From Today's News... (http://www.mania.com/55933.html)
A few weeks ago, Robert Sanchez over at IESB.net passed along the news that actor Kevin McKidd(Hbo's Rome) was in consideration to star in Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of THOR. So, are the rumors true? Technically, yes, but perhaps not as the Norse God himself. In a conference for his upcoming NBC show, Journeyman, he enlightened the press on the rumors. One of the details he passes along is the age-bracket of the leading character which perhaps takes him out of the running...
"It's semi true, I didn't know about it either until I heard the rumors and I called my agent and he went, yeah, yeah, we've been talking to them about it. But the last I heard from my agent, they're talking that they want to go for somebody much younger, a 19/20-year-old, for that role. So they're re-conceptualizing it as we speak."
"I think there's the other main male character in that movie that I'm in consideration for, but, certainly by no means it's not in the bag or anything and, to be honest, until I read a script I really don’t know. I haven't really had a look at a script. This is all still just information that's coming in. So, you know, it could be fun, but it just depends on what's on the page. I think it all starts and finishes with the quality of the script."
THOR hits theaters everywhere summer 2009.

Thor is one of several Marvel films coming, just about ALL of them looking like they have it going on. Beats to hell their previous HIT MISS MISS HIT MISS HIT MISS MISS pattern they previously had.
Will FF2 be the last bit of Marvel suckage for awhile?
