What the hell? Scrawny Daniel Craig as Thor? Are they nuts!?
Thor has to be tall and imposing, he's the Viking god of thunder for f's sake.

Why, was Russell Crowe "too fat" nowadays to be considered for this role?
He's the man who won the Academy Award for Gladiaor (2000), so a role like Thor should be a shoe-in for him.
Russell Crowe isn't too fat, he's too short.
Fans should brace themselves for disappointment when the lead role is cast. Really, what are the chances that the director will find a 6'6" actor who weighs 300 lbs? These are the essential requirements for the role of Thor, as far as fans are concerned.
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be debunked.
