Now Loki, Thor's enemy, has been cast:

The cast for "Thor" is starting to fall into place this week, with Tom Hiddleston tapped to play Loki, the mischievous foe of the god of thunder.

Announcement of the up-and-coming British thesp follows Marvel Studios' recent decision to make Chris Hemsworth, currently seen in "Star Trek," its hammer-wielding superhero.

Nicknamed the god of lies and mischief, Loki uses his talents at sorcery to try to kill Thor, his more powerful brother, whom he resents.

Kenneth Branagh, who is prepping to direct "Thor" for a May 20, 2011, release, already had a relationship with Hiddleston, having co-starred with the actor in the BBC miniseries "Wallander." The two were in a London stage production of "Ivanov." Hiddleston also played Winston Churchill's son in HBO's "The Gathering Storm."

Mark Protosevich, Ashley Miller and Zak Stentz penned the script for "Thor."

After hiring bigger names for "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk," Marvel's turned to virtual unknowns for "Thor," a superhero based around Norse mythology.

Marvel says the idea is to help auds ease into the property and get to know the character; an established actor would be a distraction. Successful launch of "Thor" is key for Marvel, considering the character is part of the Avengers (also made up of Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk and Captain America), whom the company wants to team up in a pic planned for 2012.

I so wanted to see Alexander Skarsgard for the role but what the heck, I have faith in Branagh to bring out the Thor inside Captain Kirk's father.

I'm interested, but at this point, casting news aren't exactly awesome.

Once production starts, count me in :P

If you read his appreciation thread, you would know, Icey... :whistle:

Imo, Alexander Skarsgård was the perfect Thor. As a real Scandinavian, he has the physique and presence, but he lost against Chris Hemsworth, and nothing against the guy, but I think he looks too young and pretty. :|

Now his father, Stellan Skarsgård, is cast. Oh, well... the irony! :roll:

I wonder who he will play.

As far as Alexander being Thor....I could definitely see it, but Thor is supposed to be "young and pretty" :P but kick ass at the same time.

In the comics, Thor doesn't look that pretty to me, but rough and masculine. I see Thor more like this:

Rather than this:

I suppose I'm biased because I'm an Alexander Skarsgård fan. :P Supposedly, they said they would consider him for other heroes. And to add more irony here...
Spoiler (Click to reveal/hide)
it's rumored Captain America is an option.


Of course, it's great they cast Stellan. He's a great actor and really works for these kind of films. In 'Arthur' he was pretty badass and scary. I hope he's a baddie. :thumbsup:

No offense, but he won't be Captain America.

If someone who is nor American gets the role, Fanboys will go crazy (sad, I know, but it's true)

That's why I say it's pretty ironic, Ice. He doesn't get Thor, but is rumoured for Captain America.

Of course, he already played a sort of real American hero in Generation Kill, but being honest with you, even though he has said he would love to play whatever comic hero role, I prefer he stays away from that one.

Also, I think they want whoever plays Captain America to anchor the Avengers movie. Not sure why Robert Downey Jr. can't (for those that don't know, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America, will lead to an Avengers movie, with all 3 of them) but I think they want him as a supporting role. So whoever they pick has to be able to anchor 2 or 3 movies, I know this is off topic and belongs in the Captain America or Avengers thread, but I'm saying that I would like to see Alexander involved somehow, but I don't think it is looking good at the moment :(
