Reply Subj: Uhhh, no...sometimes being a "producer" is a mere perfunctory title...

You are indeed correct, the number of "gift" producer credits is certainly high (see: Jon Peters). I suppose it makes people feel good about themselves.
Based upon the movies you listed, Marvel Studios' hit/miss rate is such that we can perform a public service by helping them select a screenwriter. With the apparent money MS will save in the choice of director, I'm going to go 'off the board' with two suggestions for screenwriter:
Quentin Tarantino: I know, I know. Simply trying to imagine what he would create swamps my meager brain. But an off-beat (to say the least) take on a comic book story could be boffo! There certainly wouldn't be a dearth of scenes with gratuitous violence. An R rating, however, might not be what Marvel/Disney is desiring.
Brad Bird: A very talented guy. A movie like Thor 2 wouldn't (and perhaps shouldn't) be that far afield from the animated projects he has mostly worked on. And has he worked on any project that wasn't decent?
