With The Avengers dominating the box office and news on Iron Man 3 making rounds online, Marvel’s Thor 2 has joined the fray with updates. Mads Mikkelsen is in talks with the studio to portray one of the villains in the movie.

Mikkelsen is no stranger to playing an antagonist, fulfilling that role in the movies Clash of the Titans and Casino Royale. For Thor 2, it’s unclear just who he’ll play.

Before anyone shows some concern, yes, Tom Hiddleston is returning as Loki. You can’t have a Thor film without Loki, of course.

You can also expect Thor 2 to have a different feel. Alan Taylor of popular show Game of Thrones will take over directing duties. So the movie will clearly be metal.

Thor 2 is scheduled for release November 15, 2013.
