Is Khloe Kardashian Trying to Get Cast in New Thor Movie?

Iron Man 2 doesn't hit theaters until May, but there is already speculation that the film includes a surprise cameo by another Marvel Comics hero: the Asgardian god Thor, whose big-screen debut is currently being filmed by Kenneth Branagh for 2011. 

According to, a French featurette on Iron Man 2 shows Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) walking past a jail cell in Monaco, in which you get a glimpse of a bearded, burly young man being photographed. Considering Marvel Studios' fondness for dropping superheroic "Easter eggs" in its movies - including Captain America's shield in Stark's workshop in the first Iron Man film and Downey's appearance as Stark at the end of The Incredible Hulk - some fans wondered if that was Chris Hemsworth, who plays the Thunder God in Branagh's movie. Branding consultant Gregory Littley asserted to that it was indeed Hemsworth.

If so, it's a smooth publicity move by Marvel, since belief is growing that some of the first publicity/on-set photos from Thor (which began filming in January) will hit the press right around the time that Iron Man 2 blasts off.
