Kinnaman was one of the contenders for the lead roles in Thor and Mad Max 4 (2013). He told the newspaper Östran that "it was really close that I got the lead role in Mad Max 4. It stood between me and two others, and the one who got the role was Tom Hardy who plays the lead role in the film Bronson. [...] [The director] was very pleased [with my performance] - but they needed someone who gave an older impression." Regarding Thor, he has stated that "they wanted someone with a Scandinavian touch. At last we were only five candidates left. Unfortunately I could not fly over [to the United States] and do test shoots with Natalie Portman; it interfered with the filming of Snabba Cash". Although Kinnaman admits that he is eager to work and become recognized in America, he says that "I absolutely don't feel that I have to take any role that I can get just because it is the United States. I'm looking for something interesting, I'm still young in my artistry, and I must dare to do things even when there's a risk for failure".
