"Thor" Sequel in Talks With Two TV Directors

Posted: December 11th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Thor" Sequel in Talks With Two TV DirectorsSubmit Comment
It was recently announced that Marvel Studios decided against hiring Patty Jenkins (Monster) to direct the upcoming "Thor" sequel. Since the film is already set to hit theaters on November 15th, 2013, the studio is in a rush to find a replacement.

THR has learned that two names have emerged: Alan Taylor and Daniel Minahan. Both of their resumes mostly consists of TV movies and TV shows like "Game of Thrones." Taylor also helmed episodes of "Boardwalk Empire," "The Sopranos" and "Mad Men," and directed the 1996 feature "Palookaville."

In addition to finding a director, Marvel is also looking for a writer. The new shortlist consists of John Collee (Happy Feet, Master and Commander), Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan), and Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction).

Come on, Marvel should just bring back the first movie's writers and also Kenneth Branagh to direct but if not then at least Branagh should produce Thor 2.

Writers Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stenz did not only great jobs on Thor but also X-Men: First Class.

Those two movies are the best comic book movies of the year.

Let's hope Marvel doesn't go downhill just DC Comics, hopefully not.

I guess this means Roger is out from jail?

I have liked most of Avary's work, so it would be interesting to see his take on this story. Hopefully he can make som improvements, because Thor sucked utterly.

f*cking Marvel stop being cheap little bitches and hire a director who's actually directed something. Might as well bring back Patty 'Queef' Jenkins for f*cks sake.

I'm not seeing this sh*t.

Thor 2 is a big budget Marvel movie that may (possibly) surpass the first Thor movie in box office sales. Especially if Thor is well received in the 2012 Avengers movie.

As such it needs an appropriate director, producer, and writers. Such as those used in the first Thor movie. Especially Branagh as director (I know he is unavailable).

The possible use of TV directors doesn't somehow seem good enough.
