Thor movie not moving forward
Posted by JPX
From cinemablend, Unlike the little known Ant-Man, who is soon to have his own movie, I have actually heard of Thor. He’s a Marvel comic book superhero who carries a big hammer and looks like Dolph Lundgren with Fabio’s hair. In the future, we may, repeat "may", see him on the big screen, battling his enemies, whoever they may be.
As we noted back in August 2007, Matthew Vaughn of Stardust fame is trying to get a Thor movie off the ground. He’s still trying. According to comments he made to Empire Online, Marvel hasn’t given him the green light to move forward, yet. “We’re in a holding pattern at the moment,” he said. ”It’s up to Marvel, they have to decide if they want to make the movie and then we take it from there.”
Josh Tyler guessed way back in August that one reason Marvel might not be moving forward is no one cares about a Thor movie. Even though I’ve heard of him and not Ant-Man, the Ant-Man movie still sounds more interesting. Vaughn wants to go with his own Brandon Routh to play the title character. “Well, the main role is going to be played by someone totally unknown, it can’t be a star, it’s got to be someone totally unknown.” I don’t see why it can’t be a star, but I also don’t see George Clooney playing the part, either, so maybe an unknown is the way to go. Either way, it sounds like all you Thor fans out there are going to have to wait a bit to see the big guy on-screen.
