Thor 2 (2013): Marvel Studios Looking At Patty Jenkins To Direct

Body

picPreviously, Brian Kirk, of HBO's Game of Thrones fame, was mentioned as a possible contender to direct the sequel to Thor.

Kirk was said to be at the top of the list, but now a new name has made its way on to the list of names to helm Thor 2.

Marvel Studios is said to be looking at Patty Jenkins, known for directing Monster (with Charlize Theron winning an Oscar) and the pilot to AMC's The Killing, according to Deadline.

Deadline notes this would be a surprise because a female director is usually not up high on the list to direct a super hero movie.

An announcement should be made soon as Disney announced the release date for Thor 2 to be July 26th, 2013.
