Christopher Eccleston In Talks To Play THOR: THE DARK WORLD Villain

Christopher Eccleston has enough geek cred built up from his time as Doctor Who, his work on Heroes, and his bringing Destro to life on the big screen in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra that he doesn’t ever need to take another genre role and he will still be worshiped as a geek good at comic shops and sci-fi conventions around the world.  But when he is rumored to become involved as a comic book film, his fans let loose a little squeal of joy.

Deadline is reporting that Eccleston has been cast in the role of Malekith the Accursed, the main villain in Thor: The Dark World. We spoke a bit about the character here.

Of course, we should hold our breathe a bit until that information is officially confirmed. After all, Deadline were the ones who originally reported that Jessica Biel was definitely cast as Viper in The Wolverine. But if it is true, the sequel will be getting a great actor with the gravitas to play the role.
