Or he could go the other way and put on the pounds to play Volstagg.

Not a bad deal; basically eat as much as you like because it's 'for a role'.

Seriously, whoever picked Kenneth Branagh for this learned no lessons from Hulk. Probably didn't even see it.

You object to picking talented directors with experience in filming Medieval-style action?

I agree. All these people saying Branagh should play Loki or Blake. I don't know if they have watched anything Branagh has been in since the 90s but his a 48 year old slightly chubby man. The guy is too old and too out of shape for those roles.

This article says JMS isn't doing the current rewrite. The article from AICN about a month and a half ago said he had already turned his rewrite in. I don't see where there is any contradiction

Also, if the script is still anything like Protosevich's draft, Branagh should play Eiric.

That was for Shakespeare. Ang Lee tried to turn Stan Lee into Shakespeare, and it didn't work. I fear the same will happen with Thor.

And I can't take Brian Blessed seriously. He makes me laugh every time I even think about him.

How about Adrian Brody for Loki?
I know he does mostly serious film but Iron Man and TDK showed us that superhero fimls can be serious. He might have to bulk up a bit but I always saw Loki as this thin seemingly weak looking character who actually wields unspeakable power

Ultimates I & II were great. Except when Hulk talked about being horny, the Pyms beat each other with toasters, and Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch felt each other up

This makes me so angry every time I read something like this:

There was nothing "Shakespearean" or "psychological" or "deep" about Ang Lee's abortion of a "Hulk" movie. It was nonsensical, aimless, souless, clueless, dull, randomly campy, and all around garbage. Oh, and on top of that, it had ZERO respect for the source material.

Please don't compare Marvel Studio/Kenneth Branagh's Thor (which has not even been made yet) to that awful waste of celluloid that was Ang Lee's Hulk. Marvel Studios has yet to make a bad film involving one of their characters; and Branagh is about as good a choice for the Thor character as I can think of.

1) I agree that Ultimates I & II were excellent. I actually will eat my words that Mark Millar is a total hack. (Although there was some "hacky" material in Ultimates, but I digress.)

I also agree about not being a big fan of the Pym domestic violence angle or the whole Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch storyline. I also didn't like some of the sillier "extreme" (read "hacky") angles that Millar threw in for pure shock value. Examples: Iron Man having a brain tumor, Thor being such an extreme peacenik, every character being a pill-popper, drug user of some variety.

I disagree with you about your dislike of The Hulk's "horniness". This is one of the few Millar "extreme" angles that I did like. I also like that he made The Hulk a cannibal. It just really highlights the "Id" nature of the character and really emphasizes the importance of containing him, and makes it very difficult for the team to recruit him for their missions.

2) I agree completely with you about Ang, if you read my prior post!

While it worked within the context of the story, it made Hulk into more of a plot device than an actual character.

That's some serious hate you've got for AngHulk. I agree with all of it, but it also had a few somewhat redeeming aspects - namely Connelly & Elliot. Somehow Elliott has ended up in two of the worst Marvel flicks. Even guys like Donal Logue are 50/50.

You're kidding right? It was more faithful than the latest one, at least were the origin and jumps were concerned.

Anyway, anyone else think they need to get the ball rolling on Thor and QUICK? It is a movie that will need a lot of effects shots and they dont want to be in TIH situation again were the trailer comes out only a few months before the movie.

Dooooooood, Ang Lee's Hulk should have been hella more Xtremez.
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


I think Thor should end with a newly Thor-ed up Don Blake about to run into battle against invading Stone Men. Also, it should be called "The Mighy Thor," verily!
