One of the oldest MCU mysteries has now been solved. Originally, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins was employed by Marvel Studios to direct Thor: The Dark World, however she left just some months after being introduced because the director. People have hatched loopy conspiracy theories why that occurred over time, however now we all know immediately from her why she left.
In a giant characteristic in Vanity Fair, Jenkins addresses the departure:
“I didn’t imagine that I may make a very good film out of the script that they had been planning on doing. I believe it could have been an enormous deal—it could have regarded prefer it was my fault. It would’ve regarded like, ‘Oh my God, this lady directed it and he or she missed all these items.’ That was the one time in my profession the place I actually felt like, Do this with [another director] and it’s not going to be a giant deal. And possibly they’ll perceive it and find it irresistible greater than I do.” The director shook her head. “You can’t do films you don’t imagine in. The solely motive to do it could be to show to those that I may. But it wouldn’t have proved something if I didn’t succeed. I don’t assume that I’d have gotten one other likelihood. And so, I’m tremendous grateful.”
MCU followers will do not forget that all of that occurred again when the Marvel Creative Committee was still running the show at Marvel, which precipitated quite a lot of complications for Kevin Feige earlier than Iger put him immediately in cost in 2015. One wonders if the identical factor would’ve occurred if Jenkins was requested to direct a MCU film with out that committee working the present.
