Christopher Eccleston cast in Thor 2

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, 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.

    He was also quite disturbing as the “trying to do the right thing here”, female kidnapper/breeder in “28 Days Later”. That’s when he really caught my eye. He could be Ralf Fiennes twin bro!

    I just hope they don’t rush this movie and skimp on the
    quality.  Branagh set the bar very high,
    so now I would like to see it moved a little higher.  Perhaps we can see better matt paintings, or
    total CGI for the backgrounds of Asgard, along with the same awesome castle
    sets as before.  Speaking of Thor, my kids
    lost my Blu-ray copy, so I just sent for it from my Blockbuster @Home.  My Dish coworker came over to watch all of The
    Avengers prequel movies, just before seeing The Avengers.  Blockbuster @Home really is the best way to
    get my Blu-ray movies for the least amount of money, and I can keep the movie
    as long as I want to without overage fees.

    Wow, you’re just overloading my *squee* quotient today Robin. I missed this one totally. Can’t wait.
