I hope not. Last thing I saw him in was GI Joe and he sucked in that.

If this is true.. then this movie just got that much more exciting.

He's an amazing actor. Judging him based on G.I. Joe is hardly fair.

he was a good doctor, but I have seen him in 2 things and he only did well in one which is why I am wary.

Doctor Who is more than enough to place him leagues above most other actors.

@ZombieBigfoot: True, but the success of Thor and the Avengers puts it above many other films.

@The_Thunderer: That's a little bit besides the point. Eccleston proved his acting skill with The Doctor, who is an incredibly complex character to pull off correctly. I have no doubt that he can pull off Malekith well, if not superbly.

And just like that, Doctor Who and the Marvel movie-verse became canon with one another.

What a glorious day.

eccleston seems much better suited than madds which makes me wonder if he was supposed to play kurse.

That's actually... a brilliant choice for Malekith.
