Anthony Hopkins is Odin in "Thor"

Posted: October 30th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Anthony Hopkins is Odin in "Thor"Submit Comment
Back in June we reported that British actor Brian Blessed, best know for starring as The King of The Hawk Men in "Flash Gordon," has been cast as Odin in the upcoming "Thor" movie.

Now comes word from both THR and Variety that Blessed is out and Anthony Hopkins is currently in talks for the role. For those not familiar with the comic books, Odin is the king of Asgard and the father of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and his evil half-brother Loki (Tom Hiddelston).

In addition, the sites have confirmed that Natalie Portman will play Jane Foster, Thor's love interest, and that production is set to get going in January.

Plot: The story sees the god of thunder Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions re-ignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

For a moment there, this story got me thinking about "Alexander"! That's one scary f*cking thought!!!

"For those not familiar with the comic books", the story of odin and thor etc. is more than a comic book... its nordic mythology/religion.

it would be so effin epic if they used Amon Amarth for the soundtrack :)

I forget what the movie was called but Hopkins and Alec Baldwin were stuck in the woods and Hopkins was rocking a beard. That plus the eye patch/one eye? Awesome! And Jane Foster is the love interest of Donald Blake, not Thor. Thor's woman is Lady Sif.

Yea he seems perfect for some reason. I feel like I've seen him in a role think this before?

Beawulfff not exactly the same
Peter Parker writes:

"Alexander"!!! That's were he was before that reminds me of this. Also epic. Also big names on the cast. But we all know how that went... 3 hours long gayfest!
Ranger writes:
on October 30th, 2009 at 2:38:13 PM

@acslaterson - the movie was called 'The Edge' (originally named 'The Bookworm' while they were filming it).
Ranger writes:
on October 30th, 2009 at 2:39:37 PM

And you're right... "Jane Foster is the love interest of Donald Blake, not Thor. Thor's woman is Lady Sif."

I noticed that inaccuracy in the article as well.

@Ranger, thanks man. I was feeling lazy when I woke up and didn't feel like looking it up on Wiki, haha.

@Odin f*ck yes. Amon Amarth rip

@acslaterson - screw Wiki my friend. IMDB.com is the only way to go.

wow. This movie is really shaping up to be a pleasant surprise

Hopkins is God!! And I would actually prefer worshipping him every Sunday. The Edge rocked, he was bloody brilliant in Instinct (an underrated movie, probably due to Cuba Gooding Jr.). As for Portman, awwwahhh, drool, drool.
Ranger writes:
on October 30th, 2009 at 9:09:02 PM

'Hopkins' and 'brilliant' in the same post is redundant my friend.
rocketman writes:
on October 31st, 2009 at 8:00:28 AM

Hopkins doesn't act he just says the lines,he admitted it himself.Advice he got off a famous US screen ledgend..once you know this watch his recent performances and you see that,lazy bugger.

The perfect actor for the Odin lole is John Rhys-Davies (Gimli from LOTR)!He is 6'1',right age and physique,right voice and a very good actor!
As for Jane Foster,she was also thor's beloved.He even convince Odin to make her immortal so he could marrie her.But when she became a godess,she couldn't handle the feeling so she prefer to live as a mortal!
