Less than a month after Patty Jenkins parted ways from the helm of Thor 2, Marvel Studios has found the one the man they want in charge of bringing the superhero back to theaters in November 2013. Deadline is reporting that the studio has signed director Alan Taylor to tackle the sequel.
Some of his credits include the well-known HBO series "Oz," "The Sopranos," "Boardwalk Empire" and "Game of Thrones." The director will be charged with leading confirmed returning stars Chris Hemsworth, 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 once again.
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.
