Default Warriors Three Cast

Quote:
"Thor" helmer Kenneth Branagh has locked Stuart Townsend, Ray Stevenson, and Tadanobu Asano to play Warrior's Three, a trio of Asgardian adventurers who fight alongside the Norse god in the Marvel Entertainment drama.

Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Natalie Portman also star in the pic scripted by Mark Protosevich and Zack Stentz. Paramount Pictures will release "Thor" on May 20, 2011.

Stevenson, who'll next be seen starring with Denzel Washington in "Book of Eli," is currently shooting the Adam McKay-directed "The Other Guys" with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell.

Quite happy but shouldn't the actor who plays Volstagg be more...well, voluminious?

I guess Branagh is planning to give Stevenson the Kevin Durand/Blob treatment from WOLVERINE.

Even though Variety's article was strangely yanked the story is now up on Marvel.com

Quote:
Are you waiting for the hammer to fall on the big screen (Mjolnir, that is)?! Of course you are and so are we!

When Thor makes his big screen debut on May 20, 2011, he'll have some company with him!

Fandral, Hogun and Volstagg, longtime friends and fellow Asgardians who usually work together as a team known as the Warriors Three, are Thor’s allies and companions.

Fandral will be played by Stuart Townsend. The job of Hogun goes to Tadanobu Asano. And Volstagg will be portrayed Ray Stevenson.

They join the previously announced Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. Kenneth Branagh will direct.

"Thor" is one of a continuing slate of films being produced by Marvel Studios based on the Marvel characters, including "Iron Man 2" on May 7, 2010, "The First Avenger: Captain America" on July 22, 2011 and "The Avengers" on May 4, 2012.

Stay tuned to Marvel.com for the official word on all things to do with Marvel movies!

None of these really pop out at me. I can't really tell what kind of tone it sets.

Don't get me wrong I think Ray is Fantastic but I loved his Punisher/Frank Castle and was wishing to see more of him as PUNISHER.

I just done see Stagg at all... he is very Brooding which is the very opposite of Volstagg and he isn't very Husky like Volstagg not to mention the lack of red hair lol

Well I like those casting choices. Townsend can pull off that dashing, charming character. I don't know anything of Asano but I'm glad they went with an Asian guy. Stevenson is an odd choice, but I'll reserve judgement until I see where they're going with it.

Remember that, before his character took a serious turn in the second season, he was essentially the comic relief of Rome.

Stevenson is a great actor. But Volstagg? Baffles the mind to be honest. But Branagh knows what he is doing.
