The sequel to the 2011 movie will find Eccleston playing the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, who “clashes mightily” with everyone’s favorite hammer-wielding superhero, Deadline reports.
Alan Taylor will direct. Eccleston played Dr. Who in the first season of the rebooted sci-fi franchise, and has appeared in movies like “Gone in 60 Seconds,” “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” and “28 Days Later.”
What do you think of the casting? Is Eccleston a worthy villain?
