In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Adriana Barraza is in negotiations to come aboard Marvel Studios' Thor. The film is being directed by Kenneth Branagh.
Marvel Studios expands its film universe with a new type of superhero: Thor. This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
Barraza is going to play one of the humans. Also in the cast are Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Idris Elba and Kat Dennings.
Thor will start shooting next week at Marvel's Manhattan Beach studios in California.
