Patty Jenkins Reflects on Dodging Thor: The Dark World Bullet
Patty Jenkins is one of the most exciting filmmakers working in superhero blockbusters at the moment. After helming Wonder Woman (2017), her and Gal Gadot’s follow-up, Wonder Woman 1984, became an instant must-see. It’s all the more impressive considering her past brush with the superhero genre… and how she avoided directing what is widely considered one of the worst Marvel Studios movies, Thor: The Dark World.

Previously tapped for that gig in 2011, Jenkins would have been the first woman director to helm a superhero movie for the studio, but it was not to be. Soon dropping out of the project over reported “creative differences,” Thor: The Dark World went on to be directed by Game of Thrones’ Alan Taylor and released to a generally apathetic reception.
