Re: The Director of THOR 3
I think the ending also wasn't good on a film level, either. The original ending of the film also was nothing like the book, either. As an adaptation, it failed miserably. As a film, it had poor CGI and fell apart in the 2nd act, and had a poor conclusion (even outside the changes from the source material). It simply wasn't a good movie (this is my opinion, of course). Catching Fire was hard to mess up because it had a film friendly book to pool from, a film style somewhat already in place from the previous installment/good cast from 1st installment) and a good script. Without these things, he hasn't shown the ability to succeed. He can't craft a story himself.
