OH MY GOD YES
I APPROVE THIS
“This adventure…I like it. ANOTHER!”
Rupert Graves is going to be in an episode of Doctor Who this season. Benedict Cumberbatch is in the new Star Trek Movie. Christopher Eccleston is gonna be the villain in Thor 2.
It’s like everyone accidentally walked into the wrong classroom and are too British and polite to leave the lecture.
As originally reported by Deadline, Eccleston is officially joining next year’s Asgardian sequel Thor: The Dark World. And as Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige hinted back in May, Eccleston will be playing a new villain drawn from Thor‘s comic book mythology: Malekith the Accursed.
Malekith was created by the great Thor writer-artist Walt Simonson back in the ’80s. He rules the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, one of the Nine Realms mentioned in the first Thor movie. Svartalfheim could be the “Dark World” of the sequel’s subtitle (although there’s another theory that the “Dark World” refers to the Asgardian underworld.) In his original comic book incarnation, Malekith allied himself with Thor’s brother/nemesis Loki and wound up controlling the Casket of Ancient Winters, an object of immense power which can bring down the infinite cold of yet another Realm: the frigid Niflheim. (Don’t worry, all these names will sound awesome when Anthony Hopkins says them.)It’s unclear how much of Malekith’s original story will be present in The Dark World. The character was actually an envoy for one of the great Big Bads in Thor’s history: the fire demon Surtur, a creature so massively powerful that he seems more like a potential threequel villain.
is a Whovian
I have become a fan of the Midgardian bebecee show “Doctor Who”.
It is quite good.
SEGUE OF THE WEEK: “Btw, I like your TARDIS.” Fellow Whovian Kenneth Branagh tells Craig Ferguson he can’t pick a favorite, he likes all the Doctors (he thinks Matt Smith is “very good”). Craig Ferguson returns that his favorite monster is a Dalek (we knew that already). He also enjoys talking about Daleks. And Karen Gillan.
