We reported earlier today that Marvel was looking to possibly hire Monster director Patty Jenkins to helm Thor 2. I'm not fully on board with this move yet, but maybe she has some good ideas on how to tackle the character and story. Speaking of which, Marvel President Kevin Feige has actually offered a few little plot details for the Thor sequel saying he said would,
Take Thor literally to other worlds. Primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and how the new dynamic with his father (Odin, played by Anthony Hopkins) is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds,”
Wow! So they want to really explore the cosmic side of Marvel. Exploring some of the other intergalactic heroes and villains, which I think is awesome! It would be great to see The Enchantress make an appearance. But it's another big reason why I don't think Jenkins is the best director to take this on. This character and world seems completely out of her element. I don't mind Thor getting a woman's touch, just as long as she's the right director for the job. Obviously Marvel is seeing something that the rest of us aren't. So lets see how this all plays out. If they do hire her, then they have their reasons.
Marvel plans to start shooting the film April of next year, with plans to release it in theaters on July 26th 2013.
What are your thoughts on these little plot points that were revealed?
