Thor – Anthony hopkins talks language. No Thou for Thor. I say thee nay!

While bigging up The Wolf Man, Anthony Hopkins chatted to MTV about the new Marvel film Thor. Hopkins plays Odin, Father of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and so sports a rather fetching white beard.
“It’s for ‘Thor’,” he said of the beard. “It has a great director in Kenneth Branagh. So, I’m lucky. In the past year I’ve worked with [‘Wolfman’] filmmaker Joe Johnston, Woody Allen and Ken Branagh.”
“It’s a superhero movie, but with a bit of Shakespeare thrown in,” revealed Hopkins. “It’s a big, big broad thing. This is a bit of a Shakespeare movie as well, on a big scope.”
Yet will it be like the comic and have the odd Shakespearean “Thee,” and “Thou” ?
“No, not in this,” he said of the blockbuster. “It’s all modern language.”
