Rene Russo Has Been Cast as Thor’s Stepmom!

Already featuring one of the most eclectic casts for any Hollywood feature, superhero-related or otherwise, Kenneth Branagh’s Thor has found its Frigga in the form of “Lethal Weapon” and Ransom star Rene Russo.

For those who failed Norse Mythology in elementary school (or didn’t think of just reading the Marvel Comics in order to get better grades in class), Frigga is Odin’s wife, the Queen of Asgard and stepmother to The Mighty Thor!

Thor starts shooting in January for a May 20, 2011 release.
