So while she didn't necessarily win the Oscar, she still played a vital part in Theron winning hers.

I'm just glad they've finally settled on a director. I've seen most of his work and he has a lot of experience (compare to Daniel Minahan), so I guess he's up to the task to direct this movie.

You say he's more experienced than Daniel Minahan? That's good to hear, I'm glad they went with the most experienced choice.

Well to me, his resume seems more impressive than Minahan. Speaking of which, I hope Marvel appoints the new writer soon.

That was the premise but as with most of Thor's original premise it went down the toilet when they actually hooked up in the 90's and it read like the writer's fantasy unrestrained.

I am disappointed that Jenkins passed as I thought her style might add some depth the relationships and dynamics in the film. However, I don't really have a problem with Taylor. As long as he sticks fairly close to the source material and can adequetely adapt a few kick ass action sequences.

Actually I prefer Thor to get a little more "fantastical" than the previous installment. Marvel already indicated that he would spend time exploring the other realms and I think the story and director are safe embracing more of the fantasy elements of Thor's story.

I kind of envision a fantasy/romance style story as Thor tries to find Jane who has become lost amongst the realms. I feel like Branagh kind of set the table for such a tale and we just need a capable director to bring it home.

Never seen anything the guy has directed so couldnt honestly judge, seems a bit of an underwhelming choice but we'll see.

I still think Alan Taylor directing credits make him a more logical choice for THOR 2 than Jenkins, although logical choices aren't always the best ones.

^Yeah, again we'll see, its a shame they couldnt get the guy who directed Solomon Kane, Michael J.Bassett that was a great fantasy movie that was pretty similar to Thor in a lot of ways, so I think he could have done a great job and he has directed a few features.

Think he is doing the Silent Hill sequel though so not sure he would have had the time.

Solomon Kane was ok IMO; its narrative meandered too much derailing the pacing.

Well, Taylor also worked on "Sex and the City" made we can get "Amourous in Asgard" featuring Enchantress, Sif, Valkyrie and Frigga!

Ah, okay. Apologies then, but to be fair I wasn't GETTING all that riled up for it. At least not as much as you're thinking. Honest.

Do I care about who's directing the film though? Absolutely. That isn't coming from fanboy extremism, at least not from my part.

I just don't see Thor as a film that's purely justified if it's a categorised in the fantasy genre. It has too many sci-fi backdrops in its core idea.

Admittedly, more emotions are boiling in that other thread with Jenkins and Portman.

Amora can't seem to keep any man she wants, just like her sister couldn't. Loki dated Lorelei but quickly threw her to the curb, it seemed like he took Sygin a lot more seriously. Amora's whole thing with Heimdall didn't pan out either and Skurge prefered to die a warrior's death instead of letting her string him along. Thor loved Jane, a mortal who was considerably less attractive than Amora. The Enchantress is living proof that looks can't make up for serious personality flaws.

i think marvel is confused about what to do with their properties. it's almost as if they're confused about their genres...

thor isn't simply a fantasy fable ala CONAN. yes, granted it has more of those elements than his other avenger buddies, and it does make him understandably more unique, like the world of tech is to ironman, but THOR as a tale is much more than that. Alan Taylor should undersand that when he's directing the piece

If anything, I think Taylor will bring a much harder, more violent edge to Thor. Which it desperately needs. I do like the first film, but it was too kid friend and fluffy, no real sense of danger.

Thor, whilst a superhero yea, is a Norse warrior who smashes people around with a ridiculously sized hammer. There needs to be an edge of grittiness and violence to his stories, along with the fantastical.

I'm sure Taylor does. When he directs Game of Thrones, he clearly isn't focused on the Tolkien side of it --- he could care less about the swords & sorcery stuff. He's more interested in the drama and the character interactions. And I'm sure that's what we'll see from him in Thor 2. Too.

Thor especially sees writers bring what they think the property should be rather than what it is. So you get writers who completely leap on the idea of the fact its a myth, or that its like The Lord of the Rings, very few these days especially seem to grasp the Sci Fi aspect of it or the superhero aspect. Lots of Thor's earliest earthly villains were given away to other chracters.

They want to write mythic Thor rather than Marvel's Thor in short and that just isn't the point. Thor's character goes down the toilet when he's make a hotheaded, promiscuous brute like his namesake.

I have recently started watching GOT but havent gotten to an episode Alan has directed yet. I look forward to doing so though just to see if he has a certain style in which he directs.

Basically I just wanna see what he has in his locker but GOT as a whole seems a good basis for a Thor movie, though obviously more sci-fi elements would need adding.
