Alan Taylor Will Direct Thor 2

Marvel Studios finds its Thor 2 director. The news fired up today that Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire) who was rumoured to be on the short list to replace Patty Jenkins will indeed direct Thor 2. It was reported that Patty Jenkins left the job due to differences with Marvel on the sequel.

This will bring the film back on its feet to meet its November 15, 2013 release date. The sequel brings back Chris Hemsworth as the hammer-wielding superhero, from a script by Thor co-writer Don Payne. The Kenneth Branagh-directed original grossed $448 million worldwide and launched the star of Hemsworth, who reprised Thor in The Avengers and then played the latter title role opposite Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman for Universal.

Hopefully, Thor 2 will be released on November 15, 2013 without any delays. Leave a comment below and let us know what you think of Alan Taylor as the man in the director's chair.
