Christopher Eccleston is Now the Big Baddie in Thor: The Dark World

It’s looks as though Thor: The Dark World has traded a Bond villain for a Time Lord! Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) was originally rumored to be playing Thor’s nemesis Malekith the Accursed, but now Deadline is reporting Christopher Eccleston is stepping into the role. Though we think of Eccleston here mostly as the Ninth Doctor of Doctor Who, he’s played bad guys before in 28 Days Later and G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra

Now he’s nose-to-nose with the God of Thunder. Maybe if we’re lucky, Eccleston’s Malekith will make it to Avengers 2. 


Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Tor.com and is aware of Thor’s involvement in the Time War.

Don't forget he was also the villain from Gone in 60 Seconds...

I think I was just flagged for spam, sorry moderator!

Meant to just post a link to google pics of Raymond Calitri from Gone in 60 Seconds...

My interest in this movie just increased tenfold. I've loved Eccleston since Shallow Grave.

Malekith the Accursed. Hmm. Can they get Walt Simonson to write the script?
