Loki - Arch Nemesis of Thor could be Josh Hartnett.

Yesterday it was mentioned that Alexander Skarsgard could be cast as Thor. Now news is coming out about who might be playing the Thunder-god's evil half-brother, Loki.

According to IESB.net, Josh Hartnett is currently on the short list to take on the role of the god of mischief and evil.

This is all very much a rumour although Hartnett has met with director Kenneth Branagh and both parties are interested in seeing if they can make it work.

In the comics, and mythology, Loki is Thor's adopted brother, and is actually a diminutive Frost Giant. Loki fancies himself the God of Mischief, but ultimately becomes the God of Evil. He has been Thor's longest running foe throughout the comics, and in mythology is supposed to be one of the key forces behind Ragnarok.

I think this is a bad, bad, bad idea to have Josh Hartnett as Loki. I just don't feel that he has the acting chops to pull off the intelligent, twisted, ruthless, machiavellian character of Loki.

Up until this point I hadn't even thought about who would play the other characters in the Marvel Studios film. Not sure who would be a good choice to portray Loki, Odin or the Warriors Three. Ron Perlman as Odin could be cool.

Any thoughts on who could play Loki or do you feel Josh Hatnett do the part justice?
