IGN.com has a story about the upcoming THOR movie, which just had STARDUST’S Matthew Vaughn sign on as director. But who will play the Norse God?
The story says that Marvel is interested in getting WWE star (and Vince McMahon son-in-law) Triple H (Paul Levesque) to play the part. You may remember that a few years ago, Triple H was in BLADE: TRINITY and was a candidate to play everyone’s favorite barbarian in the not-yet-made KING CONAN.
Movies starring wrestlers have not fared well in recent times. WWE created their own film division to feature some of the stars (John Cena, Steve Austin), but not of the films have been successful. The Rock has been a couple Hollywood hits, but in a supporting role.
How would the “King of Kings” do as “The God of Thunder?” Well, he’s got long hair, lots of muscles and already carries around a hammer. It sounds like he’s already on his way.
You be the judge.
