News: Thor 2 FINALLY Has A Director

So, after the on and the off dance involving Patty Jenkins and Marvel Studios, we finally have a director for Thor 2.And he is Alan Taylor. No, don’t worry, I haven’t heard of him either.

Apparently a big director for the HBO, the sweary channel in America, he’s handled the likes of Oz, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, and most likely the show that got him the gig, Game Of Thrones. While not as interesting a name as Patty Jenkins, or as exciting as the likes of Kenneth Branagh, or Iron Man 3’s Shane Black, he appears a solid, if unspectacular, choice. He’ll have the means – Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Anthony Hopkins are all contracted to return.

Thor 2 is scheduled to hit screens in November 2013 so let’s wish Taylor luck because he’s got his work cut out following Branagh’s Thor.
