Via Attackerlady, Nikki Finke reports that the guy who plays Captain Kirk’s father in the new Star Trek is going to play the Mighty Thor. He’s Australian, this Chris Hemsworth is, but he looks Nordic enough. If I were writing the movie, I’d use a ton of the Ultimate Thor mythology, where he’s basically a schizophrenic eco-cult leader and DFH who may or may not be the actual Odinnson. Either that or some classic Walter Simonson-era Thor material, where Asgard is pretty cosmic and you’ve got aliens like Beta Ray Bill showing up.
