The Avengers Movie Wiki


Malekith the Accursed is the king of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim and an enemy of Thor.


Malekith is the cruel leader of the Dark Elves, a race of beings said to be older than the universe itself. Born into darkness, Malekith led his people in a war against the Asgardians, but they were thought to have been destroyed thousands of years ago. Malekith survived, however, and now seeks to transform our universe, plunging it back into eternal darkness.


Malekith appears in Thor: The Dark World (movie) and is portrayed by Christopher Eccleston.
