Who’s Thor 2’s New Director?

And it is…drumroll please…Alan Taylor!

Chuck, tell the folks at home what Alan’s won!

Thanks, Bob, Alan has won a movie that’s coming out in 2013 that needs a script rewrite and has a star that doesn’t even want the job anymore! Alan, your mission, should you choose to accept it, and apparently you just did, is clean up the total mess Marvel seems to be making of a sequel to a promising franchise through bad talent relationships and idiotic micromanagement!

Does anybody else get the feeling, the strong feeling, that we’ve got kind of a repeat of “Iron Man 2” on our hands here?
