    That was unexpected! I wonder who'll be the next choice.

    Well, since I didn't think she was the right choice for Thor 2, I'm not that disappointed to see her leaving this film. However, I do believe that with the director's chair once again vacant, that they should consider postponing the release date instead of rushing it to meet the May of 2013 deadline. The director is a very important position in a movie and they must take their time finding the right person before they start shooting.

    I'd really love to know what these "creative differences" always are.

    Same here. I wonder if Kevin Feige was being too demanding again.

    I feel like it wouldn't matter what directors Marvel gets in general for their movies since they have a specific vision for them so any creative input from the directors wouldn't be so huge.

    This is what it boils down to.
    This was HIGHLY unexpected.



    Hey folks How many other Marvel movies have directors that have dropped out? (besides X3)

    Haven't seen any of her work... so its not much of a loss to me.

    Lets hope they can find a great replacement and fast.

    You'd figure all these 'creative differences' stuff would get ironed out before the director was hired. Isn't that what they're supposed to do? See if they're all sympatico on what film they want to make.

    Talented director stepping down from a project due to "creative differences" is NEVER a good sign.

    It's impossible to figure out every single detail about the movie the person wants to make before hiring any cast or crew. Especially with a movie that's an adaptation and a sequel.

    I don't how this can be seen as a good or bad sign, since we know nothing at all about the 'creative differences''.

    That sucks. She seemed like an unorthodox, but promising director to take on the material and such. (And I think her involvement would get some great actors and encourage the ones under contract like Hemsworth, Portman and Hiddleston to do even better.)

    Marvel Studios really needs to allow some creative freedom beyond the buildup for Avengers 2. Let's hope the next director actually makes it to filming and post-production.

    Why is it always "creative differences" when it comes to the Marvel films?

    Marvel seems to want things their way or nothing. Not to say that's a completely bad thing but then why hire creative talent only to force them into a certain mold of things?

    As long as they keep Shane Black on Iron Man I'm good.

    I'm guessing they wanting something more commercial, whereas Jenkins maybe wanted more character moments. Pretty much the same thing that happened with Incredible Hulk.

    Many possibilities come to mind. But the one I tend to favor is that directors usually like to be the one's with the vision and when you see the movie it is that director's vision you are seeing. However in this case Marvel has their own creative vision and they want directors who are talented and like-minded with regards to bringing their vision to life.

    I think usually stuff like this is ironed out before the director is even hired but apparently sometimes things can crop up even after hiring. When that happens it looks like poor communication was going on behind the scenes(possibly a fault of both parties but Marvel as the owner & one driving this project is the more responsible party). That said, Vaughn was originally on Thor1 and then left and was replaced by Branagh. It's not an X-Men 3 scenario here.

    I have no feeling regarding her as a director, so I don't care if she leaves the project.

    I just hope they find someone that loves the material. None of the directors they've hired for their previous movies have much style. Shane Black actually seems the most unique so far. The Marvel directors have all had workman-type experience and not necessarily unique visions (before or after their Marvel work). Therefore, I'm sure they'll find someone who can do what they want done.

    They should hire me to direct it. I have experience in the field. And I'll work for next to nothing, since I love the material.

    I see no evidence of that. TIH was unique because of Ang Lee's disaster preceeding it. Thor was a bonafide hit which would make Marvel more willing to take risks rather than less.

    It just seems like somebody(more likely on Marvel's side) dropped the ball in the 'finding a director on the same page as them' phase of the project. Apparently they should have vetted Jenkins more than they did.
