Will The Enchantress be the main villain in the sequel to Marvel's Thor?

May. 22, 2012by:

Aside from the directing chair shuffle of Patty Jenkins (MONSTER) for Alan Tayler (Game of Thrones) we haven't heard a whole Hell of a lot from the THOR 2 camp. We know that Chris Hemsworth is returning to the titular role, as well as Tom Hiddleston as his conniving brother, Loki and that the film will focus on the relationships between Thor and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) as well as the dynamic between the two brothers.

Well, according to sources for Bleeding Cool, The Enchantress is most certainly in the film...but does that mean she'll be the main villain?

"Some of it we have to keep under wraps for now, but I can say, and with the utmost confidence, that you should expect to see The Enchantress in the film."

Fans of the comic will know that The Enchantress (also known as Amora) and Loki work in cahoots on a regular basis and that she has a certain affinity for the God of Thunder. She 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

Could this be more of Marvel's frameworking at play, leading to the next Avengers event? Anything's possible at this juncture as Marvel is keeping details sparse on the Thunder God's sequel.  Currently, Robert Rodat is working on a rewrite and filming is expected to begin in London this summer.

THOR 2 is slated to open on November 15, 2013

Extra Tidbit: You know the drill...Time to cast The Enchantress. I'm going with Alice Eve.

Nathan Fillon.

Sorry, I caught the JoBlo knee-jerk casting reaction. His name just comes out automatically for everything now.

Perfect casting. She is as equally hot as she is badass. Still a shame that they decided to kill Sarah's memories in Chuck.

I'm going to suggest Eva Green, who has the looks and acting ability to really make the character interesting.

Joblo needs to do an official 'Cast This' for Enchantress ASAP! However, if there isn't going to be an official 'Cast This', then I'd like to pick either Maggie Grace or Laura Ramsey for Enchantress right now.

I might be nuts, but I thought immediately of Kate Winslet. She certainly has the...frame... for it and given the pedigree of the actors in these films I think she would be a great addition. Hiddleston was amazing in The Avengers, and the thought of them teaming up to chew the scenery and take on the God of Thunder is pretty cool.

Diane Kruger would be perfect. She's gorgeous, she can act, and she has the look. I'm hoping the sequel is better and the fight at the end isn't as anticlimactic like it was in the first.

Lena Headey or Eva Green. And for the porn or The Asylum version: Sasha Grey. Because lets face it, there will be a parody.

GOOD

But there are other Asgardians I'd like to see.. If we go the Aliens way instead of actual GODS, I guess we can't have Hela... BUT WHERE THE FUCK IS BALDER ? He's the closest thing to a brother (aside from Loki) Thor ever had and SHOULD BE IN A THOR MOVIE !

I like Alice Eve too...

She's got the body to fill out that costume, she's beautiful, and she's english, so we wouldn't have to worry about her butchering the accent. I'm just not sure she could hold her own when it comes to fight scenes.

especially since Alan Taylor is directing I wouldn't be surprised to see someone from GoT.

I love it!!!

...also, not trying to knock the girl in the photo, because she is rather cute, but The Enchantress is supposed to be WAYYYYYY Hotter than that. Plus the headpiece looks pretty cheesy. I know of course that this isn't what the movies finished product will look like, but I think a better cos-play photo could have been used....or maybe not?

Also, no joking around, I actually think a porn star with some good acting lessons could be the best pick for The Enchantress. Think about it, full buxom blonde with sexual appeal and desire.....just sayin'.

One question for the Thor comic fans.. was Loki the only main Villain? I mean.. the whole brother thing.. again? For the 3rd time?

I think Diane Kruger is gorgeous but I don't want her to be Entrantress. She is too cute and I don't like rooting for villains. Alice Eve will do just fine.

Guess I'm the only one who doesn't like a Female Villain, at least as the "Main Villain". i always find something lacking substance when that is the case, and i can't get passed it.

As long as she is not the lead Villain I'm good with this.
