Re: THOR-starts shooting Jan2010: Updates, Rumors & Casting till relea

Does anyone know, is Dr. Blake part of the Thor movie?

My vote for Thor - Daniel Craig. Put glasses on him, he's bookish and learned. Take off his shirt, he's the Thunder God. I know he's older than they're aiming with this movie... but I'd say, work the character's age around the right actor, not the actor around the supposed age.

Daniel Craig already turned it down so I hear. Besides, Daniel Craig is like tiny. He's like 5'5.

Awesome if true. Deadline Hollywood is farily accurate but I'll still await the formal announcement.

Be interesting if two generations of onscreen Kirk go into separate leading comic roles. What with Chris Pine still on the short list for Green Lantern.

Slashfilm says the same, quoting the usually-right Nikki Finke (Damn, I'm never going to get used to that name) :

So does that mean he won't be playing Sam Kirk in the Trek sequel?

Hey, good for him!!!!

He was great in the short part that he had in Trek.

I wonder if that pushed him over the finish line in getting cast!

I was in the Skaaragard camp but I'm happy with this announcement. I thought Hemsworth did a great job in a short but significant role in ST - much like Linus Roache did in Batman Begins, but with even less screen time. Nice to see him making the jump from supporting role to lead actor in another high profile gig.

Perhaps they'll cast Shatner as Odin now!

Huh, seeing how Branaugh cast himself as Iago in his take on Othello and himself as Hamlet in his take on Hamlet I was hoping he'd cast himself as Loki...

He's too old to be Loki now. Would've been perfect 15 years ago.

John Simm would be the perfect Loki. He played him in Doctor Who practically.

If true then I think it would be great casting. He was very convincing in his short role as George Kirk.

Just a nit. Branagh didn't direct that version of Othello.

Oh, sorry about that.

Hmmm, John Simm...

Why not have David Tennant play Loki? Nice to see him play a malicious yet hammy and humorous villain.

Don't be. Almost everything Kenneth directs he's also in, so, it almost follows that whatever he's in, he's directed.

Tennant as Loki could be fun.
