I am – Hercules!!
The great Anthony Hopkins, who played Nordic King Hrothgar in 2007's "Beowulf," will embody Odin, Nordic King of Asgard, in Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Marvel Comics’ “Thor.” Hopkins joins Natalie Portman ("V For Vendetta"), who plays Thor’s girl Jane Foster, Tom Hiddelston ("Cranford"), who plays Thor’s ne’er-do-well brother Loki, and Chris Hemsworth (George Kirk in the last "Star Trek"), who plays the wielder of the giant hammer Mjöllnir. Sam Jackson may be back as Nick Fury too. Branagh directs from a screenplay by Mark Protosevich (“Poseidon,” “I Am Legend”) and Zack Stentz & Ashley Miller (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “Fringe”). Filming gets underway in January in anticipation of Paramount's May 20, 2011 release. Find all of Variety’s story on the matter here.
