If Branagh has immersed himself in Marvel then clearly he will be taking on the role of Thor himself

I do think Branagh will play some kind of role in the film. Volstagg, perhaps?

^ It really depends. There were some people claiming he should play Loki - and I have to question if they even know what Branagh currently looks like There was a character in the Protosevich draft named Eiric who I think Branagh would be perfect for, but that's operating under the assumption that he's still in the script. Without giving anything away, he was a Viking man who was a catalyst for a lot of the change in Thor's character.

I'd rather see someone like Brendan Gleeson or Mark Addy as Volstagg, personally. Besides, I doubt Branagh could really focus on filming with a huge fat suit on

Good call on Brendan Gleeson. Such an underrated actor, I'm always happy to see him doing more movies.

branagh will not be thor, silly thought... he will have a SMALL role in the movie... remember he needs to spend a lot of time BEHIND the camera directing. Marvel will not take a chance like that..... i mean he's not sylvester stallone...lol..

I don't think anyone seriously thinks Branagh will be Thor, or wants him to be.

I would LOVE to see Branagh cast himself as Thor. But probably not for the right reasons

I'm definately looking forward to seeing Branaugh's take on Thor. It's good to hear that he is so into the material.

Heh;

Not unless he's immersed himself in a huge vat of steroids as well.

You do realize that Branagh has been the lead in several movies that were just as challenging as Thor, right? Henry V and Hamlet weren't uncomplicated, little movies. We'll be fortunate if there's an action piece in Thor as exciting and grand as the St. Crispin's Day battle in Henry V.

Branagh will probably take a smaller part simply because it's where he fits best.

I hope we get some kind of news on the Thor movie at the NYCC. I wouldn't bet on it, though...

More from Quesada on the Thor movie:

http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?f...ogID=469023114

JQ: Yeah, I know, I know—you’ve been talking about it incessantly. But…I had to hang out with Kenneth Branagh, so I couldn’t make it out to see you. Perhaps even more importantly, I got to hang out with Brian Michael Bendis. We had our first “creative committee” meeting on the Thor movie with Kevin Feige and all the Marvel West guys, Kenneth Branagh, and Bendis and so on. We went over a kind of beat-by-beat rendition of the Thor movie and who the characters in it will be and what it’s about, and the thoughts and philosophies behind it all. It was absolutely, absolutely fantastic. I walked away from that meeting with kind of the same feeling I had after I first met Jon Favreau and we started talking about Iron Man. Branagh just gets it. The guy was quoting stuff to us—verbatim. Classic Thor stories, modern stuff, straight out of the comics. The guy has really immersed himself in the stuff. If you’re a Thor fan, a Marvel fan, you should feel real confident this is going to be a great, great movie.

And before anyone asks, no, we did not talk about the casting. Truth be told, we need to figure out the totality of the characters before we start to figure out actors to play them.

sooooo that means we wont get our thor til april? If they are still figuring the world out in feb and discussing the purposes of the characters then it sounds like casting is still a month or two off.

Thor is scheduled to begin shooting in la in july.....so march/april sounds right for an announcement...

So I guess it's the waiting game until we find out who will be Thor. I hope it's unknown because 1.) It will save Marvel money especially for 'The Avengers' & 2.) Thor can be what Superman was for Reeves.

Isn't he contradicting himself? Saying they didn't talk about casting, and then saying that he knows that no casting is underway?

A slightly more descriptive interview with Quesada about it:

Quote:
The “Thor” movie — and director Kenneth Branagh’s vision for it — has been quite the topic of discussion among comics fans since the veteran Shakespearian actor and director was first rumored as likely helm to project, then confirmed his involvement to MTV News back in December. After Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada and the publisher’s primary architect, Brian Michael Bendis, revealed last week that they’d met with Branagh to discuss the “Thor” movie, we grabbed Quesada for a quick recap of that meeting during this weekend’s New York Comic Con.

“We spent seven or eight hours with Kenneth where he meticulously took us through the beats of the ‘Thor’ movie along with [Marvel Studios head] Kevin Feige and our friends at Marvel West,” Quesada told MTV. “We just sat there, and it was almost like he acted out the entire movie.”

As Quesada and Bendis shared with fans via Twitter last week, the pair had no shortage of compliments for Branagh’s willingness to get to know the Marvel universe.

“You just thought, ‘Wow. This guy has immersed himself in the Marvel culture — not just in Thor — but in the Marvel universe in general,” said Quesada. “He knew a lot of stuff — some things that I didn’t even know.”

“He was reciting Thor stuff from the past, continuity events, quotes from different books, little bits and pieces from stories that he really found fascinating — whether they were old [Jack] Kirby and [Stan] Lee stories or [Walter] Simonson stories or modern stuff that we’re doing,” continued Quesada. “He really got it.”

I'm curious how they're going to handle the special effects if they start shooting in July. They're leaving themselves very little margin for error with basically a year to go from the start of principal photography to release. I know it can be done, but I start to wonder if they're going after a 300-style green screen effect.

I believe a July start date was just an assumption by a poster here.

IM2 starts filming in April for a May release - Marvel will likey use a similar schedule for Thor (June start date for a July release)
