Ah, the loveliness of Hollywood gossip and rumors…
Earlier this week, Ain’t It Cool News picked up on a story from the German edition of GQ where Matthias Schweighöfer (Valkyrie) was interviewed and revealed that he was in the running for a role in Thor. The most interesting part of the story is that Matthias also said Robert De Niro and Jude Law had already been cast – something no one had heard about up until that point, not even rumored about.
Now comes reports from some sites saying that it’s all false. What to believe?
The folks at the rumor-control website, Gossip Cop, apparently got in touch with a representative of Jude Law who said there’s no truth to his involvement with the upcoming Marvel Studios production of Thor. They also claim that after making some calls, De Niro is not involved at all.
My thoughts: Don’t jump one way or another – wait until we hear something official, there’s more casting still to come and hearing the other day Dominic Cooper was reading for the role of Fandral of “The Warrior’s Three.” Since it seems those three characters are in the flick, we need three more actors to join the growing-in-awesomeness cast.
What do you think about De Niro and Law’s possible involvement and who do you think should be cast as Fandral, Hogun and Volstagg?
