Nearly two months after expressing her excitement on being picked to direct Thor 2, it seems that Patty Jenkins is no longer in charge of bringing the sequel to theaters in 2013. Deadline reports Jenkins and Marvel Studios have parted ways due to the age old Hollywood reason of "creative differences." The online trade does report the split is merely creative and no bridges were burned, hinting that the Monster director may tackle a different Marvel superhero in the future. So the search begins for a new director.
In the sequel, Chris Hemsworth will be joined by his co-stars Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige will be producing and screenwriter Don Payne has been charged with fleshing out the scripted adventure.
Producer Feige has already described the sequel's story by saying "We're going to take Thor literally to other worlds -It will primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster and how the new dynamic with his father is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds."
Thor 2 arrives in theaters November 15, 2013.
