The guys over at Stitch Kingdom have posted some really cool character bios for the upcoming superhero sequel Thor: The Dark World. They're slightly spoilery so beware, but it does show that there's going to be a lot more focus on the secondary characters this time round with the Warriors Three and Heimdall having much more prominent roles.
Thor 2 will also see the God of Thunder face a new and terrifying threat in the shape of Malekith () and Algrim/Kurse ().
Here are the bios for the new bad guys:
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.
Algrim/Kurse is Malekith’s trusted and loyal lieutenant. He fought at Malekith’s side during the initial war with Asgard thousands of years ago, but now their time is running out. Algrim is called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice and is transformed into the monstrous Kurse. With a new and terrifying power, Kurse seeks to destroy Thor and Asgard in preparation for Malekith’s arrival.
This movie is going to be epic and I really think it has a chance of being the best comic book movie of the year. If you want to check out the rest of the character bios, head over to Stitch Kingdom.
