Patty Jenkins Leaves 'Thor 2'

Patty Jenkins has left as director of Marvel's 'Thor 2,' citing "creative differences" as the reason for Jenkins' departure.

With a release date planned for November 15th, 2013, a new director is expected to be announced soon. She won the directors chair from the likes of Drew Goddard, James McTeigue and Breck Eisner so maybe one of these will step in to replace her.

Patty Jenkis had this to say about her exit:

"I have had a great time working at Marvel," she told THR. "We parted on very good terms, and I look forward to working with them again."

Jenkins also said she hoped to return to the superhero genre. “I have a long love of superhero films and I’d been saying over and over to my agents at CAA that I’d like to do one,” she said. “That’s the real revolution. The Marvel guys are so brave in terms of who they choose overall, and I don’t think they had any pause about me being a woman.”
