Christopher Eccleston Cast As Malekith The Accursed In THOR: THE DARK WORLD!
We have our Thor 2 villain -- Deadline report that British actor Eccleston (Dr Who, Shallow Grave) will play Malekith, ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim in Alan Taylor's Marvel sequel..
According to Deadline, Christopher Eccleston has been set for the villain role in Marvel Studios’ Thor sequel. The actor, probably best known to sci-fi fans for his turn as the ninth Doctor Who, will play the Dark Elf ruler, Malekith The Accursed. Obviously that also confirms the earlier rumor that Thor will be taking on the Dark Elves in the movie.
Eccleston is a fine actor, impressing in pretty much every role he has been cast in (the less said about Gi Joe: Rise Of Cobra the better), and is sure to make for a great villain. The choice of Malekith as the character might disappoint some fans however, as many hoped to see The Enchantress or The Executioner. But there is every chance one or both of them could also make an appearance too of course. What do you guys think of the choice of villain and actor?
