Tom Hiddleston will play Loki in Marvel’s production of Thor, the studio announced Monday. Hiddleston has previously worked with Thor director Kenneth Branagh (see “Branagh on Thor Movie”) in the London production of Chekhov’s Ivanov; they also starred together in the BBC series Wallander.

Hiddleston was nominated twice for the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Newcomer in 2008, for his roles in Othello and Cymbeline; he won for Cymbeline. Hiddleston also played Winston Churchill’s son in HBO’s The Gathering Storm.

Can't believe Marvel is actually making Thor... I don't see how this will work. It's kinda like a Wonder Woman movie, too much mythology to rake in the big bucks

They're doing a Thor movie, because Thor will be in the avengers movie they're releasing in 2011. (I think its 2011 now.)

Ah I forgot about the avengers movie... Man, DC is so behind.

I still dont think the Thor movie will be a success or even a Captain America movie. But an Avengers movie should be awesome, if they have a competent badguy.

I wouldn't be surprised if the first avengers movie ends up being the avengers vs an out of control Hulk. :nod:

If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

Anthony Hopkins has been cast to play Odin in Marvel’s production of Thor, according to the Hollywood trades. Several other cast members have previously been announced for the Kenneth Branagh film, including Jaimie Alexander and Colm Feore, Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), and Chris Hemsworth (Thor).

Sweet. If they put him in a helmet, a huge coat and put an eye patch on him, I could see him pulling it off. :nod:

      Hell yes. Daredevil season 2 was the entire Punisher origin story and in that season netflix pulled off some of the most realistic gun fights I've seen in any movie / tv series. Sure movies have gun fights all the time, but for assault weapons, shotguns, etc. its all special effects and nothing physical. In daredevil season 2 it felt like they were literally shooting guns everywhere and each individual bullet hole was shown being created in the background as it happened. As long as the punisher series has that much detail this will be amazing. It better have that much detail because netflix needs another strong marvel series. Iron Fist and Defenders were horrible compared to their predecessors.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.

      This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf.
      I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.
