There are rumors that Triple H (Paul Levesque) may possibly play the Marvel superhero "Thor" in an upcoming movie release.
"....director Matthew Vaughn is going to start work on " Thor," a movie version of the popular Marvel Comics character.. For the uninitiated, Thor is hammer - wielding hero with long flowing blonde locks who's sent from the planet Asgard to Earth to protect mankind.. Mark Protosevich ( I Am Legend ) has adapted the comic book series from the big screen and it’s understood that Marvel Studios are aiming to start production later this year..
But who will play the mighty character " Thor?" Well there is are rumors of two contenders..
Kevin McKidd of the HBO series Rome may be the guy to play Thor in the upcoming film.. Well when you look at the above pics of McKidd and Thor, there does seem to be a close resemblance..
The other contender is WWE's Jean - Paul Levesque, aka Triple H.. Marvel wants wrestler Triple H to play the god of thunder, while Vaughn is dead set against it.. Triple H is a name that comes up in a lot of fan casting for the role, mainly because the guy really does look Thor - ish, but his acting resume is a little thin, so I can see where Vaughn is not happy with the idea of making his lead an actor whose main film experience was in Blade: Trinity.. Then again, Triple H would bring his own hammer; even if it is a sledge hammer.. But which movie does Triple H want to be attached too? Thor, Conan or He - Man? "
Triple H seems to fit perfectly into this role and since he's already been a part of the comic book based movie Blade - Trinity (New Line Platinum Series), another role with him now as the lead character could be interesting. Levesque is also scheduled to be in an upcoming WWE film entitled "Jornada del muerto" (aka Journey of Death).
