'Thor 2' villains revealed?

It seems we now know who’ll be feeling the thud of Thor’s hammer in Marvel’s upcoming sequel. In an interview with I Review Too, stuntman James Grogan spilled a few choice beans about his experience of working on Thor: The Dark World...

“I had a load of stunt guys in and the director came in and he said
Look, we want you all to be elves, and I was like What the hell is an elf anyway? and he said I want you all to walk around like these supernatural animals, honestly it was the most ridiculous thing ever but you just have to not be self aware and get on with it.

The Marvel Universe features both good and bad elves, but it seems a fair guess that Thor: The Dark World will be more interested in the latter variety. There has also been speculation that Mads Mikkelsen will play the Dark Elf leader Malekith the Accursed, who is gifted with the powers of teleportation, energy projection and shape-shifting.

The Dark Elves of the Marvel Universe are native to Svartalfheim– the seventh world of Asgard. It exists on an extradimensional plane that consists of major land masses which can be reached via nexus portals.

Thor: The Dark World is currently in pre-production. The script has been penned by Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan). Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) is on directing duties. The movie is slated for release on November 2013.
