Patty Jenkins is out as Thor 2's director and why am I not surprised? Damn you, Marvel! Anyway, the company, which micro-manages their films to the nth degree, has signed on Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor. The script, originally by Don Payne, is now apparently being reworked by Robert Rodat, who wrote Saving Private Ryan, according to Screenrant. Rodat also received an Oscar nod for his work.
While I am disappointed that Thor 2 will not have a female director, I am excited about the return of my favorite Asgardian badass bitch, Sif. Jaimie Alexander confirmed recently that her character, Sif, will return in this next installment. Cue the chorus of Kermit the Frog Yay's. I love Sif and cannot wait to see more of her kicking some super villain ass. And, wait for it, Sif could very well make at least a cameo on Marvel's Avengers, which opens May 4. Who knows? I'm keeping my fingers crossed because that would be killer.
Thor 2 is scheduled to hit theaters November 15, 2013.
