I'm not sure how reliable a source for movie news the German version of GQ magazine is, but Ain't It Cool was alerted by one of their German readers that actor Matthaius Schweigholer confirmed to German GQ that not only is he up for a possible role, but Robert DeNiro and Jude Law are also now part of Kenneth Branaugh's Thor cast.

I can't seem to turn up any information about what Schweigholer's role in the film is, but the bigger question is what Marvel Universe roles are DeNiro and Law being considered for? Most of the principals are cast, including Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. Last week Stellan Skarsgard joined the cast, and most assumed he was going to play Odin.

There are plenty of colorful secondary characters in Marvel Comics' Thor, so it will be interesting to see just who DeNiro and Law are supposed to play. I'm taking this news with a giant grain of salt, but if it holds true, they'll both make fine additions to the cast. Thor is set for release Summer 2011. I'm curious--what characters would you like to see these actors play?
