The director of Thor, Kenneth Branagh, has expanded on his initial “scheduling conflict” reason for why he isn’t directing the sequel. Read on…
I loved doing the movie, I’d love to do another movie for Marvel, and it was just timing. The requirement for me was just to get back in the saddle so swiftly that it wasn’t really feasible, but it was a decision [Marvel] understood.
Very much sounds like Marvel wanted to bring him back, doesn’t it? In any case, Branagh is also very happy with the choice of Patty Jenkins, and hopefully we’ll feel the same when the film release in two years time.
Two years…man, we better get at least one film before that, otherwise I’m seriously going to lose my mind.
