With most the title cast now selected, Marvel realized that they were short one mother for Thor. Stepping in to play Frigga, the mother of the hammer-wielding Norse hero, is Rene Russo.

Rene Russo for Thor

Scripted by Mark Protosevich and Zack Stentz, Thor follows the powerful but arrogant warrior Thor as he reignites an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

As the wife of Norse god Odin, to be played by Anthony Hopkins in the film, Frigga is the queen of Asgard. She’s also the mother of Thor and Loki, the pic’s primary villain, portrayed by Tom Hiddleston. Natalie Portman is onboard as Thor's love interest.
