    Stellan Skarsgård On David Fincher, Lars Von Trier And Channeling Hugh Grant In A Rape Scene

    Natalie Portman Apparently Pissed At Marvel For Firing Patty Jenkins From 'Thor 2' Director's Chair

    Signing up to a Marvel movie has to be a heavy undertaking these days. Famed for being financially thrifty, creatively controlling and normally insistent on constrictive multi-film deals, the studio might have proved successful with their times at bat so far, but having already estranged Jon Favreau...

    Marvel Continue Low-Rent 'Thor 2' Director Hunt, Consider TV Helmers Alan Taylor & Daniel Minahan

    As essentially a self-financing entity, Marvel has, perhaps understandably, been careful to look after the bottom line on their self-produced movies since "Iron Man." The movies have, without exception, cost north of $100 million, but the studio has been careful to keep the money on the sc...

    'Monster' Director Patty Jenkins May Wield The Hammer & Helm 'Thor 2'

    So, what the fuck? Granted, Marvel's choices for directors can often be surprising -- Ang Lee? Kenneth Branagh? -- but for the most part they usually see something in the helmers that others don't. While earlier this summer, "Game Of Thrones" and "Boardwalk Empire" helmer Brian Kirk was being tossed...

    'Simpsons' And 'Fantastic Four 2' Writer Don Payne To Pen Script For 'Thor 2'

    Yeah, we know, we're going to have to change our name to The Thorlist if this doesn't stop soon. Having exceeded expectations to become one of the top-grossing films of the year so far, Marvel are understandably keen to get moving on a sequel to "Thor", even with the character reappearing next summe...
