Thor starts filming tomorrow, Stuart Townsend bails at the last minute.

January 11, 2010

The upcoming Thor movie co-stars Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Renee Russo and Tom Hiddleston. Kenneth Branagh is directing. It was also going to add some Dorian Gray for spice. Alas, no more.

Stuart Townsend, who played Dorian Gray in Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, has left the film because of “creative differences”. He had been cast as Fandral, an ally of Thor. Now Fandral will be played by Joshua Dallas. This cast change was an explosive development right on the eve of  production. Shooting starts Monday.

We are still thrilled about the Thor movie and the Marvel Superstars cards that will come from it. As much as we were dying to build a Dorian Gray deck, Natalie Portman will just have to fill the void.

So be it!
