RUMOR: Natalie Portman UPSET that Patty Jenkins got fired from Thor 2
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
Most of us around the internet were surprised and excited about the idea of Patty Jenkins directing the next entry in the Thor franchise. Let’s be frank, it’s not often a female director is chosen to helm a big name project like this so it was a pretty big deal when it was initially announced. A lot of people were also pretty surprised when she abruptly severed ties with the project and stated that she would no longer be working on the project. One very surprised person was, allegedly, Natalie Portman who allegedly campaigned for the director the land the gig in the first place and that the directors departure wasn’t all sunshine and roses as depicted.

I was pretty interested in the idea of Jenkins directing this project but you know what? I trust Marvel more than I do Jenkins. Don’t get me wrong I’m not against female directors in the slightest. I just know that Marvel has been fairly particualar about how they’ve been handling their projects and so far I’m pretty happy with the direction they’ve taken with their characters. If they werent happy with Jenkins then I wholly trust their decision. It is still a little disappointing but I prefer that Marvel find the person they think will bring us the best Thor 2 possible.
Furthermore this story has a couple of holes. Since when do actresses outright retire after having kids? Sure she may have enough money to ride off into the sunset but she’s a young woman and always struck me as a career actress.
