Kenneth Branagh Shares Why He Is Not Directing Thor 2
Kenneth Branagh sat down recently to talk about why he left the sequel to his Summer box office smash Thor, as well as gives his thoughts on Patty Jenkins taking over.
Thor hit theaters this Summer and blew people away. Everyone was excited to see where director Kenneth Branagh would take the sequel that is due to come out in November of 2013. Then Marvel broke the news that Branagh unfortunately would not be returning for Thor's next adventure and that director Patty Jenkins had taken over for him. MovieFon caught up with Branagh to ask why he left the project and the answer is quite simple, timing.
"It was simply timing. I loved doing the movie, I'd love to do another movie for Marvel, and it was just timing. The requirement for me was just to get back in the saddle so swiftly that it wasn't really feasible, but it was a decision [Marvel] understood."
He also shared his thoughts about Jenkins taking over for him, expressed excitement over the choice adding he cant wait to see how the second film develops.
"I, along with a lot of other people, are very excited about the appointment of Patty Jenkins. I think that's a great choice to direct the movie. I know that Kevin Feige and all the people I worked very closely with, who were absolutely parts of the creation of that movie, are keen to produce a great second picture. So it was the right decision for me and for them and I am really looking forward to see how the second one develops."
Thor 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on November 15, 2013!
