Can Thor and Catwoman Save Us from the 'Robopocalypse?'

Humanity has known for a long time that the "Robopocalypse" is inevitably coming. But despite plenty of warning, it seems as though our world leaders have yet to come up with any kind of focused plan to save us from this terrifying but visually spectacular doom.

Luckily for us, however, Steven Spielberg may succeed where the United Nations has failed, because according to The Hollywood Reporter, he's currently is talks to enlist both Thor and Catwoman to head up Earth's defense.

Rest easy, America!

Based on the New York Times bestselling novel of the same name by author Daniel H. Wilson, the story of "Robopocalypse" is pretty much self-evident: Robots got nuts and people fight them. But despite the fact that the film is being directed by Spielberg, who is only the most powerful person in Hollywood, "Robopocalypse" has yet to sign any stars.

That is apparently about to change, however, as both Chris Hemsworth and Anne Hathaway are reportedly in talks to headline the film.

Just which roles they will play is still up in the air (there is one friendly robot in the film, so that could conceivably be either of them), but really, we'd pretty much watch these two do just about anything, so it probably doesn't even matter.

All that matters is that Thor and Catwoman may soon be fighting robots on our behalf in one of the biggest sci-fi epics of our time. To which we simply say: Godspeed, heroes.
