    I know, I know what everyone else is saying. And that I don't remember who it was that said this, but he said Thor will probably be touring the 9 worlds and meeting some of his classic villians.

    Based on the title of the movie (dark "WORLD"...not worlds) and based on the fact that fiege said they were using a big new villain, not villains, leads me to believe there will be but one "Thor villain", primarily and one, maybe two other worlds.

    I want enchantress and executioner, I really do...I want to see other worlds, but I am sort of opening my eyes now, that is just wishful thinking.

    There is nothing said about this movie that could lead me to think we will see some of the other worlds, and other villains as well. It's been basically the opposite. Until I hear anything else, there will be two primary worlds in this movie. Asgard, and where ever the elves are from. With maybe some other brief appearances of other worlds showing up.

    Edit: I do think Kurse will be a major villian as well. Which I am okay with that then :D

    So...what I get from this news is basically...Marvel actually knows what it is doing with their movies.

    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.

    True, but in the long run, it didn't seem to hamper his ability to kick ass and he was still able to lay the smackdown on Loki after getting stabbed.

    when Thor was coming out I was expecting/hoping for something along the lines of Gladiator or Braveheart. But when you watch the movie you can tell it was made for kids.

    Welcome. I suggest watching the movie because you'll get a good feel for what a good villain he can be.

    The casting call for extras is basically PROOF that they're journeying to multiple worlds. The call is for people who can play with fire; for ugly and misshapen freaks of nature; heavily tattooed men and women; 18-50 year olds with military experience; and girls with hot bodies who are comfortable wearing bikinis on set.

    *None* of that screams "Dark Elves," incidentally. However, it definitely seems to peg Fire Demons, Frost Giants, Rock Trolls, and possibly even Valkyries. Beyond the shadow of a doubt.

    So I read that as either (a) the movie takes place in SEVERAL of the Nine Realms; or (b) the villain is powerful enough and charismatic enough to unite thousands of warring tribes from all over the Nine Realms into a single cohesive unit. I personally don't see Malekith being a Dark Elf Napoleon.

    Yeah, I loved that band in 1986. They made Whitesnake and Stryper look like a bunch of *****es. :oldrazz:

    It kind of makes me think of Ted Danson in drag, but good attempt. :oldrazz:

    What can I say? I love the 80's :cwink:! I based it entirely on the original comic book rendition of the character. It's a given that the hairstyle has to change for the movie. Straight and well-coiffed isn't going to cut it though, LOTR and HB2's elves already look like that.

    Sounds great though I hope he doesn't use the casket of ancient winters because i don't want to see a villain with same powers as the last one. Like IM and IM2

    Noooo!!! The screen can't handle that much Scottish charm in one movie between him and Tom's 50% Scottish lineage!! Be prepared to hear Tom speaking with a Scottish accent in the future from being around Eccleston.

    P.S. I am going to resist making any Ninth Doctor comments. But he does have enough menace for the character I suppose. My favorite episode is Dalek and he's brilliant in that. I can see him as a three dimensional villain. This casting has me seriously excited.

    That's too literal.

    They're gonna dial it down a notch for the film. I doubt they keep the hair lookin' like something out of 80's hair metal cover band.

    Nice work regardless.

    Malekith the Accursed is a pretty admittedly badass name.

    Yeah, that's true. He did just look annoyed, especially after Loki escaped with those Aliens.

    Powercosmic, you know that avatar you have with SLJ in a pink bob?

    What if we saw that pink haircut in a trailer and he turned around and it was Malekith not Samuel L Jackson?

    That's the Nicki Minaj version of Samuel L Jackson.
