    I thought Thor's alter-ego Donald Blake was not going to be in this film. I could have sworn we read someone here that KB decided to go another direction.

    Come on now. Neither are going to Oscar nominated, but Biel has at least attempted to stretch her acting muscle with the Illustionist and Easy Virtue. She may lack that "je ne sais pas que" but at least she doesn't harm the films she's been in either. She's got a great physical look.

    Despite Stan Lee's writing style, it ain't Shakespeare.

    You're right. According to Kevin Feige, Donald Blake won't be in the film. Months ago, there were some rumors about DB being written into the script, but all was denied in a recent interview.

    two things:

    1. Ken friggin Branagh, if he thinks she can pull it off after seeing her read, I have faith...and if she sucks he wont take her.

    2. I guess she could still be Jane Foster. Even though theres no blake in the film, Thor does still spend time on earth, so a love interest in Midgard isn't outta the question.

    Why would she be playing Ms. Foster if Blake is not in the film... I don't get bit. How accurate is this story? Is the link reliable?

    The article said that she WOULDN'T be playing Foster, but rather that she would be playing either Sif or Amora

    Not sure how reliable the article is

    ****ing knew Marvel could not refrain from a commercial hire like this... can't wait to see Biel trying to pull of an accent next to British actors... Illusionist here we come.

    Yeah, damn Marvel. :whatever:

    Next you'll be moaning about how little they're paying Biel, FT.

    You really dont like how they do things, do you?

    Wasn't he the same guy who was complaining about the casting of Hemsworth and Hiddleston, saying the movie was going to sink without more "commercial" actors in the cast?

    I find Jessica Biel very good to play Sif, I find her very beautiful and she is a good actress.

    Except that, I really would like to see Liv Tyler in Sif role.

    Liv Tyler is already Betty Ross.

    Unlike most on here I don't have a huge problem with JB's acting. Is she the greatest? No but neither is Scarlet J.

    Yeah... I wasn't confident. But I was thinking more along the lines of veteran actors that are type cast, but are solid and well known. Not the freaking lead female love interest. All I can say is... if Marvel goes in this direction there will be no turning back. They will need yet another voluptuous actress to complete the love triangle, so I definitely think a Portman is still in play. At least she'd be a better actress, even if she can't hold her own against Biel bodywise.

    So you think someone who's against Biel is ok with Johansson's casting..?

    I never read it, but according to the people that have, the original script had a Viking playing a part in teaching Thor humility. Since it sounds like they changed the Earth portion to the modern day, maybe they swapped that character out for Jane Foster?

    Yes. I am. Because there is still a huge difference, actingwise, between Biel and Johansson. That´s like comparing Adam Sandler to Christian Bale.

    If there ever is a scene where Thor is hurt and she has to ever do this, Biel is the only chick that has the body type where it would be believable that she was really able to hold him.

    Good reply :hehe:

    And neither Johansson or Biel can really act, come on -- they're just bodies. Bah, I only like Biel's body. Top notch.

    Biel would be my ideal choice! I pray that this rumor is true. To the people that are saying she can't act, watch The Illusionist. She's beautiful and can deliver on screen. Marvel is making the right moves yet again.
