    I believe that Karl Urban is a well-rounded choice. He can act, he's decently built, and he's over 6'.

    We're never going to find a Thor who has every single attribute we're looking for. However, we can find someone who is well-rounded enough to take the role, and do a fine job with it.

    I believe Karl Urban would be a solid choice, and would surprise a lot of people in a positive way.

    Has anyone every interviewed him, and asked him his views on playing the character?

    Karl Urban. He can bulk up. And does he need to have his eyebrows dyed? Would this look be okay for Thor? I think so.

    I will probabley get flamed for this but I think its too bad Daniel Craigs Bond because I reckon he would make a decent Thor working under his old pal Vaughn.

    I'd be very happy with Karl Urban as Thor, HOWEVER I'd also be happy with and know I'm going to get flamed for this but I think Josh Holloway could give us a good Thor

    He's got the look, and he's built pretty decent, I'll give him that. He's also
    closing in on that 40-yr old mark. That's old enough to be...

    Now, I would personally not have any problem with the age element. In fact, I agree with you on looks alone he could do it. The only thing that would cause me hesitation with Holloway is that he has that Southern accent which is pretty thick. If he could shake it, then I'd say he'd be a solid option.

    There's definitely a superhero role out there with Holloway's name on it. Maybe this is it. I think Urban's more suited for the role, but Holloway is a star on the rise. Unfortunately, he's a star on the rise, with his age working against him. Not necessarily a negative for acting, but maybe for these types of roles.

    Vladmir Kulich. 6'5". Dunno what his build is like right now, but he could carry 260 lbs, easy at his height.

    Remember, Thor isn't Sized like a 640 lb man...he's sized like 250-300 lb man...his bones and muscles are just more dense.

    Only problem is he's 50.

    I've mentioned Holloway before; at 6'2" and lean muscled...he could easily be Thor.

    Put on a little mass, and put slight lifts in his shoes, and you'd have a 6'4", muscled, Thor.

    I like Karl Urban, but I'm a fan of 300's Michael Fassbender for the role. His character (Stelios) was by far my favorite in the film. He had charisma, charm, acting chops, the build, and the look. I think he's downright perfect for the part.

    I'm surprised no one's commented on this suggestion.

    Nathan Jones. 6'10" 350lbs of pure muscle. He'll make Routh's Superman look like a boy scout.

    EDIT: Found a good vid of him on YouTube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=4vgUu6qebj0

    He also has no acting chops. Better save him for Skurge The Executioner or Ulik.

    That's only because he's been typecast as the dumb, big guy. At the very least, they should at least have him do a reading.

    Well, I've seen him talk before. He's a former WWE pro-wrestler, and they ****canned him, because he was neither athletic enough, nor a good enough of a talker to be worth TV time.

    He's also an ex-convict; was in sing sing for 10 years on armed robbery charges.

    I really didn't know or care about his chops as an actor until I saw the suggestion. He's never played anything that really required acting onscreen, as far as I know or have seen, so I have no basis on which to form a judgement on.

    I knew he was a wrestler. Didn't know why they let him go. But thanks for "clarifying".

    I also read about his armed robbery conviction on Wiki. But what bearing does that have on anything related to the movie?

    I just thought he has the stature to pull a Thor off, without worrying about adding any more bulk. But hey, looks aren't everything, right?

    Yeah, he would be good Ultimate Thor.

    EDIT: AND NO WRESTLERS, PLEASE!!!
