The director of Monster, to take control of Thor 2

I really really enjoyed Thor this past Summer.  It was a lot of fun and had a great blend of action and drama.  It's almost obvious these days that every Superhero film is going to have a sequel at one point or another.  Some are planned back to back (i.e. Thor), while others take a long time in between (i.e. Ghost Rider).  Thor was a big hit and a sequel was scheduled for July of 2013, that is no longer the case.

The movie is being pushed back to November of 2013, and Kenneth Branagh, who directed the first film, will not be back.  Instead, Patty Jenkins (Monster) will take over.  This is an interesting choice considering Jenkins' limited experience.  Monster is the only full length feature film she has directed.  Granted she directed Charlize Theron to her first Oscar; but does that warrant a big-budget film?  Well, I guess so.  We all knew Branagh could handle the drama of the first film, but he far exceeded our expectations with the action.  I'm thinking Jenkins could end up doing the same thing.  Either way, I'll be there!
