Just read this regarding the Thor sequel:

This is fantastic news, loved the first Thor movie, will Sir Ken be directing again? because he nailed it last time, and I'm with Cruel Angel bring on a CE Hot toys figure, just in case we need it for a custom 9th Doctor. Very Happy

Unfortunately, he isn't directing the sequel. Can't remember who is. Their initial choice left, and someone who had a good rep because Natalie was hyped up about it... now they have someone else.

Finally saw Thor a couple weeks ago and I'd watch a sequel.

But I thought Eccleston didn't like being typecast as the villian in American TV/films?

I was already looking forward to this (no surprise there, I'm sure! XD) but I have to say that casting Eccleston is genius! I've really enjoyed Malekith in the comics and I think he'll be a mighty interesting character in the movies now.

Oh and I believe the director's name is Alan Taylor, who's directed some episodes of Game of Thrones, apparently.
