Mads Mikkelsen In Talks For Thor 2
As a villain... But which one?

Mads Mikkelsen In Talks For Thor 2

Double dip day over at the Marvel casting offices continues with word that Thor 2 is in the process of recruiting a new villain. Not content with taking on James Bond in Casino Royale, Mads Mikkelsen is in talks to tangle with Asgard’s favourite son in the superhero sequel.

What this means is that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki will crop up very briefly, then be seen disappearing over a golden cliff in a ball of flame…. JUST KIDDING, HIDDLESTONERS! According to Variety, everyone’s favourite god of mischief will still be causing problems for everyone, but if Mikkelsen locks in a deal, Loki’ll have some help.

Exactly which villain Mikkelsen is up for has yet to be revealed. Thor has an extensive rogues gallery, so he could be anything – Executioner, Mangog, Mephisto… Give us your best guess in the comments below or in the Twitsphere.

Most of the original cast are scheduled to return alongside Empire Award-winner / Army leader Hiddleston, including Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Joshua Dallas and Rene Russo.

Game Of Thrones veteran Alan Taylor is directing, working from a script by Don Payne and Robert Rodat. The film will hit our screens in November 2013.

Great news. Loved the first one: Maads is a brilliant actor. One great thing + another great thing always =  2 x a great thing.............right? More

A Great underused actor!
Mikklesen is an excellent actor and to be honest I am growing tired of Hiddlestone's Loki and feel his presence would be a breath of fresh air. He is one of the best Bond villian's and the meanest and badest Viking in Valhalla Rising. A much underused actor who deserves more recognition! More

Watch out Hemsworth ... he'll rip your guts out.

Actaully I was more angry than scared; I do not take kindly to any slight against Hiddleston; HIDDLESTONERS LET THEM HAVE IT! More

Mads plays a great villain. I thought Casino Royal fell apart when he got killed off. More

He's certainly pretty handy with a sword. More
