Kevin McKidd No Longer In “Thor”?

Corona Coming Attractions reports that a casting call has been sent out for the lead role in Marvel Studio’s “Thor”.

“Rome” and “Journeyman” actor Kevin McKidd was previously in talks to play the titular god of thunder, this would indicate he’s likely no longer involved.

The casting call requires a 6-foot or taller man in his mid-late 20’s. They must be “Physically powerful, very handsome, occasionally egotistical, petulant, and wild. A natural warrior with a quick charming wit who must be genuinely and severly humbled before becoming the compassionate, mature hero of our film.”

Kenneth Branagh directs the project which kicks off this July before wrapping in September.
