Alan Taylor directed Thor: The Dark World.
He was interviewed for the documentary Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe.
- In an interview with Upprox, Alan Taylor explained that he ultimately didn't like to direct Thor: The Dark World as while he was given total creative freedom during filming, the movie was then turned differently in post-production, an experience he wishes to never repeat on someone else. This was the reason why he didn't return to direct Thor: Ragnarok.
- Alan Taylor previously worked with Clive Russell in The Emperor's New Clothes.
