Not really, Constantine is his only bad film, on the whole he's an alright film director. His track record isn't of mediocrity and crap at all.

Read I Am Legend then watch the movie. Compare them. The movie missed the entire point of the story. That and the CGI was terrible.

The ending was changed in the last minute aparently, and i'm judging a film, not the process of adaptation, The Town for example is aclaimed, yet, those who read the original story say the film was much inferior to that.

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.

TDW had the aesthetics, but the original had everything else.
Agreed.

Went to see Catching Fire today and I stick by my earlier statement that Francis Lawrence should direct the third Thor movie (you can find my thoughts on it in the film's thread). Marvel would be incredibly lucky if they got him. If not, then he'd also make a pretty awesome Wonder Woman movie

Ideally I would want Branagh back for Thor 3. Thor is my favourite solo MCU movie and the movie just totally wowed me when I 1st saw it, it got me reading some Thor comics as well.

I think Taylor could have made a good sequel if given the freedom to do so, but Marvel wouldnt allow that and I doubt he will be coming back.

So, Branagh is my director choice for Thor 3.

My choice for Thor 3 is exactly the same as it was for Thor 2. Vadim Jean.

Agreed on Branagh. I don't think he's coming back though, as he could have easily directed Thor 2 but seemed content moving on to Jack Ryan. His main reason for not coming back was the short re-load time between 1 and 2, yet Ryan came out only two months after TDW. Sounds like he's done with the franchise.

I wouldn't mind seeing Taylor back since most of the problems I had with TDW had to do with editing and the feeling of too many cooks in the kitchen working on the script. Probably would prefer someone new at the helm, however.

I believe he was in pre-production on Ryan when Thor 2 was announced though? I may be remembering wrong though. I really hoped he would return to the franchise someday but it seems he is done with it. Shame, I loved Thor, my favourite solo movie so far.

I wouldnt mind Taylor coming back either as long as they gave him more freedom, it seems Marvel were intent in meddling with Thor 2 from the start and the movie ended up being such a disappointment to me. Taylor is busy with the new Terminator movie now though and if that is successful I think they will move straight onto a sequel.

imo they missed on both Branagh and Taylor. I hope Marvel finds their Russo brothers for Thor with this new movie. The story for it has far more potential than Thor 2 ever did, now they need a director with a real vision and love for the character to see it through.

They just need to find someone who actually cares about the movie they are making and isn't just a hired gun.

My choices are:
Louis D'Esposito
Trent Opaloch
Walter Simonson
Jesús Orellana
Wes Ball

D'Esposito is because has been around since the beginning and has directed some shorts. Opaloch was the DP of TWS. Simonson because Thor 3 has a great chance to adapt his adaptation. Orellana and Ball I think based of their shorts.

As always, I want to see Guillermo Del Toro do this one. As much as I disliked Pacific Rim, I blame bad acting and since Thor/Loki/Odin are already cast that shouldn't be any issue.

Besides, take the best moments from the colossal battles in Pacific Rim and apply them to Thor vs Surtur. You could have a really awesome David v Goliath moment.

I know some people see it as a little uninspired, but I think GDT or even Peter Jackson would be great, IF they had a passion/vision for the character. Even if marvel goes more outside-the-box than this, these are definitely the types of directors that Marvel needs to be courting.

And my dream version of Thor 3 definitely includes a towering Surtur, as in the pic you posted.

Has anyone seen Dracula Untold? I haven't seen it yet, but I was wondering how Gary Shore does with the sweeping supernatural visuals in that, and if he could be a good candidate for Thor 3. AFAIK he's an unproven director, with this being his first big budget venture.

If he's ready to give live action another go after John Carter, and if he has a strong vision for the story/character, I don't see why not. He seems like he would work well within Marvel's culture. Here's an article where he talks about wanting to build reshoots into his shooting schedule from the beginning of JC, for example, which is Marvel's M.O. as well: http://articles.latimes.com/2012/sep...ector-20120908

^I wouldnt mind Stanton, JC was certainly not as bad as some people made it out to be, but I would prefer someone with a bit experience and consistency.

I doubt many will agree with me, and I dont see Marvel ever working with him, but I would love Peter Jackson to do it.
