Chris O’Dowd has been making quite a name for himself in Hollywood in recent years, putting in impressive performances in the hit comedy Bridesmaids, as well as the less than impressive This Is 40. Now, it seems that we will be seeing Chris in a superhero movie, as he has filmed a small scene for the upcoming Marvel movie Thor: The Dark World.
O’Dowd explained to Indiewire, “I think I’ll do more dramatic stuff and I think I have some stuff coming out that’s a bit more dramatic. I don’t know if I’d do an action movie because I don’t know if I could keep a straight face honestly, I just think it’s so silly. Like I love watching them but I can’t imagine me doing one.”
He added, “Actually, you know what I’ve done, just for fun because I didn’t think there was any way that I could be in a superhero movie, so I’ve done a scene in the new Thor movie, just for that. I just do like one scene, which was fun.”
This has led to speculation that Chris O’Dowd could be playing Donald Blake in Thor: The Dark World, after it was revealed in the first Thor movie that Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) previously dated him. However, until the movie is released, on October 30 in the UK and November 8 in the US, we will just have to keep guessing.
Who do you think Chris O’Dowd will be playing in Thor: The Dark World?
