Pivotal THOR: THE DARK WORLD Roles Revealed for Clive Russell And Richard Brake
Revealing a potential subplot in Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, following an earlier casting announcement, the roles of actors Clive Russell and Richard Brake have been disclosed. Check it out!
Last Friday, we reported that the ensemble cast of Marvel's Alan Taylor-directed sequel, Thor: The Dark World had grown with two new additions. British actor Clive Russell & Welsh/American actor Richard Brake was believed to have landed “minor” roles in the film, however, Deadline has revealed both of their roles to be quite pivotal.
The infamous site is reporting that Clive Russell will portray the God of War, Tyr, older brother of Chris Hemsworth's titular God of Thunder and biological son of Anthony Hopkins' all-father Odin. And Richard Brake has signed on to play a captain of the elite group of Asgardian warriors, that appeared in the original blockbuster, known as Einherjar.
According to wikipedia, Tyr has "rebelled against Odin several times due to his love of battle & fought Thor due to resentment of Thor's relationship with Sif and the fact Thor usurped his role as Asgard's greatest warrior. Once he was nearly exiled for this." That may explain his absence from the original Kenneth Branagh-directed film.
