Girl Power Rumored For Thor 2

Oh my God I hope this bit of Hollywood speculation comes true. It seems Marvel Studios wants Patty Jenkins to direct Thor 2. Can I get an Amen and a Hallejulah? Dead Line reports that Marvel is in serious talks with the director, who recently helmed the epic AMC miniseries, The Killing. She is probably best known for directing Charlize Theron to her Oscar as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in 2003's Monster.

RIP Andy Whitfield

Some sad news to report. For those of us who loved the Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Andy Whitfield, the sexy title character, lost his battle with non-Hodgkins lymphoma Sunday. He was just 39 years old.

A relative unknown prior to being cast, Andy appeared in all 13 episodes of the wildly successful first season as the Thracian slave. It was a huge success for the Starz network and caused a lot of talk with its graphic violence and sexual situations.
