It seems like it's been awhile since we've had any kind of news on Thor: The Dark World. Lately it's all been about Iron Man 3, The Avengers 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Red Carpet News TV recently caught up with Loki actor Tom Hiddleston, and during the interview he praised Christopher Eccleston as the villain Malekith in the movie and talked about Loki'’s relationship to the Dark Elf saying,
Christopher Eccleston is one of Britain's greatest actors, he brings a degree of commitment, intelligence, conviction and complexity to everything he does. I think he really got his teeth into this thing [playing Malekith]. It's hard to say anything without giving away too much. Christopher has enormous presence, which is very distinguishable on stage as well as film. It's one of those things you can't really define, you just can't stop watching him when he's on screen. I think he'll be absolutely magnetic [in the movie]. Malekith has his own ambition. Whether or not Loki can coincide with or contradict, subvert or enhance that ambition remains to be seen.
He doesn't really say much, he obviously doesn't want to spoil anything, but it's good to hear that these villains are going to be bigger than life! The film is set to hit theaters on November 8th, 2013, and from what I've been hearing the movie is going to be even more epic than the first one. Here's the synopsis:
Marvel Studios’ Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
