    ...So, I think they had minimal contribution in those films, other than consultants (maybe).

I'm not certain about that. My understanding is that Marvel Enterprises (now the Disney-owned Marvel Entertainment, for which Marvel Studios is a subsidiary) received production credit for Daredevil, the FF movies, and Elektra, as well as the horrific Punisher movies. The way I see it, Producers carry ultimate responsibility for the quality of the finished product because NOTHING happens without their explicit approval, from choosing a director to adopting a marketing strategy. Directors, in contrast, typically do not even have final decision power over seemingly "Director" matters like casting or selection of screenwriters. That is why, if a film objectively or subjectively does poorly, I assign the first-level of blame to the producers.

As you stated, in the case of the upcoming Thor 2 movie it seems that the primary producers (namely, Marvel Entertainment) are opting for a "budget stretching" approach in their selection of a director. Fair enough - they are paying the bills, not me. But although everyone hopes the result will be an enjoyable film, it is equally fair, even at this early stage of production, for us to express concern about that strategy. Do you know if any casting or screenwriter decisions have been made?
