I'm not saying that Taylor isn't capable or anything like that, I haven't seen him do his thing yet so I don't know. What upsets me is how Marvel Studios made the decision to choose Taylor. The how of it says a lot about what the studio has in mind: complaisance.
Listen, what I'm saying is that it's just a movie. Why are we getting all worked up about this? It's not life threatening so I'm not going to worry about it. i'll just wait and see how everything turns out before I speak my opinions on the sequel's merit.

Congaratulations to Mr. Taylor.
I hope we continue to get a balanced mix of Asgard and Midgard as we did with Branagh.

I see nothing about this decision that would make me worry(and I was fully on board Jenkins's out-of-the-box choice as well). Now if they can just get Roger Avary to do the re-write then I'll be all smiles.

So, with a new director finally attached, how long until we get casting news? 4 months? 6 months? what do you think?

I'm gonna guess 5, with Iron Man 3 news in about 3. Just a guess though.

I see Taylor directed the GoT finale, which was so much win I could hardly stand it. While I should be worried about his lack of a feature film resume, I basically watch every show he's been involved with, so I'm definitely gonna give him a chance.

Wasn't David Yates primarily a British television director before landing the Harry Potter franchise as well?

I think Theron won an Oscar for her portrayal in Monster. Did PJ even get nominated?

Theron won best actress and deservedly so. She was brilliant in that movie. Monster was a very good flick but it wasn't some amazing piece of cinema. It wasn't nominated for anything other than Best actress

It's not a bad idea....although Theron on Hemsworth sounds a bit cougarish.

I don't care if it turns out she's 100 years old, no one (especially me) can resist Charlize Theron.

I have a request. I've only read some of the early Lee/Kirby Thor stories and JMS's run. So could someone give me a quick schooling on what Enchantress and The Executioner are all about please?

As I understand it, Enchantress has a real 'fatal attraction' vibe for Thor.
