"Thor: The Dark World" is widely considered to be a low point in the MCU. It's no secret that director Alan Taylor clashed a bit with the studio. Well, as reported by Inverse, while promoting "The Many Saints of Newark," Taylor revealed he'd like another go at his Marvel flick, provided the opportunity.

"I was cheering for Zack Snyder when he was doing that and thinking, 'Will he pull this off?' This is amazing. I think every director was kind of rooting for that. I would love to, I mean to. Can you imagine that? They give me however many millions of dollars they gave him to go back in. Yeah, I don't think I'm going to get that phone call."

Speaking a bit further, Taylor elaborated on the troubles with his "Thor" sequel behind the scenes:

"I focused all my attention on making a certain movie, and then in the editing process, decisions were made to change it a lot. My regret was that the movie that got released was changed quite a bit. I have a great fondness for some of the things that went away in the original cut. There was a kind of quality a wonder to the thing that was beautiful to me."
