Anthony Hopkins to Play Odin in Kenneth Branagh's Thor!

Anthony Hopkins / Odin

Apparently Odin, Thor's father, will be played by none other than Anthony Hopkins in Marvel's upcoming Thor movie. THR's Heat Vision Blog reports that Hopkins is "in negotiations" to play the Norse god and ruler of Asgard in the adaptation being directed by Kenneth Branagh. We already know that the cast also includes Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder Thor, Tom Hiddleston as his evil brother Loki, Natalie Portman, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, and apparently Robert De Niro and Jude Law. Talk about a very impressive cast!

Score. Let's just hope he doesn't just play Hannibal Lecter. I feel like Hopkins can turn in great performances and weak ones. Certainly looks the part though. Should be quite fun.
