Brad Pitt as Thor: What Do You Think?

222 Comments

Forget for one moment that Marvel’s announced “Thor” movie no longer has a director, or even a star except a rumor about Brad Pitt being offered the role. What it does have is a sorta finished script by Mark Protosevic (“I am Legend”). Now forget all that stuff, and just concentrate on this question: Rumor has Marvel pursuing Brad Pitt to play the role of the Asgardian God of Thunder, Thor. What do you think about this potential casting?

For it, against it, don’t care?

And if not Brad Pitt as Thor, then who?

    I think HHH would a great Thor he has the size and the long hair, he would be the best choice.

    • nonamus

      dude, that’s what I said! HHH is badass!

    • oscar

      Triple H would be the perfect person to play Thor he has the size and has already proven himelf in the ring as King of Kings .

        Yo thats Whats Up He Needs that and He Would Rock as thor he already looks like thor

    • Skaman

      I thought that too. So I TOTALLY agree, but my only question is: Will he be a good enough actor to pull it off?

    • john a martin

      I totally agree
      brad doesn’t have the frame to carry the bulk needed to be believable

      • philkay

        if he wanted to he could get buff again…

        if anyone remembers brad pitt when he was younger, he was huge!

    I think Thomas Jane would make a good Thor.

    • eric

      Jane played a great punisher but the only reasoning i could even begin to imagine you’d have for suggesting him is that he’s a good actor, he has no other thor-like traits. Brad Pitt would be amazing as thor.

    Nice choice but far too expensive. Better use a Nobody or Karl Urban (pathfinder), at least the studio can afford to keep him under contract for 2 or more sequels and an Avenger-movie.

    Since I saw this I have been thinking of actors to play the role. The first actor I thought would be Sean Bean, the actor who played Boromir in the lord of the rings. Another choice would be the actor who played Boromir’s brother. His role in “300″ identified himself as a strong bid for a role of such a level. I as well thought Paul Levesque, HHH, was a good choice. One of the three I believe would be the best physical fit for Thor, Sean Bean being #1. Brad Pitt is expensive and would be a better fit for a smaller Marvel Superhero.

      I AGREE SEAN BEAN WOULD MAKE A PERFECT THOR. HE HAS THE LOOKS FOR THIS ROLE. BRAD PITT WOULD BE BETTER OFF BEING CAPTAIN AMERICAN, IT IS FOR BELIEVABLE. ARE YOU NUTS PEOPLE TRIPPLE H, WE NEED REAL ACTORS OR THIS MOVIE WILL BE A FLOP.
