Christopher Eccleston To Play Malekith The Accursed In Thor: The Dark World

Christopher Eccleston To Play Malekith The Accursed In Thor: The Dark WorldNo more Doctor Nice Guy! Filming on Thor: The Dark World begins in five days, with Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Natalie Portman all reprising their roles, so it's time to throw a supervillain into the pot to warm things up a bit. That supervillain is Malekith the Accursed, and according to an announcement over at Deadline, he'll be wearing the face of Christopher Eccleston. Those familiar with the comics, feel free to start theorising about potential plot arcs now.

I feel it's a good choice. Aside from the fact that Eccleston's face is never boring to look at, he's already proved himself in a (sort of) villain role as Major West in 28 Days Later, though he's better known for being the Ninth Doctor in Doctor Who.

Also, he once played the second coming of Jesus. So, you know, don't mess with him.
