I mean sure, it could be the last step Marvel has towards doing a Silver Surfer film, but let's face it, Marvel has been on a film kick lately yet some of their big hitters like Cap & Thor don't seem to have any development yet. Is a Thor film on the horizon?

Is anything being done with it at the moment? The short answer is not right now, but Avi Arad has stated that Thor is a movie he has planned. So maybe by the end of this year you'll have a better idea about the plans for this movie. Look at how quick they got around to getting the Punisher rolling, I have no doubt we'll be hearing about Thor in the near future.

Psh, I think that there will be no argument when i say that the only man who can rightly play Thor MUST be the man who played Thor in the "Incredible Hulk" TV series! C'mon, i can't see anybody else playing him! hehehehehehehehe :D

I think Fabio would make a wonderful Thor. His long flowing blonde hair...his muscular chest...and his accent....He is soooo dreamy. ;) :D

Seriously...how many super hero movies do they need to make? Hopefully they will quit before the Wonder Twins get their own film.

Have you seen the short insert cartoons on Cartoon Network, "The NEW Adventures of the Wonder Twins", where the twins learn nothing and never save the day? I'd see a movie like that for them. :D


And I'm sorry, but claiming that Hulk tv-movie is acceptable as a Mighty Thor film is like claiming the Nick Fury tv-movie is all we need of the Marvel universe or that "Birds of Prey" was an ample Batman series. ;)


Thor needs a real movie! Way more than Namor/Aquaman or Halle Berry in the title role of "Catwoman" or the Thing's own spin-off series. Then again, I think Silver Surfer would make a very interesting TV show if done right, but there's nobody out there capable of such a show and nearly no audience to watch it.

Don't forget the Jessica Simpson movie! She's reportedly going to be a major Marvel heroine and she was quoted as saying " I can only tell you it's definitely NOT Wonder Woman..." :rolleyes: Save us all. I hope it's Dazzler with rhinestone rollerskates and
all! ;)
What's with that Catwoman movie anyway? The only thing they kept about the character was the title? What's the friggin' point?

My mom loves "Adventures in Babysitting", so we bought it on DVD - I forgot how much of a jerk "Thor" is in that film.

They actually don't need to make any, but neither do they need to make another cowboy, cop, sci-fi, horror, historical drama, documentary, romantic comedy, etcetera, etcetera movie. Haven't they all been done to death by now? ;) Of course, things might well get pretty boring if that ever happened so I'll take as many super hero movies as I can get.

I'd have to go with Ralph Moeller (tv's Conan/ Hagen from Gladiator) as my choice for Thor at the moment. I think he'd do a pretty good job with the right direction. Plus, I can't think of anyone else that'd be better at the moment.

How sucky would that be if her "major Marvel heroine" actually was Wonder Woman? Someone should let her know that few of us who are fans of the genre actually thought that was the "Marvel" character she was playing. Especially seeing as how Wonder Woman isn't even a Marvel character...

I'd like to see Jessica Simpson as Emma Frost - as long as she has no speaking parts and models some nice, tiny white outfits. Heck, I'd go twice.....

HEY! This is the Thor thread, maybe she's the Enchantress!

My pick for Thor would have to be (physical appearance only) the same guy who played Sabretooth in X1. Tyler Mane or whatever? That's your guy. Too bad we'll likely get Owen Nelson....

Don't know what the heck I was thinking of on that one. Oh wait, Luke and Owen are brothers right? I used to have a client named Luke Nelson. Now I get it.

Good to see that we agree on Moeller as Thor, but I'm actually glad you jnxed Michael Wincott as Punisher. Don't get me wrong, I loves me some Michael Wincott (the dude is awesome and wicked scary!), but he's just not the Punisher I know. His coolest aspect is his freaky voice, but the Punisher I've known has always been a man of few words and I'm afraid Mr. Wincott woul;d be wasted.

He'd have been a terribly cool Jigsaw, though!;)

Dusting this thread off as it was announced today that Kenneth Brannagh is in negotiations to direct THOR!

