Christopher Eccleston (television's "Doctor Who") has been cast as the central villain in "Thor: The Dark World".
The actor will reportedly portray Malekith the Accursed "the ruler of the Dark Elves who reside in Svartalfheim, one of Asgard's Nine Realms."
Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will appear in the film as well but it remains to be seen how he and Malekith will interact, if at all.
Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige had the following to say about the film "We're going to take Thor literally to other worlds -It will primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster and how the new dynamic with his father is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds."
Eccleston joins a cast that includes Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Idris Elba, Zachary Levi and Stellan Skarsgard.
"Thor: The Dark World" opens in AMC Theatres on November 8th, 2013.
