If you’ve seen the last Star Trek you’ll know this is the dude who plays George Kirk. He was pretty awesome in a five minute role. Beyond that? He’s a nobody. A nobody who’s apparently in the front running of playing Thor in Kenneth Branagh’s movie of the same name.
I really have no comment on the casting choice mainly because I have no comment on the movie. I love the current iteration of Thor in comics, but I have no attachment to his ancient history and all the ruckus with the gods and what not, which from my understanding is what this movie will be focusing on. I also kind of hate Kenneth Branagh, so there’s that against the movie.
But look on the bright side – at least it’s not Triple H.
