Geez, More Thor Rumors, Who Might Be Loki?

Posted by G-Man (36770 posts) - - Show Bio
Nothing's been confirmed yet.  The latest news is that Josh Hartnett has met with Kenneth Branagh to play Loki.  He's supposedly on a short list of potential actors.   What do you think?  We can then assume they'll be going with the original male version of Loki and not the current female version. 

IESB says their sources have brought this information to them.  Hartnett apparently wants to play the villain since he hasn't before (and look what playing a bad guy did for Heath Ledger's fame).

Thor could use at least one big name to spice things up.  Us comic fans will be eager to see him on screen but the average movie goer might need a 'name' to make them want to see the movie.   This is all speculaton at this point.  Do you think he'd make a good Loki?  IESB says he's 6'3".  He can act.  Can you think of someone else?

Let's just hope he doesn't have the super long horns on his helmet.

Maybe they're going for halfway between old Loki and new Loki. :P

I'm not seeing it. No offense to Hartnett (cause I know he reads my posts) but I think Loki should look more...menacing. Someone who has a commanding presence. Like say....Danial Day Lewis. Now that would be sick.

it's so hard to judge people for the roles in this movie without knowing what the costumes are going to look like because any time i picture anybody in a thor or loki suit i think they look ridiculous

Could he work?

I always thought Loki was kinda gross. Not straight up ugly, but not a pretty boy.

I'm sure people didn't think Ledger could pull off Joker either...(man that just sounds sooo wrong).

(because you went there first) I don't see why, he pulled off Jake Gyllenhaal just fine.

Harnett would do a PERFECT LOKI if they go for the Ultimates version instead of the classic one. But i know that they're going for the classic version of the character so... I damn them all to hell.

I buy whatever he does after BHD

Josh Harnett is a good actor and he is a good choice to play Loki but I rather see Josh Harnett play Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner) in a Green Lantern Movie.

I guess

I think he'd do ok as Loki.

I think David Tennant could be a really good Loki because he looks wise and looks the right age. Loki is my favourite Marvel character ever so Ken Branagh better give Loki to the best villainous, young actor he can find. Preferably David Tennant.

Yeah, in a perfect world, Daniel Day-Lewis would be in every movie.  Something tells me he has better things to do.  I'm more concerned with the writing.  Characters like Loki tend to be good, whoever's playing them.  It's Thor you should be worried about.

I think he could work actually.

Josh Harnett could probably play as good a Loki as Heath Ledger did the Joker. Cover up that pretty-boy face and there COULD actually be a great actor in there... or not.
