I’m taken aback by the casting direction that Kenneth Branagh has taken with his film version of Marvel Comics’ Thor — it might just be my unfamiliarity with the subject material, but really? The 40-Year-Old Virgin’s Kat Dennings in a tale of Asgard’s invasion of Earth?
That’s not to say I’m disappointed or unexcited. In fact, Branagh has fleshed out an incredibly interesting cast featuring Star Trek’s Chris Hemsworth as Thor, alongside Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard and Ray Stevenson.
The latest addition to the cast of Thor is Rene Russo, who will be playing Frigga, the mother of Thor. Russo has been sort of non-existent for the past few years, so it’s good to see her stepping behind one of Marvel’s upcoming centerpiece films.