From Variety (http://www.superherohype.com/news/topnews.php?id=7686):


Kenneth Branagh is negotiating to direct "Thor," the next Marvel Comics property that will be turned into a live-action film by Marvel Studios. Pic will be released in 2010.
Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige's choice of Branagh is surprising, as Branagh hasn't really directed an action-heavy film since his debut on "Henry V," a bloody telling of the British king's conquest of France.

Branagh is the latest in a string of directors -- such as Jon Favreau ("Iron Man"), Christopher Nolan (the Batman franchise) and Gavin Hood ("X-Men Origins: Wolverine") -- with arthouse roots taking on big-budget comicbook fare.

Marvel will set a distributor for "Thor" shortly.

"Thor" comicbook adaptation, penned by Mark Protosevich, follows disabled medical student Donald Blake, who has an alter ego as the hammer-wielding Norse god Thor.

Marvel will self-finance the film via its $500 million credit facility through Merrill Lynch. Marvel used that coin to fund both "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk" and will do the same for the "Iron Man" sequel that has director Favreau and star Robert Downey Jr. returning.

The "Thor" negotiations come during a resurgence for Branagh. He's currently drawing raves on the London stage in the title role of "Ivanov," and he'll next be seen acting in the Richard Curtis-directed "The Boat That Rocked" and the Bryan Singer-helmed "Valkyrie."

Branagh is repped by Endeavor and manager Judy Hofflund.

Should prove to be interesting. I've always been a fan of his Shakespeare film work as it's always very spot on; I still need to forgive him for destroying Shelley's Frankenstein though. hehehe :thumbsup:

I'm cautiously optimistic, because this is one of those characters that will be very easy to screw up. Hopefully, they don't try to "modernize" Thor's look, because that's always seemed to fail in the comic books.

I'll reserve judgement until I see some actual images of the Thor costume.

Paul Michael Levesque should play Thor. He would make Thor the epitome of two fisted bad-a$$ery that he is. Plus he's familiar with the use of a hammer...

Looks like it's now official that Branagh is helming the project.

Branagh Clears Schedule To Take On Thor

Shakespearean actor KENNETH BRANAGH has stepped down as director of upcoming West End play HAMLET to take on the big-screen adaptation of Marvel comic THOR.

The English star, who helmed and starred in the 1996 version of Shakespeare's Hamlet, was due to direct Jude Law in a Donmar Warehouse production of the tragedy at London's Wyndham's Theatre. But he's had to withdraw from the project after reaching the final stages of negotiations with Marvel bosses over the Thor movie, due for release in 2010.

Branagh will be replaced by Michael Grandage, the artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse, which is currently in the middle of its year-long residency at the Wyndham's Theatre. Grandage says, "We have arrived at this arrangement very amicably." And Law is also in support of the production change. He adds, "I feel privileged to be part of the Donmar West End season and to be directed by the company's artistic director Michael Grandage. "It was Ken who brought me to this project. With his support and guidance, as one of the greatest Hamlets of all time, and with Michael directing, I can't imagine a better scenario for me, as an actor, to undertake the role."

Hamlet is due to begin previews at the end of May (09).

Well, that would be worse, but not by much. I think Thor should look like he stepped off the set of Lord of the Rings and look very outdated and low-tech.

I'm betting that the filmmakers were worried that he wouldn't mesh well with Iron Man if he wasn't all futuristic and shiny looking. But that's the whole point of the Avengers, you take a bunch of characters that don't mesh together and you mesh them together. It's people who have absolutely nothing in common with each other all fighting for the common good.

Technically the Power Rangers version of Thor does look outdated and low-tech if you want to get picky about it. lol The actor may have also stepped off the set of Lord of the Rings for all that I know, both are/were filmed in New Zealand (in fact the actor who portrays the butler from that season of Power Rangers, David Weatherley, was in Lord of the Rings). :D
