Thor may star Robert De Niro and Jude Law

440px-Fandral_HeadAnother day another comic book film rumour – yesterday I posted the rumour Jackie Earle Haley could be playing Sinestro in Green Lantern (Collider spoke to him and he has heard nothing about that) – Now AICN have a rumour about the Kenneth Branagh directed Thor film

According to actor, Matthias Schweighöfer, who you may have seen in VALKYRIE or RED BARON – in an article in the German edition of Gentlemen’s Quarterly aka GQ, he states that he’s in the running for a role in Branagh’s THOR, but he also mentions that Jude Law and Robert DeNiro have joined the cast.

Now, I don’t doubt that they have, they’re very much the sort of Actor I would expect from a Kenneth Branagh helmed THOR film, I’m just absolutely flummoxed to think who they are playing.

Robert De Niro worked with Brannagh on the not very good Frankenstein and I am sure Law must have worked with Brannagh at some point.

As AICN say what characters could they be playing though. Chris Hemsworth is Thor, Tom Hiddleston is Loki, Jaime Alexander is Sif, Colm Feore is playing a villain, Brian Blessed is rumoured to be Odin (although I could see De Niro in that role as well, Stellan Skarsgard is also in it as is Natalie Portman as Jane Foster.

Going from what I know of the Thor comic I think, if the rumour is true, that Jude Law could play the dashing warrior, Fandral, of the Warriors Three (that’s him above). De Niro though I am just not sure.

What do you think of the rumour and who could they be playing?
