Thor - Finally Cast!


Well well well... After an agonising wait (for me at least, being the huge Marvel fan I am) Kenneth Branagh's Thor has finally found it's lead actor.

Chris Hemsworth has snatched the role from the likes of Kevin McKidd, Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hiddleston, WWE's Triple-H (what?) and Alexander SkarsgÄrd, which will see him playing the Norse God of Thunder and future Avenger in the 2011 movie. The news was released HERE yesterday on 'deadlinehollywooddaily'.

Many will be unfamiliar with Hemsworth's work but if you watched the new Star Trek movie, and I have no doubt you have by now, you'll have seen him in the fantastic, action packed and quite emotional opening sequence as George Kirk...
Others will know him for his 171 episode role as Kym Hyde on Home and Away, the Australian soap that's been going for as long as I can remember. He'll also be starring in Joss Whedon's 2010 movie 'Cabin in the Woods'.

The buzz online has so far been positive and I have to say that I'm happy about this casting too. I could have even see him as Captain America, but then I think that the casting for that will have a bigger star and not a relative unknown... And also an American!

One little problem so far with this news is that Chris has also been cast in the remake of 'Red Dawn' which is set for release in 2010, so the question is "is this report a mistake or can Chris get both movies made in time?". We'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if Marvel officially announce his casting.

If it's true; congratulations Chris - Do us proud!
