Deadline has just revealed that Christopher Eccleston will play the Thor 2 villain, Malekith The Accursed.

You most likely know Eccleston from his role as the ninth Doctor Who, but he’s also known for playing a mobster in Gone in 60 Seconds opposite Nicolas Cage. As for the Marvel villain he will play, the dark-elf ruler Malekith The Accursed is a super-villain in the Marvel Universe.

We think Christopher Eccleston is an incredible choice for the next villain to battle the god of thunder in Thor: The Dark World and we look forward to seeing him on the big screen again.

UPDATED: Christopher Eccleston has responded to his recent casting:

“’Thor 2′? Yeah I start shooting in August. I haven’t seen a script yet which makes me nervous but yeah! Alan Taylor is directing who has done ‘Game of Thrones’ so it should be good.”

Thor: The Dark World is currently filming in London and will hit theaters November 8, 2013.
