feature film director in 1995's "Palookaville".

Taylor reportedly has been a "favorite" since Jenkins' departure. The studio narrowed it down to final two but did not reveal who. The candidates were John Collee (Happy Feet), Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan), Sheldon Turner (X-Men: First Class co-writer), and Robert Avary (Pulp Fiction).

First reported by Deadline, the recruitment of Taylor would put the movie back on track to meet its November 15, 2013 release date. Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are set to reprise their roles as the titular character and his love interest respectively. Portman allegedly was furious when Marvel "fired" her friend Jenkins over the creative differences.
