More Gods...



Marvel keeps adding to the cast of their new "Thor" feature...

The production has cast Jaimie Alexander as Sif, an Asgardian warrior and former lover of Thor, while Colm Feore will play a secondary villain under Tom Hiddleston, who will play Loki.

I truly hope that they've retained most of the script I read. I know that part of this one is set in the modern day world, which worries me. The original was very faithful, following closely to Walt Simonson's run on the character, but being a Norse myth, it set the events on Earth in the ancient world of the Vikings and it was truly epic. Here's crossing fingers and wishing for the best. Mark Protosevich seems to have bad luck with great scripts. Zack Stentz will hopefully enhance and not take away from the brilliance of Protosevish's script. Unlike "I am Legend," which went from great to average under the guidance of Akiva Goldsman.

Time will tell...

The Thor script was great, I really agree with you Honor, let's all pray to the gods that they don't f*** this one up.

This will suck.

Kenneth Brannagh was an interesting choice for director. I'm confident he's going to do a good job with it, what with the movies under his belt. Can't wait!

See, I want to be one of the guys with access to these scripts in advance. How do I get on that list!?

Somehow "Disney" and "Thor" just don't sound right.

It will be distributed by Paramount, but since the Walt Disney Company owns/will own Marvel by the end of the year, it's technically a Disney film...

At least it's a Disney property. But if it's a success, then the sequel would be under the Disney name as the distribution deal that Paramount has is up after five films. A sequel to the god of thunder wouldn't be part of that agreement (Iron Man 2, Captain America, Thor, Avengers, + one more).

As for Disney and Thor not going together? I'm sure in the early 70's after Warner Bros. bought National Periodicals aka: DC Comics it struck some as weird. Thirty years later and it's hard not to imagine Warner without the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel.

Remember, Iger's looking at this from the loooooooong perspective...
