The Doctor vs. Thor. I love when geek worlds collide or, more accurately, when actors crossover from one geeky thing to another. In this case, Christopher Eccleston, who you might know as the Ninth Doctor in Doctor Who, is set to play the role of the main bad guy in Thor: The Dark World. He’ll be playing Malekith the Accursed, a dark elf. Actually he’s the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim (trying saying that five times fast). Though I’m not familiar with the villain, I have a hunch Eccleston will knock it out of the park.
Besides Who, Eccleston has been in Heroes, The Others, and 28 Days Later. He’s a fantastic actor, and I loved his portrayal of the Doctor. He played the Doctor while the character was going through one of his darker periods and because of the way he handled that, I think he’ll make an excellent villain. And I hope he has to wear elf ears.
