No self-respecting take on Norse mythology would consider omitting the All-Father, and “Twilight of the Gods” picked one with gravitas to spare. John Noble, the Australian actor whose performance as Denethor in “The Lord of the Rings” had fans unexpectedly rooting for self-immolation, joins the cast as Odin. Paterson Joseph of “Timeless” and the criminally underrated “Hyperdrive” will bring the mischief as Loki, while Corey Stoll from “Ant-Man” will play every kid’s favorite epic Norse hero, Hrafnkel.
Peter Stormare, fresh off his work on “American Gods,” returns to the world of myths and legends as the voice of Ulfr. Jamie Chung, who also worked with Snyder on 2011’s “Sucker Punch,” will play Hel, the goddess of death. “Game of Thrones” actors Pilou Asbæk and Kristofer Hivju are both on board, with Asbæk wielding the power of Mjolnir as Thor and Hivju playing the dwarf Andvari. Sylvia Hoeks, recently seen terrorizing her fellow replicants in “Blade Runner 2049,” will play Sigrid, presumably the queen of Norse epics best known for being a complete badass.
News about “Twilight of the Gods” is trickling in slowly but surely, so be sure to check back soon for more info.
