Nikki Finke reports.
its a good week for thor news
Interesting, another unknown for a major character in this film. I wonder where the "big" names will come in to help sell this film.
Well, I don't know about you, but I'm bookmarking Nikki Finke's page on my favorites.
I'm sure some big names will be cast for minor roles..
Someone like Anthony Hopkins for Odin will probably be announced.
I'm still hoping for Branagh to play Odin.
Branagh will appear in Stan Lee's cameo
Feige has said they're in the process of casting Odin, which wouldn't be necessary if Branagh was going to play him
I'm sure Branagh'll enlist his big name, heavy hitter Shakespeare acting pals for the Gods... As for Hiddleston, yep! I like it... He has the right thing going for him.
Anybody else wondering were they've seen him before?
He's in Wallander with Branagh. Haven't seen it personally, but that probably led to him getting this role
This guy has the look, and if he acted alongside Branagh on stage, then there certainly must be something good about him!
Agree 100%. He couldn't look more perfect. And I'm sure he's good.
Definitely looks right for the part, and has a respectable resumee. My biggest fear is if they try to hard to "joker up" Loki, considering he´s also the trickster kinda vilain. But so far, so good.
Praise the maker, no Josh Hartnett!!!
Can't speak to his acting (by virtue of having no idea who he is and having seen nothing he's done), but he looks the way I would expect Loki to look. Thin, sharp features. Snake-like.
That was genuinely some of the worst fan casting I have ever heard. He's decent enough in certain roles, but I could never see him as Loki.
This guy though... I know nothing of his acting ability, but he's got a good look to him. Physically, he fits the role very well.
Wow, really good choice.
Meh... I am sorry but there are only so many unknowns you can have. I am all for Branagh getting his guys, and I wasn't even a big Hartnett guy... but I expected a name. And he doesn't resemble the character that closely IMO. I don't even like Portman for Sif but you wonder if they will try to look for a name there. They will need a huge supporting cast because as of now this won't get the GP excited one bit.
they might still cast Hartnett.. for a female role
