Charlie Hunnam (TVs “Sons of Anarchy”) tells IGN Movies that he’s indeed in the running to play hammer-swinging medical student, Donald Blake – better known as ‘Thor’.
Granted British actor Hunnam (who some may remember from the series “Undeclared”) has only had the one screen test so far- but it did involve trying on the blonde superhero’s iconic duds. Marvel wouldn’t be wasting times and, er, tape, on someone they weren’t seriously considering.
Previous reports suggested the frontrunner for the role of Thor was “True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard. Talking to E Online though, Skarsgard (despite being seen lunching with director Branagh earlier this year) said he doesn’t think he’ll get the gig.
Whoever gets the gig will be tied to doing “The Avengers” film too.
