As much as I prefer Mikkelsen for the role, you can't go wrong with Eccleston. Now I'm slightly more excited for the sequel than I was before.

Loved him in "Gone in 60 Seconds" .....

BTW, doesn't this mean we're now one step closer to Surtur? I'm going over the Wiki on him and man I can totally see how they'd want to use Kurse here too .... the battle and then having Malekith sabotage both of them over the lava.

Can't wait to see concept art of how he's supposed to look.

I'm going to have to watch Gone in 60 Seconds again. I completely forgot he was in that movie.

He plays Raymond Calitri. I love his accent in that movie .... and that scene where Cage goes to meet him and settle the debt so that Eccleston will let his brother go.

I'd post the YouTube video, but Eccleston uses the a-hole word.

Thanks, I had no idea what role he played before. And if you mates are all excited about Eccleston it seems to be a good choice.

So he has a little blemish on his movie resume. Who doesn't?!

I'm severely disappointed that this forum does not have a Doctor Who smiley. What gives, SHH?!?!

If the fangirls can't have Loki again as the main villain I'm sure Dr. Who will suffice...

so...no amora and skurge after all.


So...does that mean we may get Kurse?

Not gunna lie, not too thrilled about the elves. Thor NEEDS another big physical threat, so we can really see his powers.

Malekith isn't it

Malekith being the main villain doesn't exclude Amora and Skruge just as Loki being the main villain didn't exclude Laufey or The Destroyer in the first movie.

Exactly.
Don't know why people keep thinking this is an either-or villain/battle. Feige has already said it takes place in *multiple* worlds, and Malekith is just one of many villains Thor will likely run into. I fully believe this will be a grand tour of (at least part of) The Nine Realms, and a showcase of Thor's classic (non-terrestrial) villains.

Even though I'm sure people wanted to see the Executioner alongside the Enchantress in order to give Thor a adversary that could challenge his strength, just because we got Malekith instead, doesn't mean that we won't get Thor being pushed to his limits.

If my knowledge serves me correct, Malekith is also closely associated with "Kurse":



Quote:
Kurse possesses a number of superhuman attributes as a result of his natural dark elf physiology and mystical augmentation. Kurse's main advantage against foes is his strength - while initially a close match for Thor, his strength was first increased to twice,[volume & issue needed] and then four times, that of Thor.[volume & issue needed] Courtesy of enchanted armor that was fused to his skin by the Beyonder, Kurse is now almost totally invulnerable but like all Dark Elves is vulnerable to the element iron. Kurse also has the ability to sense and track his opponents over distances as great as continents and can see through illusions and disguises. His armor is a living, sentient, and enchanted armor that allows Kurse to see everything around him.
Source: Wikipedia


Plus; from what I read, Malekith is also connected with "Surtur", as I read that he supposedly made a deal with Loki on behalf of the character. Just like how Iron Man 3 is set to have Tony go up against his archenemy Mandarin, we could have Thor 3 deal with Thor going up against Surtur, with Dark World being the precursor to that.

You're right it would be awesome to see Thor go up against Kurse, but I don't think I'm ready to see Thor's ass "handed" to him yet.

Having someone that gives him a good match is one thing, but Kurse pretty much stomped his ass everytime they've fought.

True, though the film could handle it differently, after all, the MCU is where Thor was able to defeat the destroyer, a villain that I've been told has been much more difficult for Thor to defeat in the comics...in a matter of minutes in the film.

Plus, even if they keep Kurse's strength the same way that it is in the comics, so far, Thor is the only Avenger imho that hasn't been taken to his limit yet imho. I'm still in the group of people who thinks that Thor didn't give all that he could have against his solo fights/battles with Loki because he was holding back in hopes of convincing his brother to change his mind. And when Thor did decide to unleash hell, Loki would be either subdued like in their first battle, or find a way to weasel out before things got interesting.

Plus, he was the only Avenger during the big city battle that wasn't shown being put in a situation where he came off as exhausted or looked as though that he was going to handle his ass defeated to him. By all accounts, Thor has been presented as one of the most powerful beings in the known MCU.lol

He was injured when Loki stabbed him with those Asgardian weapons. Also, when he landed with the other Avengers in the street he stumbled against the car as if he were in pain.
