THOR: THE DARK WORLD Director Calls Working With MARVEL 'Particularly Wrenching'
Marvel Studios' President Kevin Feige recently refuted claims that his studio wasn't director-friendly, but now Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor is speaking out. In an interview with Uproxx promoting his new film Terminator: Genisys, Taylor spoke out on changes the studio made to the film after it shooting was complete.
"The Marvel experience was particularly wrenching because I was sort of given absolute freedom while we were shooting, and then in post it turned into a different movie," Taylor revealed. "So, that is something I hope never to repeat and don’t wish upon anybody else."
Taylor contrasts this with his work on Terminator: Genisys, which he says was very collaborative.
Thor: The Dark World had several issues involving Marvel Studios and its director. Taylor replaced the film's original director Patty Jenkins, who left over "creative differences" two months after being hired. During filming, Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron writer/director Joss Whedon was also called in to re-write several scenes.
A third film, Thor: Ragnarok, has been scheduled for release November 3, 2017.
