MCU fans and DCEU fans often have a hard time getting together as the competing comic book film universes are competitive. The actors and filmmakers who work on the respective franchises, on the other hand, have often supported one another. Recently, Wonder Woman 1984 Filmmaker Patty Jenkins revealed in a conversation with Marc Maron that THOR: Ragnarok is one of their favorite MCU films.
“”[Ragnarok] was such a good movie. I’m actually so grateful that Thor found it [director] Taika [Waititi] because Taika is the most awesome for Thor ever. It is wonderful. Thor: Ragnarok is one of the best Marvel movies of all time, it’s that good. This movie is pure joy and so well done … it won’t matter [if you’re not into superhero movies]. Taika is a great filmmaker, and he just made a great film. “
Jenkins’ remarks are even more significant because she has a personal history with the Thor franchise. Before she started work in 2017 Wonder womanThe filmmaker became famous for her psychodrama in 2003 monster. According to Jenkins, her work had caught the attention of Marvel Studios, and they offered her the opportunity to make a movie for her, in a genre she had long wanted to deal with.
“It was just something I wanted, I wanted to make a great superhero movie, and I started saying that right after Monster. People were confused by [that]. I have every women’s film, a story about women who blah blah blah. I want to make films about women, but I don’t want to make films about being a woman. It’s so boring (laughs). I want to make films about women doing everything possible. People were kind of confused, but it became known that I wanted to make a superhero movie. And in Marvel’s favor [they hired me] on a film that didn’t require a woman at all, so I was always very grateful to them even though it didn’t work out. “
As it turns out, the movie Marvel wanted Patty Jenkins to do was the second Thor Movie, The dark world. After initial talks, Jenkins left the project, admitting that she always knew the film wasn’t going to go well, and as a director in that particular genre, she couldn’t afford to be held responsible for the film’s failures.
“They wanted to make a story that I thought wouldn’t be successful and I knew I couldn’t be. I couldn’t be that that had happened. I thought if they would hire someone to do it It wasn’t going to be a big deal. But I knew in my heart that I couldn’t make a good movie out of the story they were trying to make. “
