Over the weekend, the Internet was abuzz with rumors that Jude Law and Robert DeNiro would be joining the cast of Kenneth Branagh's Thor, but GossipCop claims that a rep for Law has denied the casting, calling the rumors "not true." The report also found the DeNiro casting dubious as well.
What isn't a rumor is that Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!, The History Boys) is up for a part in the comic book movie. In an interview with Movieline, Cooper was caught with some Thor script pages, specifically for the role of Fandral, one of a trio of Thor's friends called the Warriors Three. Once caught with what Cooper called "confidential pages" of the Thor script, Cooper was quick to say that his casting was "absolutely not" finalized.
So, at this point, all that's finalized is Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Natalie Portman as Thor's human love interest, Jane Foster. Posted 10.21.09 by Ryan
