This movie is going to rock the house. I really hope they finish off the casting as brilliantly as they've started it, although Thor is going to be ridiculously difficult to cast. I mean come on...who looks like the Norse God of Thunder? Not many people.
There was a rumour awhile back that the people in charge wanted Triple H to be Thor

The director said he'd leave the film if HHH was cast so i don't think thats happening. Thank god.

I've been hearing lots of rumors about Kevin McKidd as Thor. I know he has confirmed he's contending for the role. Do you guys think it will be/want it to be him?

I love McKidd so I really hope it happens. That's who I've wanted to see from the get-go. This will make me see the Thor movie even more if they do it right.

Jackson Signs Nine-Picture Deal to Play Nick Fury!
Source: The Hollywood Reporter, Variety February 25, 2009

Samuel L. Jackson has buried the hatchet with Marvel Entertainment, making a deal to play the role of Nick Fury in Iron Man 2, and potentially many other films.

Jackson's deal is a long-term commitment to play Fury, the leader of the espionage unit S.H.I.E.L.D. His deal contains an option to play the character in nine future Marvel superhero films, efforts that are expected to include The First Avenger: Captain America, Thor, The Avengers, toplining a possible S.H.I.E.L.D. movie, and potential sequels.

Jackson introduced Fury in the closing moments of Iron Man, when the character asked Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark to join his group.

guess I should say the 7th part of the Harry Potter books because technically it'll be the 8th film?

Joss Whedon to direct? I hope there's some truth to this.

Looks more likely now than ever. I'm cautiously pumped, Joss knows how to handle an ensemble.

I like Joss Whedon a lot. The fact that he's doing with Jon Favereau as executive producer is a great combination and overall makes me comfortable with this. If he can the movie the Avengers version of his run on Astonishing X-Men, I'll be happy.

I hope Whedon sees The Avengers as his chance to do his version of The Incredibles. He's a smart guy too. He knows what he's going into more than anyone.

Looks like Whedon is rewriting the scripts for this and Captain America. And Edgar Wright is still doing the Ant-Man movie. So awesome.
