PATTY JENKINS To Direct THOR 2

According to Deadline, Patty Jenkins has been hired by Marvel Studios to direct Thor 2.

Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman will both be returning for the sequel as well as Tom Hiddleston.

Marvel Studios’ Kevin Friege will produce the sequel to Thor, which made $448 million worldwide earlier this year.

Jenkins is best known as the director behind 2003’s Monster in which Charlize Theron starred in and won the Oscar for Best Actress for her portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos.


Earlier this year, Jenkins directed the pilot for the AMC drama The Killing and was nominated for an Emmy. She has also directed episodes of Arrested Development and Entourage.

After hiring Kenneth Branagh to direct Thor and with this news it looks like Marvel is sticking with directors known more for dramas than action and/or fantasy films and I like the choices being made. I thought Thor was pretty good, but it wasn’t without it’s problems. Please Ms. Jenkins, no more dutch angles!

Thor 2 will open in theaters on November 15, 2013.
