Kevin McKidd Still Keen On “Thor”

Kevin McKidd (TV’s “Rome,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) tells IGN that he’s still a contender for the lead role in Marvel Studios’ “Thor”.

Casting wise nothing has been determined and there’s been “a lot of back and forth” but now that Kenneth Branagh is onboard as director he has become ‘excited’ about the prospect.

Marvel is currently targeting a July 16th 2010 release for the project.
