It seems like the chief co-ordinator of evil and badness in Thor 2: The Dark World is set to be Malekith the Accursed, as played by Christopher Eccleston. Will this deny the naughty-naughty Loki a role? And if he does have a part, how big will it be?
Our first clue seems to come from a tiny news report on the Icelandic website, Visir. They say a crowd of 500 helped shoot a big battle scene between Thor and Loki in Iceland this week.
Sounds like a big scene, even if it’s all Loki has to do in the whole movie. I hope he gets to do more, but I’m just glad he at least gets to do this.
For further confimation that Tom Hiddleston was actually in Iceland and Visir weren’t just jumping to a faulty conclusion, there’s this tweet:
Sometimes the answer is to climb the nearest mountain and everything is better. Literally. Not a metaphor. #iceland

Our first confirmation that Loki will be in Thor 2? I think so.
