The Avengers EDIT:- First Movie in history to make $200 Million in opening weekend

May 13 2008


Are Marvel trying to one up themselves by casting an even bigger name than Robert Downey Jr ("Iron Man") for their next super-jaunt?

Sounds like it.

According to Latino Review, Brad Pitt is the favourite to play the Thunder God "Thor" in the upcoming superhero flick of the same name.

No doubt Pitt could do it (he's a damn good actor), but they might just want to go a tad bit younger for this one. Pitt circa 1990, with that clean skin and long mane of hair, could've done it - but the Pitt of 2008? Slightly doubtful.

After all, Downey Jr played Iron Man, and Edward Norton's playing the Hulk; they're obviously going for big guns.

I love Pitt, but he's too tiny to be the Norse God of Thunder

Sure he's ripped, but he doen't quite have a Viking's physique

Agreed. However, he could surprise you; edward norton is skinny, but Derek Vineyard from American History X was a fucking monster. 30 lbs of muscle for that role...



i alos never would have imagined robert downey Jr playing tony stark, but here we are, and by all accounts he did an excellent job (i will have first hand details next monday :))

Why not, he was He-Man. And the punisher.

PLus, he has amazing range as an actor, he has played everything from a rough and tumble cop to a rough and tumble special forces guy.

I agree Brad Pitt is too small.... Maybe they'll have him stand on a box or something.

I've heard rumors of Triple H being up for the part and although his acting is a giant question mark he does have the look...
