Could This Comics Villain Be The REAL Antagonist Of THOR: THE DARK WORLD?
We all know the villain of Thor: The Dark Worlf is Malekith the Accursed, but could there be another baddie behind the chaos in the film? Read on for my theories involving a character from the comics you're sure to recognize..
So for anyone who has been living under a rock, Malekith the Accursed will be the antagonist for the upcoming film, Thor:The Dark World. For those comic book movie fans that couldn't wait over the summer until November and for even those who had an acumen over the trailer, spoiler alert: It was revealed that Loki betrays Thor(not that much of a surprise). In a frame in the second trailer, Thor can be seen on the ground while Loki, Malekith, Kurse, and the Dark Elves restrain Jane Foster in some magical Darth Vader choke hold. The frame can be seen below:
If you're an active reader of Marvel Comics, you'd know the villainous bond both Loki and Malekith share. They're an ingredient that would be sure as hell to start some trouble. But not only that, they both work under a certain monarch known by many fans of Thor, known as Surtur.
For those of you who aren't that much of a Thor reader, Surtur is one of Odin's greatest enemies and is the monarch of Muspelheim. Surtur has powers beyond most Marvel heroes, in some cases including Thor. But enough with the character background.
This is almost in congruency with the Loki and Thanos relationship in The Avengers, there's a villain who's set out to complete the goal of the villain behind the scenes. But what you must think about is, even if Malekith did plan this entire operation out, what would be his sole purpose in the destruction of Earth? There has to be something behind all of this.
Surtur's goal within the Marvel Comics mythology was to destroy the Earth since he was imprisoned within it's depths for years. Why wouldn't he want to destroy Earth? Not to mention, Loki and Malekith became partners in crime because of Surtur. Within the Modern Age, Loki set out to disband the relationship between Thor and Jane and in order to do so, he releases Surtur, which comes back into play with the image above of Jane being choked with some type of magic.
So what are your thoughts? Do you think someone such as Cul Borson is behind this? Sound off your comments below in the comments section below.
