If you weren’t excited about the cast of Kenneth Branagh's "Thor" movie so far, which includes Chris Hemsworth as the title character, Tom Hiddleston as his nemesis, Natalie Portman, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore and possibly Brian Blessed as Odin, then you might be more excited now with the following two names possibly added to the cast.
Robert De Niro and Jude Law have reportedly joined the cast.
Ain't It Cool News says it received a tip-off about an interview with actor Matthias Schweighofer in the November edition of GQ magazine in Germany.
In it, the 28-year-old actor apparently says he is in the running for a part in "Thor" and reveals that De Niro and Law have already been cast in the film, which is set for release in May 2011.
At present, this is all unconfirmed and their roles are unspecified. The article is not on the Web site for German GQ, nor is it mentioned in the media interviews section on Matthias Schweighofer's official Web site.
Schweighofer starred with Branagh in Bryan Singer's "Valkyrie." De Niro was in the Branagh-directed "Frankenstein," Law in Branagh's "Sleuth."
