Mel Gibson Turned Down Playing Odin in Marvel's 'Thor'

Mel Gibson has revealed that he turned down the chance to play Odin in Marvel's 'Thor'.

Thor's father is played by Anthony Hopkins. However, Gibson says he was first offered the role years ago but, unlike most actors, he didn't jump on the chance to join the franchise and the Marvel universe.

Gibson made the comment when he was asked during an interview with The Guardian if he was ever offered a role in a superhero film.

"Yeah, long time ago, to play Thor's dad," he replied. "But I didn't do it."

"Some are good," he said of the superhero genre. "Some are kind of funny. Guardians of the Galaxy. Or the first Iron Man. And some of them are just like retreats. I mean you can watch them do Spider-Man five times…"

"There is a slight shift in film. 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. I think you used to get more variety of stories, films and performances. You had more of a chance of a profound film experience. But that's not gone. I think that has been relegated to the independent world... but they have to do it twice as fast for half the money."
