HHH & McKidd Up For Thor?

CHUD has heard rumor that Marvel Studios wants wrestler Triple H (“Blade: Trinity”) to play the god of thunder Thor in the film adaptation of the famed comic.

This has caused a big riff with director Matthew Vaughn (“Stardust”) who “is dead set against it.” However with the disappointing opening of “Stardust” and the looming strike, he may not have much choice.

Other talk has yielded a far more interesting possibility – Kevin McKidd (HBO’s “Rome,” “Kingdom of Heaven,” “Hannibal Rising”). Of course that will also depend upon the failure/success of NBC’s “Journeyman” which he’s the lead star in.
