Marvel wants WWE wrestler for 'Thor'

By
Marvel Studios reportedly wants WWE wrestler Triple H to star in the lead role of its new movie adaptation of Thor.

The news follows the announcement earlier this week that Layer Caker director Matthew Vaughn is going to be in charge of the movie.

A report on Chud.com claims that the wrestler-turned-actor is the number one target for the film studios but apparently the British director is not so keen.

Meanwhile, IESB.net suggests that Vaughn would prefer to see Rome star Kevin McKidd be given the role.

Triple H has featured in a Marvel movie before, starring alongside Wesley Snipes in Blade: Trinity. He was also connected with the now defunct King Conan: Conan of Iron.
