Ninth Doctor to Play Malekith the Acursed in Thor 2!
In a brilliant bit of casting, Doctor Who alum Christopher Eccelston has been tapped to play the a villain in the upcoming Thor sequel, Thor: The Dark World. This also confirms the rumors that the Dark Elves as at least a co-villain in the next movie. Ill be honest, I dont know much about Malekith, but per Wikipedia:
As a dark elf, Malekith also has the ability to manipulate the forces of magic for a variety of effects, including teleportation, energy projection, physical malleability, flight (by transforming into mist), illusion casting, and the ability to change the shape and appearance of other beings or objects
He also appears to have a history with Loki, so I think its safe to assume that the two get together and form some nefarious plot to take down Asgard, Midgard, Svartalfheim (home of the dark elves) or some combination of the three… or they could be out to steal the Infinity Gauntlet from Odin’s treasure room (See the first Thor movie). Thanos has to get his hands on it some how right?
Thor: The Dark World is set to be released on November 8th, 2013
