Same here!

I love Brian Blessed, he is a national treasure and would've been great as Odin - especially in the shouty bits, but let's face it - Hopkins is an awesome actor and would bring more gravitas to the role of Odin than Brian Blessed would have. I see this as good news!


I feel like i'm Han Solo, your Chewie and she's Ben Kenobi - and we're in that FUCKED UP bar!!

Nah, I like Hopkins, but I'd rather have Blessed. I suppose there's a bit more "naturalism" to Hopkins' performances, which might make the high fantasy elements an easier sell. Funnily enough, though, it was Hopkins I pictured as Mr Wednesday when I read American Gods, so I guess he does have something Odin-ish about him.

made up if it's true. wasn't too keen on blessed being odin, although he does look the part, i wouldn't be able to put up with everyone shouting "THOR'S ALIIIIIVE?!" all the time.

They MUST get him in there somewhere. Still could be Odin if Hopkins falls through I guess. With Hopkins it's all about the paycheque, so we'll see if Marvel can stump up enough moolah or if they'll try and make it a long distance deal like Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson's.

For all the people saying Brian Blessed would be a better Odin than Anthony Hopkins, I disagree. Marvel's Odin brings with him an intense, world-weary gravitas, better suited to Hopkins than the theatrical Blessed. Blessed's booming bluster is a much better fit for Volstagg of the Warriors Three, if they want to give him a role in the movie.

i would like to see blessed tackle the voluminous one, but i'm just not sure hopkins is the best fit for odin. i'm happy to wait and see what brannagh produces right enough

Would have liked to have seen Blessed as Odin.....but still - Hopkins is no slouch when it comes to father/mentor type roles. Remember the first Zorro movie? Hopkins anchored the entire film with a seriousness and believable gravitas that I think this Thor movie will need. The cast is shaping up quite nicely...and they start shooting early next year - so I still have faith.....
