Watch the villainous Malekith awaken in this clip from Thor: The Dark World!

10.15.2013

We all know that a villain can make or break a movie. Thus far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe we've seen our heroes contend with some interesting (and controversial) villains. From IRON MAN's Obediah Stane, IRON MAN 2's Whiplash, IRON MAN 3's Mandarin (kind of) CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER's Red Skull, THOR's Loki, and THE AVENGERS'...Loki again, we now have a new baddie on the chopping block for THOR: THE DARK WORLD with Malekith, the dark elf played by Christopher Eccleston, who is a maniacal mofo in the comics and a serious thorn in the God of Thunder's side. Today, IGN debuted a clip from the latest Marvel film, showing the awakening of Malekith, which caused me to get a little giddy in seeing a new Marvel villain grace the big screen.

Awaken:

Although Loki will play a large role in THOR: THE DARK WORLD and will likely turn against Thor at some point (there's never a time he doesn't in the comics) I'm hoping to see more from Malekith and a venture into the wider universe of the nine realms, which can easily bring forth a number of Thor's foils from the past. I have a good feeling that the book will be closed on Loki for a while after THOR: THE DARK WORLD and I think that's the right move and a consistent one with Marvel lore. There's nothing like "killing someone off" and bringing them back later in the game.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD, starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Christopher Eccleston, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard, Jamie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Rene Russo, and Kat Dennings hits theaters on November 8, 2013.

IMPORTANT SPOILER WARNING. Please read.

Just wanted to let whoever is reading these comments know, that there is a potential spoiler a few posts below this one, by a complete jerk called ravibmaharaj. Whatever that means. I mean come on, it looks like when he had to come up with a user name he just smashed the keyboard against the side of his head. Anyways, just trying to pad this message out a bit so be aware that there is a potential spoiler for Thor: The Dark World coming up. So, wait for it....

i'm really hoping that the comicon footage with loki chopping of thor's arm is just a psych out, and will be one of loki's tricks in the film. he could just be using one of his magical projections to trick and distract malekith, while thor is actually elsewhere, getting stuff done. if anyone deserves a bit of redemption it's loki. marvel is playing up the fact that loki too prominently in the promos, which really makes me believe that loki doesn't betray thor (and maybe even sacrifices himself

Badass elf! I'm really liking the evolving designs in science fiction films lately. This fusion of technology/organic matter is looking very cool. Prometheus, Superman's Krypton, even Green Lantern had some awesome designs. I wonder what Nolan's Interstellar and Pfister's Transcendence will come up with.

This film looks better in every way imaginable than the first (and I loved the first one). Love how they're expanding the Nine Realms into the Marvel Universe.

And I do hope we get some genuine heartfelt scenes with Thor and Loki since there relationship is the best part about the Thor films (at least in my opinion).
