Latino Review is reporting speculation that Director Alan Taylor has been kicked off of Marvel’s Thor 2: The Dark World. The basis for this is a source who has recently proved to be correct about the news that Composer Carter Burwell was also let go. Latino Review got the news of Burwell’s departure two days before it hit popular trade site, Deadline Hollywood.
Now, the same source has tweeted to LR that:
It also appears so is the director who seems to have been asked to take a long vacation until AFTER the film opens.
No one seems to be able to get any confirmation of this, so far, but based on the sources track record, there’s a solid chance that it is the truth.
Either that, or Carter Burwell is bitter about being let go and has set up a fake Twitter account to troll the fan media… Which we really don’t think is the case.
Thor: The Dark World is set for a November 8th release.
Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
