Well, you can strike the last part of that statement, folks. Speaking to MTV News today about his “Star Trek” role and the videos he directed for the Zac Brown Band that were recently nominated for Country Music Television Awards, Collins confirmed that he had indeed met with “Thor” filmmakers about, well… something.
“I had a little meeting. I think I can say that much,” Collins told MTV News when asked if he auditioned for a “Thor” role. “[’Thor’ director] Kenneth Branagh is a bad-ass. I’ve been a fan of his as an actor and I know he’s gonna be amazing as a director for this piece.”
“Believe me, I’m itching to say all kinds of stuff,” he added.
While he couldn’t say anything else about his “meeting” with the “Thor” team, Collins had quite a bit to say about his high hopes for the film.
“It’s going to be a beautiful thing, I’m sure,” said Collins. “It’s an amazing comic book. If you grew up reading these comic books, he was definitely a bad-ass, that guy.”
So, with Collins confirmed as, at the very least” meeting with the “Thor” team, you can now return to your regularly scheduled speculation, folks.
Think Collins would make a good addition to the “Thor” cast? What character should he play?
