LR was originally Dec 21, 2012.
Thor was originally (and tentatively) set for July 26, 2013. (as reported on June 30 2011)
But on Oct 13, 2011 they both got new dates (& Patty Jenkins was officially announced to direct), LR for May 31 2013, & TDW for Nov 15 2013. Disney's "Phineas & Ferb took July 26.
Jenkins left Dec 6 2011, Taylor joins Dec 2011.
May 31 2012 TDW gets moved up to Nov 8 2013, LR gets pushed back to July 3.
Whoo hoo, someone else who cares about getting history right! Seriously. I really don't like when people come up with stories based on some revisionist history to conveniently support to their arguments.
