Mads Mikkelsen to fill the Asgardian shoes of another villain in Thor 2

May. 24, 2012by: Niki Stephens

"Double the villains, double the fun" is the theme for today, I suppose. Not to be outdone by talks of a second baddie in IRON MAN 3, it is now being revealed that the rumors were true. There will be another villain in THOR 2.

I have no issues on this, especially since Mads Mikkelsen is in talks currently to take on the role. Actually, I'm doing my happy dance right now. You've seen Mikkelsen in such films as CASINO ROYALE, VALHALLA RISING, CLASH OF THE TITANS, and many others.

Variety says that it is "unknown at this time" which role he will take on, but I think it's pretty obvious. As we noted in our article about the recent possibility of The Enchantress being the main villain in the second installment, it seems that our hunch about The Executioner getting some screen time might be more than just a hunch.

Let's re-cap The Executioner info from Paul's article: "She [The Enchantress] is also typically partnered with the villain known as The Executioner, which could also be a lead to who we may see in the sequel. To take speculation further, The Enchantress and The Executioner were banished to Earth by Odin at one point, where they teamed up with a number of supervillains to form The Masters of Evil, which act as a kind of "antithesis" to THE AVENGERS."

Don't worry. Tom Hiddleston will be back as Loki, too.

Extra Tidbit: And yes, there will be a "Cast This" for The Enchantress next week.

Unusual choice

I dig Mads, however when I look at those images of the Executioner, someone who looks like Mikkelsen is not the first person that comes to mind.

Mads the Man, and he can fill great shoes for this movie to even out Thor and Loki.

I don't get why people would get sick of Loki. In the comics villains return multiple times so I like that they are doing that with the films.

But the addition of The Enchantress and
The Executioner is excellent.

Mads was born to be a terrifying villain

I mean, his parents must knew he'd own the villain roles one day when they gave him such a badass name! His attachment as the main baddie is ALWAYS a big plus for me.

That's fine with me as long as they introduce Fear or Kang so they can set up the villain for the third. Anyone else reading the Fear Itself arc right now?

Great casting. Great character, if its true. Tired of Loki. Bring on Kurse or the Midgard Serpent or Surtur or Fafnir or Malekith or blahblahblah

Is anybody else sick of Loki already? He's been beaten twice. It's almost as bad as using Green Goblin in almost every Spider-Man movie.

Is he going to have any Norse supernatural origin? Because, while I still haven't caught up with Thor yet, I'm pretty sure they completely bypassed casting any Scandinavians aside from Stellan Skarsgard in that movie. And as a fan of the films coming out of that region, I was rather surprised.

Anyway, love Mads Mikkelsen in pretty much everything. Love Tonny, loved him in "The Green Butchers," loved him in "After the Wedding" and "Casino Royale" and "Valhalla Rising." Overall just a great

Awesome! He was great in Casino Royale and Valhalla Rising, but I will always remember him from the Pusher films. If you haven't seen them check'em out. Brilliant.
