Jul 15, 2012 | 5:30am EDT

The Danish Casino Royale star will take on the role previously played on the big screen by Brian Cox and Sir Anthony Hopkins in the TV adaptation of writer Thomas Harris' concept, and that means he won't be free to battle Thor.

He tells The Playlist, "That's not happening unfortunately. I had a meeting with them, but they were a little too late. And then Hannibal came in, and everything just came in the same period, so now it's not happening."
