    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.

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

    *cough, cough*


    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?!?!

    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.

    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":

    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.

    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.

    I really don't know anything about Thor's villains but Malekith sounds interesting from the bit I read and Eccleston is good casting.

    It'll definitely be a breath of fresh air to see a villain focused on that isn't Loki regarding Thor.lol

    All of the other avengers, sans Hawkeye and BW, have been shown on screen to have battled other villains (primarily from their own rogues' gallery) before meeting Loki, but Loki is ever the only villain that we've seen Thor really have to deal with since he never really battled against Laufey.

    And Marvel continues to cast fantastic actors for their roles. Eccleston is going to rock as Malekith.

    Atleast Christopher Eccleston will have better material to work with than his last fantasy movie The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising
