Thor 2 (2013): Adds Batman and Game Of Throne Actors To Cast


3277 While filming for Thor 2, "The Dark World," is underway in Bourne Wood, England, giving us a look at a major battle scene, Marvel Studios has signed on two more cast members to the film.

The man responsible for killing Bruce Wayne's parents in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, Richard Brake (right), has signed on to the role as a captain as part of the warrior squad, Einherjar, in Thor 2. Perhaps Brake is playing The Executioner?

3278 Clive Russell (left), from Game Of Thrones, also signs on to Thor 2, as the older brother of Thor and the Asgardian god of war, Tyr. A number of times, Tyr has fought alongside Beta Ray Bill in the Marvel comic books. We here at Cosmic Book News are hoping for an appearance in Thor 2 from the last of the Korbinites.

Sounds like two good additions to Thor 2.
