Chris O'Dowd Teases THOR: THE DARK WORLD Role And Comments On DAREDEVIL Rumors

We still don't know exactly who he's playing in Thor: The Dark World (although it's been speculated that he'll be Dr. Donald Blake), but in the following interview, Chris O'Dowd teases his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and briefly addresses the rumour that he might be playing Matt Murdock.

Who is Chris O'Dowd playing in Thor: The Dark World? Well, the fact that his reportedly brief appearance in the movie will be with Natalie Portman led many to wonder whether he'll make an appearance as Dr. Donald Blake (who was cheekily referenced in THOR). Well, talking to MTV Splash Page recently, the actor was asked directly whether or not he would be interested in playing Daredevil - another character that some fans have speculated may be introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe through the actor - now the studio holds the rights. In response, he said only, "There's a lot of talk of that. Maybe some contract talk..." Check out the video for more!

Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World" continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.


Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Tom Hiddleston as Loki
Anthony Hopkins as Odin
Natalie Portman as Jane Foster
Zachary Levi as Fandral
Ray Stevenson as Volstagg
Tadanobu Asano as Hogun
Jaimie Alexander as Sif

SKOne - 5/20/2013, 1:24 PM
Chris O'Dowd would be a great older version of Eric O'Grady, but he is definitely wrong for either Hank Pym or Scott Lang.
spidey1994 - 5/20/2013, 1:24 PM
Where the hell did the "Chris O'Dowd playing Daredevil" rumours come from?!
ForMeToPoopOn - 5/20/2013, 1:35 PM
Yeah, he doesn't scream "Daredevil" to me. Doesn't even whisper it.
Reasonnnn - 5/20/2013, 1:36 PM
Chris O'Dowd as Daredevil? Love the guy, solid actor and is very funny but I personally can't see it.
neonhero - 5/20/2013, 1:40 PM
No one can see it. Which is for the best. That would just be weird. I could see him as Foggy, though...
Moohika - 5/20/2013, 1:41 PM
I think Michael C Hall from the show Dexter would be a perfect Daredevil
joniegogo84 - 5/20/2013, 1:43 PM
i think theres too many Chris in this movie..
MarvelWeiner - 5/20/2013, 1:44 PM
DrDoom - 5/20/2013, 1:50 PM
Murdock is coming....

Doom's word is law
joniegogo84 - 5/20/2013, 1:50 PM
or Marvel just loves someone with Chris on them..
BigDamnHero - 5/20/2013, 1:54 PM
When/Where did that rumor start? Never seen him in a serious role. Could work though if he packs on some muscle.
WorstUserNameEver - 5/20/2013, 1:56 PM
he's f(rikk)in with us.
crowlers - 5/20/2013, 2:00 PM
Hope he gets a recurring role in MCU & the IT crowd is going to film a special soon.
XmutantX - 5/20/2013, 2:01 PM
Dr strange
ClarkFarley2012 - 5/20/2013, 2:14 PM
Ummm no..
mkilban2 - 5/20/2013, 2:21 PM
Yes get Aziz Ansari in a role! haha
TheDpool - 5/20/2013, 2:24 PM
It would take one hell of a trip to the gym for Roy to become daredevil haha
marvel72 - 5/20/2013, 2:25 PM
wouldn't be on my shortlist of guys to play daredevil.
Upstartcrow - 5/20/2013, 2:39 PM
I could see it... Problem is, his American accent isn't great, and he'd need to slim down and add muscle definition. Other than that, he's not the worst choice for Daredevil.
PapaEmeritus - 5/20/2013, 2:40 PM
Foggy Nelson maybe.
ricko8687 - 5/20/2013, 2:43 PM
I could see him playing foggy Nelson not matt Murdock got to put in serious gym time good actor though
Optimus83 - 5/20/2013, 2:47 PM

Daredevil cameo in Thor: The Dark World. ...¡¡¡Cool!!!
PapaEmeritus - 5/20/2013, 2:49 PM
C'mon Marvel, Daredevil is my favorite of yours! Don't [frick] with him damn it!
cmax - 5/20/2013, 2:55 PM
I hate this guy.
Inhuman - 5/20/2013, 3:08 PM
This guy looks nothing like Daredevil. Daredevil has to be tall, lean, and athletic
sephiroth211 - 5/20/2013, 3:10 PM
Dafuq? o_O
JoeMomma29 - 5/20/2013, 3:17 PM
Yeah I really want a real blind person to play Dare Devil so that way we have a accurate portrayal!

Durf - 5/20/2013, 3:38 PM
Don't get me wrong, I like Chris O'Dowd. He's a really funny dude, but just no to him playing DD
TheAbomination - 5/20/2013, 3:41 PM
This O'Dowd guy seems really annoying. Marvel would be out of their minds to cast him in any other movies. I seriously hope his scene in The Dark World is quick and painless. Aziz is an annoying fvck. Therefore, he can rot in hell.
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/20/2013, 6:17 PM
He would be a terrible choice for DD. I think FOX could do a very good DD movie, they wouldn't have trouble doing a mature R rated DD film. Disney can too but they have to give it to touchstone or something
Luko - 5/20/2013, 6:18 PM
Bring him on!!!
Spidex3000 - 5/20/2013, 6:32 PM
Common guys, it's pretty obvious that he'll be doctor strange
SpoonWielder - 5/20/2013, 9:55 PM
Is this because he played a blind guy in Dinner for Smucks?
ImnotDaredevil - 5/20/2013, 10:48 PM
Jobu - 5/21/2013, 3:20 AM
He was great in Dinner for Smucks. Nowhere near right for the role of DD though.
nmasterofnaught - 5/21/2013, 5:37 AM
@ FIRG seriously does kevin feige have a fetish for chris's or seomthing

- its a shame chris o'dowd's career is blowing up and not so much for Richard Ayoade...

GreenieGobbie - 5/21/2013, 11:56 PM
I can't see this guy playing Daredevil. Doesn't look like he would be able to pull it off.
