Thor movie update

I originally intended to keep updating about the Thor film but never really did beyond naming the actors who play Odin, Loki, and Thor.

In a move I can't say I support Anthony Hopkins is cast as Odin instead of Brian Blessed.
Other casting:
Stuart Townsend as Fandral The Dashing
Ray Stevenson as Volstagg the Valiant
Tadanobu Asano as Hogun
Idris Elba as Heimdall
(I'm sorry... If that is for real, it is ridiculous. Elba, uh, doesn't look too Norse.)
Jaimie Alexander as Sif
and of course Natalie Portman as Jane Foster

Rumor is that Thor apparently starts with six warriors in Asgard: Thor, Loki, the Warriors Three and Sif. Loki, Odin's adopted son, usurps the throne and Thor is cast down to Earth. It supposedly ends with a battle between Thor and Loki. Loki escapes and goes on to be featured in The Avengers film.
It is also being reported that the alter ego of Donald Blake will NOT appear in the film (yay!).

Thor is also rumored to feature an appearance by Hawkeye.

I would like to start a fan drive to get Robert Plant in the film!
