Thor Eccleston Joins ‘Thor: The Dark World’ written by Sean Gerber August 2, 2012 According to Deadline, Christopher Eccleston (“Doctor Who”) is set to play the villain not named Loki in “Thor: The Dark World.” Eccleston is in final negotiations for the role of Malekith The Accursed, a character known from the pages of Marvel Comics as ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfeim. While many fans will say, “You made me at Eccleston,” the news of what character he will play is a positive sign that the “Thor” sequel will indeed be a more other-worldly affair.

Haven’t been able to watch it since they turned him into Dr. Cuteypie. Not familiar with this Malekith character. Hopefully will not require him to be buried in make-up.
