It must be Christopher Eccleston week around here. Not only have I just finished re-watching his season of Doctor Who for the umpteenth time (and planning a Femme 9th Doctor cosplay), but there’s a rumor that he doesn’t hate Doctor Who as much as we originally thought and he’s been cast as the villain in Thor 2.
According to Deadline.com, Eccleston has been pegged to portray Malekith The Accursed opposite in Thor: The Dark World. For those of you not familiar with the comic, he is a super-villain, the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim. He also once wielded something called the Casket of Ancient Winters.
Obviously, he’s going to be fantastic, simply fantastic.
