Thor actor Chris Hemsworth has made it perfectly clear that he is disappointed that director Kenneth Branagh will not be returning for the sequel. However, Chris has given his approval to Patty Jenkins, who has been rumoured as the replacement director for Thor 2.
Hemsworth explained, “Branagh read every comic book he could get his hands on. She also looked like she had done her homework.” He then continued, “She has a great take on the story and a solid grasp on that kind of universe.”
The first Thor movie came under much criticism from movie goers, however the fact it managed to bring in a massive $446million worldwide has guaranteed a sequel. Patty Jenkins has not yet been officially confirmed for Thor 2, which is currently pencilled in for a July 26 2013 release but Chris Hemsworth’s approval should help her cause.
