    Hell, would have been a good Captain America. Now that I see he was Kirks father, I can't wait!

    Well, I guess that's one thing he's got going for him: attractive enough to draw in people who are uninterested in Thor. :)

    He didn't make much of an impression on me in Star Trek. I hope he's got enough presence to pull it off. I've heard Australian accents with a few modifications sound very imperious and regal, so we'll see. I wonder if they'll make him bulk up for the role, too.

    The movie takes place almost entirely on Asgard. Blake makes an appearance towards the end from what we have heard of the revised draft.

    We've heard that Blake was added to the very end of the script, but we don't know in what capacity.

    the human side is'nt really in this movie i don't think so at least

    the story has been described as being “like a superhero origin story, but not one about a human gaining super powers, but of a god realizing his true potential. It’s the story of an Old Testament god who becomes a New Testament god”.

    I have no idea who this is, but at least the project is moving forward.
    I'd have a hard time seeing Craig in the role.
    Stop it.

    His looks did...lol. I loved the first ten minutes of Trek but I'd agree that he didn't make much of an impression as an actor.

    This is great news. For the people who aren't sure about him, don't worry. Branagh knows a thing or two about talent. :)

    Hemsworth is good from what i've seen. Other than the eye roll inducing mentions of Trips, True Bloods Alexander Skarsgard and Charlie Hunnam were also candidates.

    Thor is the Norse god of thunder. He became too arrogant so his father Odin banished him to live as a human--Dr. Donald Blake--in order to learn humility. He vacationed in Norway as Blake and was attacked by Stone Men from Saturn (it was the '60s ;)), so he ran into a cave but was trapped inside. He took a wooden stick he found in the cave to try and move the rock trapping him, but the rock was too heavy. He slammed the stick against the rock in frustration and was transformed back into Thor--turns out his father Odin had subconsciously guided him to Norway and the cave, since he'd decided his lesson in humility was over. Now feeling a connection to humanity because of his time as Blake, Thor decided to use his formidable powers (super-strength, flight, invulnerability, ability to control weather) and hammer Mjolnir (which the stick Blake found turns into when he transforms) to protect Earth as a superhero.

    It's on CS/SHH now, mentioning that it should be confirmed on Monday, I think this was a leak.

    Well they did say they wanted him under 28. That's probably why Skars was out of the running.

    Yeah, I'm fairly happy with him. I don't know how he'll perform, but I have to assume Branagh knows what he's doing. Hemsworth's definitely got the physical look for the role--big, imposing, handsome.

    I just don't get why Marvel wanted to go so young. Even Skars was young, but they wanted someone even younger.

    I guess for franchise potential. They don't want the guy they're stuck with as Thor for at least 2 movies (Thor and Avengers) to start showing wrinkles.

    NOrton is 39
    RDJ is 43

    The thing that I do like about Marvel casting is that they dont really care that much about age, unlike DC/WB

    I just don't like it when they cast young so that the actors can grow into their roles by movie 4. We don't know if we'll even get that far if this thing underperforms. Look what happened to Singer's SR. Not that Routh was terrible but Bosworth was. I thought RDJ/Norton castings would change the pattern.
