Actor Mel Gibson was approached for a role of Odin in Thor franchise but he turned down it.
Gibson didn’t clarify why he turned it down, just saying: “I didn’t do it.” He did, however, reflect on the current crop of superhero films.
The 60-year-old actor said it was the only time he has been approached to do a superhero film, reported Digital Spy. The role instead went to veteran actor Anthony Hopkins.
Speaking to The Guardian, Gibson was asked if he was ever offered a role in a superhero movie, to which he simply said, “Yeah, long time ago, to play Thor’s dad.
“But I didn’t do it,” Gibson said Gibson as Thor’s father is an interesting prospect, but Anthony Hopkins has been so perfect in the role that it’s hard to imagine anyone else being quite as effective in the role.
“But, then again, I think all films are suffering from people not being able to now open them with their name. It’s a different kind of business these days,” he added.Follow @gorkhapost
