First look at Eccleston as Malekith


Yeah we’ve got some behind the scenes shots of the 9th Doctor, aka, Christopher Eccleston on set of the new Thor movie and it isn’t pretty. For those of you who didn’t know Eccleston is undertaking the role of Malekith, a Dark Elf who has not only battled against Thor many times but in some stories has started out as a trusted ally.

Malekith has all the normal attributes of a member of the race of dark elves, although his abilities are as a result of above-average development. He possesses superhuman intellect, strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes.
As a dark elf, Malekith also has the ability to manipulate the forces of magic for a variety of effects, including teleportation, energy projection, physical malleability, flight (by transforming into mist), illusion casting, and the ability to change the shape and appearance of other beings or objects.

Malekith has a vulnerability to iron, which disrupts or cancels his magical spells.

Thor: The Dark World is due for release November 8th 2013!
