With Iron Man 3 set for an early May release, does anyone see Thor 2 being brought forward to July?

Thor 2 was moved to November. Fanible should re-edit the thread title.

Christopher Eccleston has been set for the villain role in Marvel Studios’ Thor: The Dark World, starring opposite Chris Hemsworth in the role of Malekith The Accursed. If you don’t know who Malekith is, your Hall H privileges at Comic-Con are officially suspended. He is a super-villain in the Marvel Universe, the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim. In the Marvel Comics, he clashed mightily with Thor, and will go up against the hammer-wielding god of Odin in the film directed by Game of Thrones‘ Alan Taylor. He once wielded the Casket of Ancient Winters. We know Eccleston from Doctor Who, and he is repped by Principal Entertainment.

Guess my Hall H privileges are suspended...

I was never into Thor when I read comics so I have no idea if this is a good sign or not.

Look how Mike Fleming tries to connect with a comic con audience. Who read Thor comics? Nobody!

Thor has been around since the 60s. Someone must have read it.

I have a friend who read it religiously, while I only bought it when something interesting happened - I liked Beta Ray Bill

I've read Thor on and off since I started reading comics. He's had some good runs (the current volume is actually quite good).

Malekith hasn't been around for a long time.... haven't actually read any of his stories but know some of the history, he's definately a major Thor villain but I doubt he'll be the only one. I'm guessing Malekith takes on the Loki role for the film and we'll also see someone like Kurse show up.

Variety is reporting that actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be taking on two villain roles, sort of, for the upcoming Marvel Studios film Thor: The Dark World. He will be portraying Algrim the Strong and Kurse.

Algrim first appeared in Thor #347 and was one of the most powerful of the dark elves. He is given the task of killing Thor by Malekith the Accursed (set to be played by Christopher Eccleston). He is betrayed by Malekith who tries to kill Thor by allowing both the god of thunder and Algrim to fall to their deaths. While both survived, Algrim developed amnesia from the event and is transformed into the much more powerful being Kurse.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has appeared on screen in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, The Bourne Identity, and played Mr. Eko on "Lost."

Thor: The Dark World reunites Chris Hemsworth with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Natalie Portman as the love interest Jane Foster. Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones") is stepping behind the camera for its November 8, 2013 release date.

Although I prefer it to Captain America, both are still completely and entirely forgettable.

Portman's Jane Foster wasn't very strong, but the script didn't give her much to work with. Besides, I can look at Natalie all day. She just has a way about her.

I'll admit that Loki was kinda weak as the villain of Thor. Instead of being a power mad, would be king who'd looked into the abyss as we saw in The Avengers, Loki was only a mischievous son looking to find his father's favor and remove the favorite son, Thor from the picture. He never came off as a real threat, but instead merely misguided.

Thor & Captain America are good movies. They're not the genre's best... but they're not the worst either. If you're a Marvel fan, there's lots to enjoy. If you're not, then why even be in this thread.

I'm really excited for this, although I'll admit I'm a little surprised so little has been revealed about this. I kinda wonder if maybe they weren't quite sure what to do with the character for his second solo venture.

Thor has been a constant presence in the Marvel Universe since 1962. There's more than enough material to draw inspiration from for a film trilogy.
