    It would have made me so much happier if his name was Professor Harrison Ford.

    Why am I getting the feeling that this movie is going to have a really cool Asgard section then get bogged down in a boring "relate to humans" middle then get awesome when he punches stuff in the end?

    Anyway, I'm glad to see so such talent.

    Well, it's clearly gonna have a lot more to do with humans than we initially thought. You don't hire Stellan Skarsgard just to play some bit part. Hopefully the human stuff is as engaging as the superhero/myth stuff. They've managed it in the comics and humanity has, of course, been an important part of Thor for his entire existence.

    It seems likely this will be Barraza's role:

    probably will be chewy. Also i think they will probably balance the asgard and earth stuff.

    I'm still most excited/worried for Hemsworth and Hiddleston.

    Who's Joshua Dallas? I thought Stuart Townsend was playing Fandral.

    He got the chop. He turned up 6 hours late for a costume fitting. But it must of been the final nail in the coffin after a series of events. I doubt he'd get sacked just for one incident.

    Yeah, I read the other threads. Should've figured there'd be a mention of it elsewhere before I posted. :o

    Will those last 3 guys be playing the Wrecking Crew? They did get their powers from Loki after all. They are only a black guy away from the 4 man band.

    I'd be cool with the Wrecking Crew, but Gatt would be perfect for the Absorbing Man. Then again, they could be anything from trolls to common, modern-day criminals, so I doubt we'll be able to guess with any accuracy.

    I reckon he thought the role was bigger than it actually was. Thus the bad attitude of turning up late and the like.

    wow! that mattey guy looks huge. and he's 6'10" ??? and interestingly, he ahs been rehearsing since oct. Def has to be a villian IMO

    If that's not a frost giant, I dont know what is lol. Nice to see a director who knows how to cast good actors and also good "action/stunt/motion capture" actors as well.
