'Thor 2' to Be First Female-Directed Superhero Movie

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Another glass ceiling is about to be shattered in Hollywood.

Marvel has hired Patty Jenkins to direct Thor 2, making her the first woman to direct a superhero flick.

Jenkins comes with a pretty good resume, too.  She directed Monster -- the film that won Charlize Theron an Oscar. Jenkins also directed episodes of Entourage, Arrested Development and the critically acclaimed pilot of AMC's The Killing.

Thor fans will have to wait two years to see the sequel.  Thor 2 is set for a November 2013 release.
