Casino Royale’s Mads Mikkelsen
in Talks to Play Thor 2 Villain
Going up against James Bond can be a difficult task. No matter what you throw at that guy, he tends to come out on top. So, what does it take to make someone go from tussling with Bond to throwing down with Thor? Well, screen time and money, we’d imagine. Actor Mads Mikkelsen, who played Le Chiffre in Casino Royale, as well as roles in The Three Musketeers and Clash of the Titans, is in talks with Marvel to hone his villain chops once again, this time in Thor 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Mikkelsen’s unidentified character will team up with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, who tormented Thor in the first film and again in this summer’s ridiculously successful Avengers. Aside from some changes in the director’s chair, with Games of Thrones‘ Alan Taylor eventually taking over, and most of the original cast returning, very little is known about the film. As of now, Thor 2 is set to hit theaters Nov. 15, 2013.
