I'm Red Orion from CBR. And Coipel isn't that timely of an artist, his Legion Lost work had three fill-ins, his Avengers had both delays and fill-ins and House of M (which had lead time) still suffered from delays.

He actually did do a really short interview after Thor #2 came out for the Comicbook Orange over on YouTube.

I agree with you on DiVito but I'd hate for McGuiness to do the fill-ins because his style wouldn't really fit with JMS' story.

I agree, DiVito would fit the style and tone of what JMS is doing now better than McGuinness. But, on the other hand, maybe a McGuinness fill-in could be a good excuse for JMS to ramp up the action and have Thor fight an actual villain. Radical idea for the current Marvel universe, I know, but it could happen. ;\)
