Just because someone is a good actor, doesn't mean they're right for a part. Good acting doesn't automatically rule out everything else about the character they're portraying. Some characters can be whatever race. A black Harvey Dent? Fine (and turned out pretty well). A black Norse god? No, not so much. I don't anyone really disputes his acting ability, they have issue that he isn't right for the role. That's the bottom line. Look back at the comics, has any of the Norse gods ever been anything but white? No, no they haven't. And I seriously doubt people would be fine with it if he had cast a black actor as Thor.


The Norse gods also aren't real.

But this is the film about Norse Gods being aliens right? Does it really matter?

I have a feeling this thread will enter into Midsommer territory without too much trouble [sm=whistle.gif]
