This month, Marvel has made an odd move to pick MONSTER director Patty Jenkins to direct THOR 2. Now the director herself had recently confirmed the ongoing talks is indeed taking place after all! Here's what she had to say below.
I can't say, but yes. I can't say anything definitive, but it's exciting to be in talks with them about it.
In the meantime, she also praised Marvel for their choice of directors in previous movies.
I think Marvel is really ballsy to think outside the box. And I think everyone they've talked to and hired has been interesting.
So, is Patty Jenkins reading comic books in preparation for THOR 2?
Right now, I'm reading all of ... I can't say.
If she confirms to direct THOR 2, it'll be very interesting to see how is she going to live up the expectation that original director Kenneth Branagh had previously set a high bar in the first movie.
