Borg Queen cast in Thor 2

Thor Casting Rumors

Alice Krige, the actress best known for playing the cybernetic monarch the Borg Queen in First Contact, has signed on for Alan Taylor’s Asgardian sequel Thor: The Dark World.
 
While she’s given no specifics about her role, the South African thespian hinted that she may be unrecognizable in the film. If her character requires a great deal of CGI or prosthetics, then she’ll probably be one of Marvel’s more fantastical beings.

Given her penchant for regal roles, I think we can safely bet she’ll play Alflyse, Queen of the Dark Elves. Although, given the age gap between the actress and Christopher Eccleston, who’ll portray Malekith the commander of the evil beasties, I think Krige will be a more subtle character.
 
The other possibility is that she could play Death. Krige has a history of playing great female villains and this is one role that would suit he perfectly. However,  a role as prominent as that would probably go to a more high profile (and younger) actress. 
 
Well Maniacs, who do you think Krige will play?

Death would be interesting and keep the link to Thanos

She could be Hela.  It is called The Dark World, and Niffleheim could likely come to play.

That is so true. Good point.

Hela yeah!

She should just reprise her role as the Borg Queen and have Thor Cross over into the Star Trek world.

Resistance is futile !!!

I think I'm leaning towards Bob's suggestion of Alflyse. But Thor's universe is rich with characters I won't even take a guess. But this film sounds better all the time with the casting additions and with Taylor's work on GOT and I'm really excited for this sequel.

@Wiseguy

Yeah, that's more than likely who she's playing, but I'd put Hela above Death as a possibility, as seems a little too out there for the movieverse.  I could be wrong, with Thanos and all, but it does jack up the weirder elements of the MU a little high.

I'd seriously be scared to sleep with this lady. Her and Glenn Close give me the creeps!! For a Thor villain, that's a good thing tho. =)

 who knows?, though whatever role she might play she will do good. she is an amazing actor....

DarthBob 8/14/2012 8:56:09 AM

I'm guessing she's playing Death and we'll see more of her in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers 2.  This sure is the golden age of Marvel CBMs!
