The initial instalment of the Thor films has been surprisingly successful, and with the sequel set for release next year, who’s going to be the villain?
The bad, bad man to try to vanquish Thor and his crew is Marvel’s Malekith, who will be portrayed by Christopher Eccleston. The actor is best known for his role as the ninth reincarnation of the Doctor on popular British television series Doctor Who.
If you’re not a comic book fanatic, Eccleston’s character Malekith the Accursed (epic, right?) is the ruler of the Dark Elves. Beyond possessing superhuman intellect, strength and speed, Malekith also has the ability to manipulate the forces of magic. We think Eccleston can pull off a creepy supernatural creature full of eeeevil.
What do you think? Is Ecceston right for the part?
