<i>Monster</i> Director Patty Jenkins Also On The List To Helm <i>THOR 2</i> For Marvel Studios

Well this is a surprise...It was previously reported that Brian Kirk might direct the upcoming sequel to Kenneth Branagh's THOR, but now we have a new info saying that Patty Jenkins is on top of the list. More after the jump...



After Brian Kirk, we have a new director on the list for Marvel Studios' THOR sequel. And that is Patty Jenkins. She is best known for directing the critically acclaimed film Monster starring Charlize Theron. Recently, Jenkins also directed the Pilot episode of AMC's The Killing. Deadline has more info:

"Marvel Studios is getting close to naming a director for Thor 2, and I’m hearing they might go with a surprise: Patty Jenkins, best known for directing Charlize Theron to an Oscar in Monster, and also for directing the superb pilot for AMC’s The Killing. This would be a real surprise, because women directors aren’t usually high on the list for superhero movies. Let’s see how this plays out, but it looks pretty serious."
