In an interview with the IESB, Avi Arad talked about the planned big-screen version of Marvel Comics' late "Thor" title.
Arad confirmed rumors that swirled last week that screenwriter David Goyer ("Blade", "Batman Begins") was onboard the project - "Thor is being written now. Actually, David is going to write it. He is a Thor fanatic for a long time. He's going to write it."
The funny thing is, IGN Filmforce attended a convention this past weekend in LA where Goyer was in attendance. When asked, he apparently seem surprised to hear that Arad said he was scripting it - as far as he knew the deal was still only in the works.
Goyer added he hopes to direct the film, which is set-up at Sony Pictures. He also downplayed the notion that rumored contender Triple H would portray Thor, saying he didn't think the wrestler-actor might be all that interested in it.
So, any thoughts on who should play the God of Thunder...?
