Sir Anthony Hopkins will play Odin, father to Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston), according to reports from Variety. Bringing an actor of capability and audience appeal is a smart move on Marvel’s part and is sure to increase interest in this film, which isn’t lighting too many fires from what I can see.

Clearly Hopkins is a Ghostbusters fan and when someone asked him if he was a God, he said Yes.
