Kevin McKidd For Thor?


Over the last month there have been rumours of Rome and Journeyman actor Kevin McKidd being the front runner for the part of the Mjolnir wielding Thunder-God "Thor" in the 2010 movie.
McKidd's agents have indeed been talking to Marvel studios about the Kenneth Branagh directed movie but it seems the execs are actually looking for a younger actor for the title role. Someone closer to 20 years old (which worries the hell out of me when you look at the bigger picture for Avengers in 2011 next to actors like Robert Downey Jr, Edward Norton and whoever plays Captain America).

Kevin may still be cast in the movie as there's an older role that he's still under consideration for, but then again I don't think he would be too far off as the title role and it just seems the studio might be aiming for a slightly younger audience this time round and maybe an older one for Captain America... By the time Avengers does hit they'll have a huge audience base with a varied age range that'll hopefully go see it.

Kenneth Branagh recently broke the silence on directing Thor too."I am directing “Thor” or “The Mighty Thor’ as you might like to call it,” he said with a smile before clarifying what the title of the film will be. “I think it will be ‘Thor’.”
When asked what the appeal is with this movie Kenneth replied: “To work on a story about one of the immortals, Gods, extraordinary beings, inter-dimensional creatures,” he enthused.
He continued excitedly, “There’s science fiction and science fact and fantasy all woven into one. It’s based on Norse legends which Marvel sort of raided in a brilliant way.

Now it's just a matter of time before we hear who will actually play Thor...
