Branagh finds Thor's Warriors Three

Forget all those Jude Law/Robert De Niro rumours, at least where Thor's Warriors Three are concerned - Kenneth Branagh has found actors for the roles.

Ray Stevenson, last seen in Punisher: War Zone, Battle In Seattle's Stuart Townsend and Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano, probably best known for Mongol: The Rise Of Genghis Khan, have signed up to play the Asgardian adventurers who fight alongside Thor in the film.

They join a cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth, with Branagh planning to kick off shooting in January ready for a May 2011 release date.

Are they the right choices? And do you think De Niro might still play a role?
