^ Hiddleston was linked to the role of Thor, causing much 'but he's too skinny!' sort of indignation. Obviously, we were all overlooking the obvious.
As I said before, I Sky+'d Wallender but don't recall his role in the one I viewed -will be paying closer attention the next time. Moviehole.net is reporting that Marvel are deliberately casting unknown or little known actors for this movie, as oppose to the Downey jrs, Nortons etc of their other self-financed movies. Whether this is due to lack of confidence or possibly over-confidence in the project remains to be seen. Hopefully it shows just the right amount of confidence!
