We get confirmation on one of the latest casting rumor's from Thor director Kenneth Branagh.
When asked how Branagh will be juggling his currant film schedule regarding his upcoming project's The Wallanders and Thor, Branagh had this to say:
Quote:"Well, I'm working currently on Thor for Marvel and we're planning that one. We're having a great time at the moment. We're in intense pre-production," Branagh states. "I shoot Thor in January of next year and because the time of release has been moved, it's allowed me to have a moment in the summer where I can shoot the Wallanders."
Quote:Branagh goes on to say:
Quote:"And, strangely, there's a weird, pleasing connection between the Swedish Wallander and the Nordic Thor. And as I've played a lot of Danish Hamlets, I feel as though my Scandinavian trilogy is forming."
Quote:Branagh also confirmed the casting rumor of his award winning co-star. Tom Hiddleston is being considered for a role in Thor. No word yet on what that role will be. Branagh states: "Tom Hiddleston is a great actor and he, amongst a number of others, has been part of the group we've spoken to and all that's still a work in progress."
Quote:Just don't know anything about Hiddelston - the pictures don't say Thor but they aren't trying to. So....
It's good to get all the updates here, be sure and jump on the one we're all waiting to see..."JPR to play Thor."
Just saw this. Looks like we're not alone.
