Marvel Fun Fact

Chris Hemsworth was not the first actor pursued for the part of Thor. Brad Pitt, Kevin McKidd, Channing Tatum and even wrestler Triple H were all in the running as well. Daniel Craig was also allegedly offered the role in 2008 but turned it down due to his committment to play iconic movie hero James Bond.
