    The things that scares me the most in that particular article is the news that Goyer may direct. He's not equipped to handle the scope that a Thor movie should be. He can write the script, but I want an experienced director at the helm.

    I think the problem with Rikki Lee Travolta isn't as bad as it seems since nobody here knows how good or bad he is from personal experience.

    #1 He needs to get rid of the Rikki name if he wants to play Thor. Keep it Lee Travolta for God's sake.

    #2 His face looks somewhat like John's. Are we all gonna be thinking Zucko when we're watching the film?

    I like the Travolta guy as a Thor option. Why?

    He is an actor.
    His face looks like Thor.
    He is 6 ft. tall.
    If they can bulk up Toby Maguire, they can get this guy pretty ripped.

    I would like either this guy, or a dude like the Vikings in the 13th Warrior. :up:

    Vladimir Kulich is his name. I personally think he'd make a better Omega Red than Thor.

    I wasn't suggesting that this guy be cast as Thor, just an example of how a random Viking lookin' guy could work.

    Ok, gotcha. He's been mentioned by some in the past as a candidate b/c of his role in The 13th Warrior.

    Thor's armor needs little to no modification for the big screen. The biggest decision in Thor's film look will probably be "beard or no beard?".

    I would bet some serious cash that on the big screen Thor will NOT have a beard. They will probably go with the look most used in the comics.

    Plus, Thor's costume probably will look way different than the classic look. Maybe something more like his "King Thor" outfit. Less yellow and blue, and maybe a different color cape.

    EDIT: Basically a flashier version of the pics above.

    I agree with the whiskers comment. A large Viking mustache with a short clipped beard would do wonders. Anyone any good at adding that to a existing photo????

    Goyer just screened his newest film "Invisible" and it got a so so review. It sounds a bit better than Trinity but nothing fancy.

    If this guy is indeed Thor (latino review seems to have reported it as well)


    TO ALL THE NAYSAYERS, READ THIS:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rikki_Lee_Travolta

    AND THIS:

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1306840/bio


    Don't let the travolta moniker fool you, the guy is a top theatre actor, and unless they're doing the Ultimate thor (something tells me they aint, so classic thor it is) a pretty boy "cover boy of the month" actor ain't gonna cut it.

    This guy has the acting chops to pull this role off. Thats all that matters. He might not have the build (as of yet) that thor requires, but then Niether did Tom Jane initially for The punisher. And Tom Jane in the end, WAS the punisher by, he was the best thing about that filick.

    I think everyones main worry shouldn't be the casting - it should be David Goyer actually getting the directing gig for this flick. His scripts are only as good as the directors directing them.
    And his track record as a director isn't that great (and thats being nice).

    ^ It's probably Rikki. FYI Tom Jane always had a good build as did Jackman.
