IGN caught up with British actor Charlie Hunnam who’s name has been thrown around as a possible candidate for Thor (along with Channing Tatum and Alexander Skarsgard to name a few). He confirmed that he has done a screen test for the role, but doesn’t know the current casting status.
Hunnam confirmed that he has indeed screen-tested for the role of the god of thunder. He has only shot one screen test so far, and when asked if it involved running around with a helmet and a hammer, he replied with a smile, “Something like that.”
Hunnam didn’t know what the status of the casting was but said that his people have been talking to Marvel. He believes that since Marvel pushed the start date of Thor back a few months the studio is taking its time to make the best decision for the film.
