So far, the only real addition to the upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World lies solely with Christopher Eccleston as he takes his role as new antagonist Malekith the Accursed. With filming set to kick off though, there have been very few developments other than previously rumored story details regarding The Dark Elves that have likely been proven to be true at this point. Natalie Portman and Jaimie Alexander are still the only females who will be gracing Asgard in the sequel, with Kat Dennings looking unavailable thanks to her commitment to CBS' 2 Broke Girls. Now, it seems we'll have one more woman to join the cast except she might not exactly be playing on the side of the heroes.
CBM reports that multiple sources have told them Alice Krige has scored a small role in Thor: The Dark World in an undetermined role, adding that "she may not be recognizable in the role". Judging by that description, it means Krige would play a character either heavily under CGI or some type of makeup. With that in mind, the site goes on to speculate that the actress could be playing Alflyse, the queen of the Dark Elves and the Svartalfheim realm.
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Portman, Eccleston, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Alexander, Zachary Levi, Stellan Skarsgard, Ray Stevenson and more, Thor: The Dark World picks up where The Avengers left off as war-criminal Loki is looking for revenge against his father and brother while still exploring the God of Thunder's devotion for both Odin and Earth love interest Jane Foster.
Filming is scheduled to begin soon in London under the direction of new helmer Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) and is scheduled to possibly venture across Europe in order for the film to achieve more scenic shots. Previous reports have also claimed that the sequel will be shooting underground in order to portray the dim locale for The Dark Elves.
Krige is best known for her role as the Borg Queen in the film Star Trek: First Contact, which she reprised her role for in the final episode of Star Trek: Voyager and The Borg Invasion 4-D attraction at Las Vegas' Star Trek: The Experience. She has also appeared in TV series Deadwood, The 4400, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Six Feet Under.
Thor: The Dark World is set to hit theaters on November 8th, 2013.
