Getting someone to direct Thor 2 has proven surprisingly tough, with both Brian Kirk (Game Of Thrones) and Patty Jenkins (Monster) signing up and then swiftly stepping aside due to creative differences with Marvel.
Just a few days after Jenkins left, Marvel had narrowed down the playing field to just two men, Alan Taylor and Daniel Minahan, both of whom had directed episodes of Game of Thrones, which certainly gives a hint at what they’re hoping for from the sequel.
Now THR reports that Marvel has chosen Alan Taylor and he’s about to enter talks with the studio to direct Thor 2. Taylor has already made one movie, Palookaville, and he has also helmed episodes of Mad Men, Nurse Jackie, and Boardwalk Empire.
Marvel is keen to get a director firmly on board as they still want to meet a November 15th, 2013 release date, so they’ll be hoping that not only can they sign Taylor, but that he actually stays with the project until it’s made.
