Chris Hemsworth will fight off Christopher Eccleston in Thor: The Dark World
With Mads Mikkelsen out of the picture, the villain in THOR: THE DARK WORLD needed to be filled so Thor (Chris Hemsworth) would have an opponent to fight, and it looks like Marvel has found their guy in Christopher Eccleston (28 DAYS LATER, G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA). Christopher Eccleston will play Malekith The Accursed who is a Dark Elf that is able to go between the worlds of the living and the dead. That opens up the plot for all kinds of interesting possibilities. Like who will Thor have to travel over into the death world to save? I’m sure we all know who that will be, here’s a hint, she’s cute brunette and has an Academy Award.
Directed by Alan Taylor, THOR: THE DARK WORLD will star: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard and now Christopher Eccleston. THOR: THE DARK WORLD is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8th, 2013. (Deadline)
