Channing Tatum comments on Thor casting April 7th, 2009

Chan­ning Tatum (G.I. Joe) was a name often men­tioned as a poten­tial Thor player, how­ever, he has recently con­firmed that he is no longer in the running:

“I think they’re look­ing for some­one more Nordic-looking,” Tatum told MTV News dur­ing a press event for his new film, “Fight­ing.” How­ever, Tatum con­firmed that he had indeed been inter­ested in the part, and even met with direc­tor Ken­neth Branagh about don­ning the golden locks and tot­ing the myth­i­cal hammer.

We’re still left wait­ing for that key cast­ing deci­sion. Still in the run­ning, and pre­sumed to be at the top of the list are:

Char­lie Hun­nam
Tom Hid­dle­ston
Alexan­dar Skars­gard
Liam Hemsworth
Joel Kinnaman.

Still in the air are the rumors that Josh Hart­nett may play vil­lain Loki and that Natalie Port­man will have some involve­ment in a key female role.
