Natalie Portman 'Furious' With Marvel For Ditching Director Patty Jenkins From 'Thor 2'

As you may know, last week Patty Jenkins was relieved of directing duties for Thor 2. Now Natalie Portman, who is contractually obligated to appear in the sequel, is reportedly furious about it.

Portman also lobbied for Jenkins to direct and made no secret that she was proud to be a part of the first female-driven Hollywood mega-blockbuster.
 
Sources close to the removal aren't very specific with reasons ranging from Jenkins not being decisive enough in getting the film made to Marvel giving her too many creative constraints. Jenkins' only feature film credit is the 2003 drama Monster, which earned Charlize Theron an Oscar.
