Patty Jenkins Out as ‘Thor 2’ Director

ALTIt was always somewhat surprising that Patty Jenkins was brought on to direct Thor 2. More surprising, though, is the fact that she has left the film!

Creative differences were reportedly behind Monster director Jenkins’ decision to leave the highly anticipated follow-up to this summer’s blockbuster Thor.

Marvel Studios is believed to be scrambling to fill the void left by Jenkins, since Thor 2 is due for release on July 26, 2013. One possibility might be Game of Thrones’ Brian Kirk, who was linked to the film before Jenkins signed on (and after Kenneth Branagh decided not to return to the director’s chair).
