Figure I would give the casting updates for Thor:
Chris Hemsworth - Thor (Kirks dad in Star Trek)
Natalie Portman - Jane
Anthony Hopkins - Odin
Kat Dennings - Darcy
Ray Stevenson - Volstagg
Renee Russo - Frigga
Tom Hiddleston - Loki
As for Capt. America, I would be cool with Leo or Pitt, but what about Matt Damon? I think he would be solid.
And Joss Whedon has confirmed that he's directing.
I realize I'm putting this here for you to read... but please, don't talk about it.
THE AVENGERS - were on stage together at Comic-Con, and HERE is a giant full sized picture of it showing, from left to right, Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Scarlet Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (the Hulk) and director Joss Whedon. Itís an amazing cast with the exception of Ruffalo, who replaced Edward Norton. So they replaced one monotone, zero-charisma bore with another, for a character who talks about science. Try to be in your seats for his scenes so you donít fall down. (aint it cool)

Norton >>>>>> Ruffalo.....
