Marvel Studios and director Kenneth Branagh have cast Chris Hemsworth (George Kirk in Star Trek) as the lead character in next summer’s big-screen adaptation of the comic book character Thor. Hemworth will also play the character in Summer 2012’s The Avengers.
The Australian actor can next be seen in the Joss Whedon-written/Drew Goddard-directed horror film Cabin in the Woods.
Another casting decision for the film has also been made. DHD reports that relative unknown Tom Hiddleston has been cast as Loki in the film. More details at DHD.
