Meh.

Don't get me wrong, Hopkins is a very good, if over-rated (IMHO), actor. But this is kind of a too-obvious choice. He's a little overused in this sort of mentor role. Zorro, Hrothgar, that Alexander movie ... That's one of the reasons I was glad Michael Caine was cast as Alfred in Batman rather than Hopkins, who was apparently first choice. I'd rather have seen Blessed, Stellan Skaarsgard or someone a little more offbeat land this role. But I suppose landing an acclaimed Oscar winner isn't too shabby either.

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

It appears that nothing has changed the initial time table and this announcement here reaffirms their start date as of mid-January.
Filming on Marvel's film adaptation of "Thor" is set to get underway in Los Angeles starting mid-January reports Production Weekly.
Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore and Samuel L. Jackson star in the Kenneth Branagh-directed film which has the powerful but arrogant warrior (Hemsworth) cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment for nearly igniting a war.
Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
Shooting will continue for several weeks before moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico from March till late-April.
With the main cast in place and the casting call for extras having gone out a month ago they are ready to roll film.
I am eager to see this movie underway.

Jaime Alexander has begun stunt work for her role as Sif.

Jaimie Alexander ("Kyle XY") has been tweeting about her training for the role of Sif in director Kenneth Branagh's comic book adaptation Thor, which starts filming in January. Some recent tweets from her Twitter account talk about her stunt training:
1st day of stunt training for Thor... kinda nervous
wow.......that was pretty dang tough....but a sh*t ton of fun!!!! need to sit in an ice bath for year.....am beyond SORE!

Seems the Warriors Three have been cast. Stuart Townsend will finally get to swash and buckle almost a decade after being sacked as LOTR's Aragorn. Ray Stevenson will pull double Marvel duties - guess they're not holding the failure of Punisher War Zone against him. And remember when his Rome co-star Kevin McKidd was tipped to play Thor? Finally Tadanobu Asano rounds out the trio - never heard of him.

The always brilliant Idris Elba (The Wire, 28 Weeks Later) has also joined the cast.

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

While doing an interview Natalie Portman indicated that Kat Dennings has been cast in Thor as well. She did not mention what role she will be playing.
Natalie Portman revealed to MTV this weekend that Kat Dennings (Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist) will have a role in director Kenneth Branagh's Thor. She didn't reveal what role Dennings will be playing, however.


My guess is she'll play a buddie role to Portmans character. It could be one good reason Portman knows she has the part. I doubt Kat has been cast in a comic part but if she has who would make sense from Thor/Asgard/Shield?

Karnilla the Norn Queen is probably the most prominent mythological female character next (though she's not an Asgardian).

What about the Enchantress? I heard her role being bandied about for the actress who was eventually confirmed as Sif. (And, yes, she may just be a random human female so that Portman has someone to play off on.)

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Hair colour isn't necessarily determinative, but Amora is a blonde, and Hollywood isn't exactly short on them, so I'd be surprised. I suggested Karnilla since she's got black hair.

That said, I think the suggestion that she's just a gal pal for Jane is most likely.

Some spoiler-ific stuff here but it's in inviso-text. I couldn't resist and had a peek. I wouldn't consider most of it major spoilers but there is at least one that people might want to avoid. There's also some stuff about the Avengers movie.

This makes me very happy.
