While he will next appear in the Alan Taylor helmed Thor: The Dark World, Stellan Skarsgard's next major blockbuster looks set to be Disney's live-action remake of Cinderella. The actor - who also appeared in The Avengers - is being lined up to play "the grand duke, the king’s adviser, who just may have ulterior motives in his guidance." Kenneth Branagh will direct the fairy tale, while Cinderella already has its titular character (Lily James), a handsome prince (Richard Madden), a wicked stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and two wicked stepsisters (Sophie McShera and Holliday Granger) along with the Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter).

Trying to take another jab at the avengers I see. If you didn't understand the purpose of his involvement, you're an idiot. My 4 year old nephew understood what his role was.

Can't wait. Snow White could have been better but I actually like the modern takes on Fairy Tales. Plus since it has a great cast and director, I have extremely high hopes for it!

Mos=typical science dude, (Emil Hamilton), on the good guy side, (superman), needed by the good guy to stop the world engine, and he had the ability to override the world engine with his brain powers?
Jollem - 7/8/2013, 4:54 PM
@MrCBM56 - ya had it until the overriding the world engine thing :)

There is little room in Tupolev's heart for anyone but Tupolev.

Actually no. I honestly didn't even expect you reply, I'm just waiting to see what TheWonderer have to say. :)

I almost thought Stellan Skarsgard was going to play Cinderella :( oh well my dreams and hopes got crushed for that...

meow.

OMG not a stab at Avengers.

Thor set up that the guy was like Janes father figure and then hes working with SHIELD. Just seemed strange. He didn't have any character at all in Avengers. Chill out.
MrCBM56 - 7/8/2013, 5:28 PM
Ok wonderer, I'm chill first of all. I'm not trying to start an argument or anything, but you constantly pick on The Avengers.

I'm not about to write a long comment of his involvement, but it was self explanatory. Especially if you had seen the Thor post credits scene.

Whoever goes to these movies, willingly, is a [frick]ing pansy
Lozzy - 7/8/2013, 5:32 PM
Stellen Skarsgard as Cinderella or GTFO

His son could be the prince... (I think Alexander is his son... I am not sure though)
jcfrommars9 - 7/8/2013, 6:47 PM
@TheOneAboveAll

No, you're correct, Alexander is Stellan's son. Many don't make the connection.

thewonderer - 7/8/2013, 8:15 PM
I will see this for the king of the north....*sobs*
StrangerX - 7/9/2013, 12:46 AM
he just happened to know Fury, thats how he ended up at shield. Selvig was just at the right place wrong time. Im sure Loki would have rathered Jane Foster to toy with Thors head, but like Coulson said they moved her immediately.

hmmmm... i think i'll watch The Avengers again.
GetsugaTensho22 - 7/9/2013, 1:16 AM
LOL so much butthurt over a simple question. Chill the [frick] out MrCBM56.
caroldanvers - 7/9/2013, 6:32 AM
why are people asking about prince charming ffs it's right there in the text, richard madden is the prince, jesus read
can't wait for this movie, it has such a brilliant cast
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/9/2013, 7:13 AM
This dude is so [frick]ing awesome in Ronin.
KNIGHT3000 - 7/9/2013, 9:19 AM
jcfrommars9-

Smallville did the same story as Thor 1, loses power, lives as mortal, takes on other superpowered bad guys without powers and wins. It took over 3 episodes to complete and was much better executed.

I can understand if you didn't know that, nor ever seen it. Which is probably good for you, cause in comparison Thor SUCKED.
EpitomeofAwesome - 7/9/2013, 2:05 PM
He's awesome

-_-

You must of missed the comment when I said I was chill...and I wasn't butt hurt. Anyone who didn't understand his involvement in the movie are either-

A. A child (considerably under 5)

Or

B. An idiot.

;)

Are you chill?

You must also be illiterate because wonderer did not ask a question...
