Impossible! GeekShizzle is dying to see Thor 2 and they expect us to wait until November!? We are feeling the energy and excitement building up as we are moving slowly towards the release date of one the most anticipated movies this year. We have the occasional desktop background pic to remind us of the release date.

The “Gone in 60 Seconds” and “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” actor Christopher Eccleston, will have to pull out all the stops as the depicter of the villain in Thor 2, Malekith the Accursed. Malekith’s outfit and more importantly his weapon of destruction has been revealed in a picture from Empire magazine (source: Redzilla). As the trailer unfolds the premise of the upcoming Marvel film, Malekith will be challenging to defeat, even the assistance of Loki (the adoptive brother and archenemy of Thor) will be required. Setting the bar for a high profile villain, the outfit and weapon (dark-matter energy gun) is fitting for the merciless Dark Elf.

“Thor: The Dark World” is set one year after The Avengers, Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. A primeval race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to plunge the universe into darkness. Confronted by an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot overcome, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and set out on a dangerous journey that will force him to make the ultimate sacrifice.
