Executioner Casting Thread
 
I found it kinda weird that Enchantress had a casting thread and Executioner didn't, so here's the Executioner casting thread.

I'm leaning towards Kevin Durand, I might be in the minority for this, but I don't really want The Rock to have this role.

Edit: Oh and Nathan Jones

I see where you're coming from, having seen Robin Hood, and Durand is taller than Hemsworth too.

Indeed and something similar to his artificial Fred Dukes muscles in X-Men Origins: Wolverine would look good even better on him as Executioner.

How about Nathan Jones? He is 6 Foot 11 and weighs 360 pounds!

^^^ Oh hell yes, I might even put him over Kevin Durand, but I don't want Executioner to tower over Thor THAT much in the movie.

Nathan's face does look ALOT more like the Executioner's though, put those two black stripes on the top of his head and they'd almost look identical.

The resemblance is uncanny...someone call his agent :word:.

If Branagh comes back for the sequel we'd probably get an Oscar winner in the role!

^^^ Nah I doubt it, that would be very unnecessary and a bit too costly.

I'd like to see Nathan Jones for the role.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson! He is charismatic and he draws a lot of attention. Go for it Marvel. By the way he is a beast!

BigThor 06-05-2011 01:38 PM

Re: Executioner Casting Thread
 
^^^ Nah, Nathan Jones and Kevin Durand would be far better choices for the role.

Re: Executioner Casting Thread
 
Since the Thor film broke the "color" barrier with Heimdal, I'm going to say Terry Cruz for Executioner - although I'd rather see him as Luke cage.

Nathan Jones looks incredible but Cruz has the acting chops to be mean, funny and tender. Ba pa pa pa pa pa, power!

BigThor 06-07-2011 04:46 AM

Re: Executioner Casting Thread
 
^^^ I don't think they should over-do it, changing Heimdall's color was enough.

And I don't think being funny and/or tender are prerequisite for the role.

Re: Executioner Casting Thread
 
The idea of Jones is cool; I thought the helmets were awesome on the movie and hope they'll recreate his from the Kirby Days.

I'll get back to you if I think of anyone else; I'm good with fan cast choices.

BigThor 06-13-2011 11:20 PM

Re: Executioner Casting Thread
 
^^^ Cool idea, but I like Executioner better without his helmet for some reason.

Of course not - just using those traits to illustrate that Cruz has range as an actor vs. just being a wall of muscle. I'm no longer concerened with race when it comes to the Asgardians since the film did a good job of establishing them as a multi-racial group of advanced beings. We see ethnicity in the "Odin's hall" crowd at the beginning, among the Asgardian soldiers and I'm pretty sure in the final banquet. I'm color blind on casting from here in.

Durand would be great....so would Jones

I would prefer someone who is an actor first and muscle mass second. Every actor can gain muscles with the right trainer.

Yes, similar to Chris Hemsworth and Hugh Jackman.

Exactly, get someone from Australia. Russel Crowe or something.

Russell Crowe is too expensive of an actor for a role this small, but I think an unknown Australia actor would be great for this role.
