Marvel can make Heimdall the sibling of whoever they want.
Agreed. If an Asgardian can consider a Frost Giant to be his brother, then surely an Asgardian can consider another Asgardian to be her brother.

The bigger problem with Heimdall and Sif being siblings in the movies is that they are clearly of different generations. Heimdall is a peer of Odin, while Sif is a peer of Thor.

Out of curiosity, what elements give you the sense that Heimdall and Odin are of the same generation? (I'm not opposed to the idea, btw.)

When I read your post, I realized I had assumed Heimdall was in Sif's and Thor's cohort. So I wonder if there is something I missed. Thx.



(Obligatory shout-out to the thread topic: I'm sure Malekith will be happy to attack them both regardless of whether or not they are siblings )

It's not unheard of to have very different ages in siblings. Jeremy Renner's youngest brother is 40 years younger than him.

Yes, Malekith would be happy to attack anyone...hope he doesn't hook up with Thanos soon...

Question, for those who are well versed with Malekith's character in the comics, is he known to be more sinister than Loki is? Or are they about the same in terms of characterization?

I hate to say it, but Malekith is a joke in the comics. Even though he's a Simonson creation, he's a very minor character in a very major story arc that featured Surtur as the main villain. In the comics, Malekith looks and acts like an 80s glam rocker, and even his "Dark Elves" are jaw-droppingly silly as hell --- they're sometimes portrayed as tiny little gnomes (complete with requisite pointy hats and beards) instead of what D&D and Skyrim players tend to think of when they hear the term "Dark Elf."

I agree, which is why I said I never really cared for Malekith and several posters jumped down by throat.

I mainly care about Malekith because Christopher Eccleston is playing him hehe. But the likes of Kurse, Surtur, and Loki are far more interesting.

I would think Eccleston could bring something to Malekith that would make him a more interesting formidable villain, Here's hoping anyway.

Just a random thought, but there's a spoilerific report going around on CBM right now that's supposed to be from a stuntman on the sets of both Thor 2 and IM3, so spoilers ahoy for those who don't know or wanna know:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

Since Jane is supposed to be possessed by a "Dark Spirit" that's somehow attached to the Dark Elves, I'm wondering if that's supposed to be Malekith, and they're going to make him a spirit entity instead of his usual (physical and tangible) glam rocker self.

Ooo, interesting! I remember BigThor had mentioned Malekith could change into a mist, usually to escape. So maybe!

I bet it will be both! That would actually be really cool if that's the case.

I still hope Malekith looks somewhat like a glam rocker.

talk about Rock of ages :P

I'd read in another thread that Loki looks more like a rock star in this movie. Is he trying to outdo Malekith in the Heavy Metal style category? Tony Stark was right...he is a diva.

Yep, that's about right. Let's just get this out of the way right now and say that the man just needs a solo movie of his own.

Very mundane looking, clearly didn't want to go with the glam rock 80s look.
