Could Robert De Niro be in Thor?

And Jude Law too, if a new rumour is right…

Colour us supremely skeptical until someone makes an official announcement, but the latest Thor rumour has Robert De Niro and Jude Law joining the cast.

Here's why our Crapola Radar is currently beeping its neurotic little heart out: the word is from Ain't It Cool News, which got a tip that Valkyrie's Matthias Schweieghofer had told German GQ that the pair had already signed on.

It's possible - after all, Kenneth Branagh's worked with both of them separately in the past (on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Sleuth) and he's the sort of director who can attract cast members easily.

But for Thor? Really?

There's no word yet on who Scheweighofer or his even more famous, possible co-stars might be playing yet, so we'll wait and see on this one.

Either way, Branagh is gearing up to shoot early next year with the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston and Colm Feore all definitely signed on…
