The studio also released an official character description of the Big Bad, played by DOCTOR WHO’s Christopher Eccleston:
“Malekith is the cruel leader of the Dark Elves, a race of beings said to be older than the universe itself. Born into darkness, Malekith led his people in a war against the Asgardians, but they were thought to have been destroyed thousands of years ago. Malekith survived, however, and now seeks to transform our universe, plunging it back into eternal darkness.”
I’m liking the lifeless masks that the Dark Elves wear, and I’m really looking forward to this sequel’s Nov. 8 release.
