Patty Jenkins reveals why she didn t direct Thor: The Dark Word

Before Wonder Woman came Patty Jenkins way, she was attached to direct Thor: The Dark World for Marvel Cinematic Universe but the director realised it would be impossible to make a good sequel with the poor script she had. Jenkins at the time was known for directing Charlize Theron-starrer Oscar-winner Monster and the pilot episodes of AMC s series The Killing . The director, in an interview to Vanity Fair, said she decided to walk away from the MCU film as she thought it would hurt her chances as a woman filmmaker. I did not believe that I could make a good movie out of the script that they were planning on doing. I think it would have been a huge deal it would have looked like it was my fault. It would ve looked like, Oh my God, this woman directed it and she missed all these things , she told the publication. Jenkins said she was aware of the pressure that came with being the first female director of a superhero movie like Thor and the implication it would have on her .
