    But... meh.

    EDIT : OH... and at the risk of being labeled a racist... while I didn't think Elba Idris took away anything from the movie, that Japanese dude killed every scene he was in because he was CLEARLY not a native speaker of whatever language it was that Asgardians speak (English apparently... for some reason) and that makes ZERO SENSE.

    So... I know they put those guys in there to sell more tickets over seas (which is actually more racist than complaining about it if you really think about it) but I still think it detracted slightly from the movie.
    For the record, and I'm not just saying this because I love that actor, one of the Warriors Three is Asian.



    Personally, I didn't think his english was that bad, but it was pretty obvious why he only had two or three short lines.

    I guess they could have used an Asian actor that had a better grasp of english, but I kind of assume Kenneth Branagh wanted someone totally awesome in the role.

    is he Asian or Mongol? Small distinction, but still.

    I'm not an expert at Thor-related trivia, but if I remember correctly his actual race has never been said and, in fact, very little is known about his past. Unless something has been revealed in the last 8 or 9 years. I've never really cared enough to pay attention.

    If it helps, though, this same actor Tadanobu Asano played Genghis Khan in the movie "Mongol".



    Which was a damn good movie, by the way.

    Like I said...small distinction, but worth noting nonetheless. The Mongol were more of a barbarian tribe very much unlike the typical sophisticated Asian stereotype. I honestly was asking a question because I did not know. While they are both 'Asian' it's a completely different character depending...

    ****ing whatever! Get an actor that speaks the same language as the rest of them. This isn't an episode of LOST, they're supposed to be ****ing immortal AND best of friends.

    You know how long it takes my Canadian accent to come out around my family?

    Aboot two minutes!

    Hogun isn't an Aesir like the rest of them that's why he doesn't speak the same language. Hogun is obviously Asian, and Tadanobu Asano is an amazing actor. The guy had about 3 lines in the movie so I don't know what you're bitching about hes exactly right for the part he is playing.

    He's not a mongol because his homeland was destroyed by Mogul of the mystic mountain, thats why its fair to assume he's Japanese or Chinese.
