Has Thor 2 found its villain?

Casino Royale's Mads Mikkelsen looks set to sign up to do battle with Thor...

With production underway on the first Marvel movie of 2013, Iron Man 3, it’s soon going to be the turn of Thor 2 to head before the cameras. Thor 2 arrives half a year after Iron Man 3, with a current release date of November 15th 2013. And already we know that Chris Hemsworth is reprising the title role, and that Natalie Portman, Idris Elba and Jaimie Alexander are all back, too.

But who will be playing the villain? Well, according to Variety, it’s Mads Mikkelsen who is on the project’s radar. Mikkelsen has villainous form, of course, having played Le Chiffre in Casino Royale.

Mikkelsen’s exact role in Thor 2 has yet to be confirmed, however. But we do know that Game Of Thrones’ Alan Taylor is directing the film.
