Marvel Studios has nabbed May 6, 2011 as the new release date for ‘THOR’ after the producers of ‘SPIDER-MAN 4’ opted to postpone fiming and reboot the entire SPIDER-MAN franchise.

THOR has begun filming and the latest casting info is:

Chris Hemsworth as Thor – the God of Thunder
Tom Hiddleston as Loki
Natalie Portman as Thor’s human love interest – Jane Foster
Anthony Hopkins as Odin
Jaimie Alexander as Thor’s Asgardian love interest – Sif
Colm Feore as a yet to be revealed villian
Stellan Skarsgård as Professor Andrew Ford
Renee Russo as Frigga
Ray Stevenson as Volstagg
Tadanobu Asano as Hogun
Josh Dallas as Fandral
Idris Elba as Heimdall
Justin Chatwin as Balder

Plot snopsis: Partially disabled medical student Dr. Donald Blake discovers his heretofore unknown alter ego, the Norse warrior, Thor.

The addition of Ray Stevenson is an interesting cast addition – actually kind of funny if you’re familiar with the comic book. The character Volstagg could end up being a sort of comic insert in some scenes a la Gimli from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
