'THOR 2' Looking For Valkyries? Plus Idris Elba Talks And Kat Dennings Not Returning?

AICN revealed a casting-call sheet which is for looking for to fill roles in Thor 2. It seemly gives the impression that Marvel could be casting Asgardian warriors and The Valkyrior. Asgardian warriors are mostly men, so the assumption with the women they are casting would end up playing the fierce Valkyrie. We already know that this film will be mostly set in Asgard and the Asgardian population will be amped up.

We are starting to cast for a new blockbuster feature film about one of the Marvel super heroes.Filming will be starting this summer.

Role 1: Muscular males and females. We are looking for males and females with athletic and muscular body frames from any ethnic background.

Requirements:-you must have a Muscular or athletic body frame.-You must have easy access to London

To Apply: Please upload a full length photo on to your profile of yourself either in Underwear or swim wear showing your physic.

Role 2: Blond haired Muscular males and femalesWe are looking for BLOND haired males and females with athletic and muscular body frames.

Requirements:-You must be blond or fair haired.-you must have a Muscular or athletic body frame.-You must have easy access to London

VALKYRIES: The Valkyrior are a great army of Asgardian female (mostly blond) warriors lead by Brunhilde a blond warrior who carries a spear and rides a winged horse. She is also known as the strongest of the Valkyries and would later become a Defender/Avenger. They were once tasked on carrying fallen Asgardians and humans from the battle field to the great halls of Valhalla which is the realm of fallen heroes. When humans evolved they were restricted from bringing them to Valhalla so not freak out the now enlightened population. 

Idris Elba is on the promotional machine for his summer blockbuster Prometheus. He talked to Collider and MTV about his role perhaps being expanded in the sequel. There had been hopes with the Bifrost destroyed that Heimdall would end up getting more screentime and action scenes. 

"I'm actually excited about it," Idris Elba said. "I literally just did a costume fitting the other day." Revealing that he has already seen an outline of the sequel's story, he's mostly anticipating Heimdall's expanded role. "Definitely Heimdall's more involved, but also, what's more involved is who the Asgardians are," he said. "I think we'll see a sense of that. It's a huge film, 'Thor 2,' but I also think it's micro in a way that you start to look at people, who they are a little bit more."

"I’d just like to get to know him a bit more. Who is Heimdall? He guards the gate. Okay. Is there anything else? I don’t know what is in the script because I haven’t read it yet. But, the audience has responded to Asgard and wants to know more about who lives there and what it’s about. I’m sure, if they do that, Heimdall will be featured more."

Actress Kat Dennings was left off the last official call-sheet for Thor 2 which confirmed the return of the majority of the cast. Dennings was the exception, seemingly confirming that Darcy wouldn't be back for the sequel. Kat did an interview with Crave which she confirmed Marvel hasn't contacted her about the film yet. It's not looking good if the rest of the cast is set for the August production in London and have some sort of outline/draft of the script. It might not be personal coming down to sacrifices made to move the production to London.

"You know, I don't know. Marvel is so tight lipped, you never know anything. So I have no idea."

With the production heading to London, the country has acting union laws which restrict the number of American actors allowed to work in the country on one project. Natalie Portman (Jane), Jaimie Alexander (Sif), Josh Dallas (Fendral) and Rene Russo (Frigga) are the American actors already set to return. Not to mention the new additions Marvel will likely add to the cast. Since the studio likely won't want to be limited to casting only Brits. Thor had been shot in New Mexico where they don't share the same union restrictions. There is always the possibility she could end up having a cameo or be added later into the production. Nothing seems to be set in stone at this point.
