Patty Jenkins walked away from the opportunity to direct 'Thor: The Dark World' as she did not feel she could make a successful movie from the script.
Patty Jenkins left 'Thor: The Dark World' as she did not believe she could make a good film from the script.
The 'Wonder Woman' director had been attached to direct the 'Thor' sequel but departed the project after three months due to ''creative differences'' because she had little faith that she could make a great movie from the script she was presented.
In an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Patty said: ''I did not believe that I could make a good movie out of the script that they were planning on doing. I think it would have been a huge deal - it would have looked like it was my fault. It would've looked like, 'Oh my God, this woman directed it and she missed all these things.'
''That was the one time in my career where I really felt like, 'Do this with (another director) and it's not going to be a big deal. And maybe they'll understand it and love it more than I do.''
'Thor: The Dark World' was eventually helmed by Alan Taylor, although it was panned by critics and is considered to be one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's weaker films. Patty feels that she wouldn't have got the chance to direct 'Wonder Woman' had she not left the 'Thor' project.
The 48-year-old director said: ''You can't do movies you don't believe in. The only reason to do it would be to prove to people that I could. But it wouldn't have proved anything if I didn't succeed. I don't think that I would have gotten another chance. And so, I'm super grateful.''
Patty - whose sequel 'Wonder Woman 1984' has been delayed until August due to the coronavirus pandemic - has praised praise Marvel for giving a female director the chance to helm one of their movies, even if didn't work out.
She explained: ''I really have nothing but positive things to say about Marvel, because, honestly, they gave me that chance in first place and it was not en vogue to do so.''
