Official <em>Thor</em> Movie News: The Warriors Three Have Been Cast!

The Asgardian adventurers have been officially cast. Oh heck yeah!

Thor director Kenneth Branagh has signed Stuart Townsend, Ray Stevenson, and Tadanobu Asano to play The Warriors Three.

The Warriors Three are made up of the Asgardians Fandral, Hogun and Volstagg.

Fandral the Dashing: is a warrior of Asgard and an adventurer. He is an irrepressible swashbuckler and romantic. His bravery and optimism often puts the group in highly disadvantageous positions; as perennially pointed out by the gloomy Hogun. Fandral considers himself the consummate ladies' man and is often depicted with a bevy of young ladies. His actual success with these ladies is intermittent at best, but as such provides numerous opportunities for humorous results. Despite these flaws, he possesses an excessively noble spirit and will do the right thing without thought to his personal safety or prosperity.

Hogun the Grim: The only thing known about his past is that he's not an Aesir like most of the Asgardians. Also, his unnamed homeland was conquered long ago by Mogul of the Mystic Mountain, who slew Hogun's forebears and laid waste to the land. He is primarily characterized by his brusque, taciturn, and often short-tempered demeanor. He is the brooding pessimist of the group, as opposed to Volstagg's irrepressible good humor and Fandral's brash heroism. He is a fierce and unrelenting warrior, a collector of weaponry and often the voice of reason for the Warriors Three.

Volstagg the Valiant: His origin beyond being a member of the Asgardian race, a warrior and adventurer, and a friend of Thor has not been revealed. Volstagg is fairly advanced in age for an Asgardian, and it has been suggested that he was a highly respected and feared warrior in his prime.

Marvel's Thor also stars: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, and Stellan Skarsgard; with Samuel L. Jackson returning as Nick Furr.

Filming starts next January; the release date is set for May 20th, 2011.
