"Thor" Sequel Loses Director Jenkins

Patty Jenkins ("Monster") will no longer direct the "Thor" for Marvel Studios says Heat Vision.

After Kenneth Branagh confirmed he won't be returning to helm the sequel, Jenkins was hired for the gig - making her the first female director of a Marvel Studios movie.

Officially her departure is said to be due to "creative differences". Jenkins adds "I have had a great time working at Marvel. We parted on very good terms, and I look forward to working with them again."

As late as Monday afternoon Jenkins was actively working on the movie so her leaving is sudden. The hunt is now on for a new filmmaker and the vacancy is expected to be filled quickly.
