Thor II: The Dark World, begins production and principal shooting later this month so we can expect some last minute casting news as things firm up and contracts are signed.
It’s now confirmed that actress Alice Krige has landed a small role (Her words) in the Alan Taylor-directed film. Krige also said that she may not be recognizable in the film, meaning some impressive makeup or prosthetics, much like her role as the “Borg Queen” in Star Trek: First Contact and the Star Trek: Voyager series.
Many people are thinking that with Christopher Eccleston confirmed as Malekith the Accursed, the ruler of Svartalfheim, that Alice Krige would be playing Alflyse, the queen of the Dark Elves and the Svartalfheim realm. Below is a picture, doesn’t seem like there would be much makeup involved that would make Krige unrecognizable does it?
After checking out the available pictures of Alflyse on the Internet, this NerdBastard would like to throw out another character that might make an appearance in the film, Death. Remember the Thanos appearance at the end of The Avengers? Perhaps Krige might play the purple robed Death that Thanos is in love with.
Although most of the time Death has a skull face as shown in the picture below from the Death of Captain Marvel Graphic novel.
Then again there is the role of Hela, the Asgardian Goddess of death. With Thor traveling the Nine Realms in Thor II: The Dark World there is a distinct possibility that he will run into Hela at one point or another.
What do you think? Is there another character that might fit the bill?
Thor: The Dark World stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Stellan Skarsgard and Ray Stevenson and is set for release on November 8, 2013.
