Patty Jenkins is out as director of 2013′s Thor 2, Deadline reports.
The Monster director is said to be leaving as a result of “creative differences,” though she may end up working on a superhero movie after all — just not, apparently, this one.
Jenkins was officially announced as the director of Thor 2 back in October, following a few weeks of speculation. Jenkins would have taken over from Kenneth Branagh, director of the original Thor. It would have been her first foray into the genre, and a rare example of a female director helming a superhero film.
A new director is expected to be chosen quickly, in order for Marvel Studios to make the previously announced release date of Nov. 15, 2013. Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston are all on board to return for the sequel.
