patty jenkins on thor 2

2013’s Thor: The Dark World is widely regarded as one of the worst movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s currently the lowest-rated MCU film on Rotten Tomatoes, even coming up short of 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. (That’s genuinely impressive!) Thankfully, though, the movie’s reputation is only as the MCU’s punching bag and not as a career-ruiner for its one-time director Patty Jenkins, who went on to great success as the filmmaker behind DC’s Wonder Woman movies. In a new interview, Jenkins reflects on her brief stint at Marvel, and explains why she’s “super grateful” that she didn’t end up directing Thor: The Dark World. Read More »

Chris Pine on Wonder Woman 1984

Earlier this week, director Patty Jenkins debuted a jaw-dropping poster for Wonder Woman 1984 on her Twitter feed, but the only footage that’s been shown so far was what played at Comic-Con last year and the additional brief look we saw at CinemaCon this April.

In a new interview, Pine was asked about the differences between working on this sequel and working on the first film, and while he didn’t specifically answer how it’s possible that his character comes back, he did talk about how this film operates and how Steve Trevor operates within it.
