Ever since Marvel confirmed that a sequel was planned for the God of Thunder, comic fans have been itching to find out just who the Thor 2 villains will be. Now, it appears that recent leaks have been sprawling across the internet about the Thor II movie.

Marvel Studios President of Production, Kevin Feige, has announced recently that the Thor sequel will indeed feature an exciting new villain. However, he did not hint at who this villain will be.

However, within the past few days, It's been reported that Mads Mikkelsen has been added to the Thor sequel cast. Mads who?

Mads Mikkelsen is the new Hannibal Lector in the upcoming Hannibal T.V. series. The actor has also played an antagonist in the movie Casino Royale as well. So he's no stranger to playing bad guys.

Although a tight lid has been kept on the Danish actor's role in Thor II, a few other leaks has had comic fans piecing things together. Let's see what's been going around the mill about the Thor II movie.

It's well known that Tom Hiddleston will have a prominent role as Loki in the Thor sequel, but Bleeding Cool has confidently reported that the Enchantress will be a part of the second Thor installment. The Enchantress, eh?

For those who are not familiar with this character and her role in Marvel Comics, the Enchantress was banished to Earth by Odin after helping Loki try to get Thor to relinquish his hammer. How did the cunning Loki try to do this?

Well, the God of Mischief, trapped Jane Foster to another dimension. The only way to get her back was for the God of Thunder to give Loki his prized Mjollnir.

It also well-known that the powerful Asgardian sorceress, Amora, who goes by the name Enchantress, is one of Thor's most notable antagonists and often aids Loki in the Marvel Comics. This amazingly sexy sorceress is a perfect addition to the Thor movie storyline.

The character first appeared in Journey Into Mystery #103 for all those comic investing fans out there. If The Enchantress is indeed in Thor 2, guess what comic collectors and investors will be scrambling to get? That's right, this sexy vixen's first appearance!

No, they probably won't use the exact storyline in the comics for Thor 2. I'm sure they'll make it believable or realistic in some sense. God, will Sif and the Warriors Three be in the sequel? I sure hope so.

Well, comic fans are now speculating that if the Enchantress is indeed in the new Thor movie, Mikkelsen must be playing The Executioner. After all, in the comics, The Executioner did follow The Enchantress on her quest to aid Loki in his diabolical plan.

The Executioner, also known as Skurge, is a warrior who gained his name after fighting in a war against the Storm Giants. His character has always had the hots for Amora The Enchantress also. Can you blame him?

However, Mads Mikkelsen as The Executioner? He doesn't really look like the brute. I think Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a The Rock, would be an amazing Skurge The Executioner! That's if the Executioner will be added as one of the Thor 2 villains.

Skurge The Executioner also first appeared in Marvel Comics, Journey Into Mystery #103! This all kind of makes sense, doesn't it?

The Thor II movie starts filming this summer, and I'm definitely sure we'll start seeing some leaked photos pretty soon.

Well, if Mads is to be the Executioner, it wouldn't the be first time the Thor franchise or Marvel Studios miscast a character. Oh, well! I'm more concerned about who is going to play the lovely Enchantress.

So what do you think? Which actress do you think should play the ultra sexy Enchantress?

WHO SHOULD PLAY THIS ASGARDIAN BOMBSHELL?

The Enchantress Marvel Comics. Who should play Amora?

      For some reason I was under the imspresion that there would be more lead in to the Avenger Initiative . More movies covering the characters. Although, I guess covering Hulk, Iron Man, Cap, and Thor does sort of cover the main 4.I don't know what they're thinking either Dennis. I don't know that it could be a good move.

      @thefilmguy24, I agree with ya on the concern about phase 3 of Marvel movie, but it's unclear whether Thanos will have a big role in Guardians. It could be another bit part like in Avengers.

      Kevin Feige will announce the Marvel's mystery movie that will follow Captain America 2 at San Diego Con this week. It's already leaked that it will be Guardians, and this makes sense. In the comics, Thanos is mostly linked to Thor and Adam Warlock, so I think the Guardians movie will be based on the modern version of the team...Adam Warlock, Drax the Destroyer.

      They could be setting up Thanos as the main villain for Avengers 3 for all we know right now. If that's the case then who will be the big baddie in Avengers 2.

      Ultron would be pretty cool, and you're right...for the cosmos part of the Marvel Universe, nobody is really bigger or badder than Thanos. I'm predicting that Loki will actually steal the Infinity Gauntlet from Odin's vault for Thanos in Thor II, though I hope he doesn't. I'd much rather see Thanos stomp in there and do it himself...makes for a better action sequence.

      @rabbit75...that's some pretty cool news that Thanos will be involved with "The Guardians of The Galaxy" movie. I'm looking forward into it. My only concern is that if Phase 2 is focusing on the Cosmos and Thanos, then how would Marvel/Disney/Paramount top themselves when and if Phase 3 comes along? Who is bigger and badder than Thanos himself? I've heard rumors that maybe Phase 3, which I know is way, way down the line, is that Ultron may make an appearance. That may be the route that they might go for. But as we all know, everything is just speculation and rumors at the time being.

      I was thinking the same thing about the Infinity Gauntlet in Odin's vault in the first Thor movie, which directly ties Thanos to the Asgardian world. After all, Thanos would need to recover that item.

      Perhaps, they are thinking of Thor III of when that happens because it was just announced that Thanos will be the villain of Gaurdians of the Galaxy!

      You did bring up a good point...Thanos would be an awesome addition to the Thor villains. I think that he may play him since there is no confirmation of an actress to play the Enchantress since she is a two for one deal if Mikklensen is The Executioner. But we may never know. My hope is that he is playing Thanos since he sort of looks like him and that Thanos needs to obtain the Infinity Gauntlet and where is that exactly? Odins vault. We may just have to sit back a little bit before more info comes in, but those two villains are the best choices for Mikklensen. The only thing is though, if Marvel does a Phase 3, then how would they top Thanos as the main baddie for The Avengers to fight? Just a thought.

      Heya Thefilmguy24, thanks and thank you for stoppin by on the conversation. The real question is which villain he will play?

      In an interview, Chris Hemsworth said it wasn't Thanos, because the "movie needed a bigger fish to fry!"

      A bigger fish to fry than Thanos? I'm not completely buying that Thor 2 won't have Thanos as the villain. After all, Marvel and Shane Black continually said that the Mandarin wont be in Iron Man 3, and now it's confirmed that he will be.

      I'm predicting Thanos!

      Good hub. Very interesting. I've wrote something similar about Marvel's Phase 2 and commented on Thor 2. I think that Mads Mikklensen is a good choice to play a villain since he has played them in his last few films. I'm really not familiar with Thor's Rouge Gallery but I do like the story in the comic from what I researched since it is official that Natalie Portman is returning as Jane Foster. As for the casting of The Enchantress if she is in it, I would like to see Charlize Theron as maybe a casting choice.

      Heya Steve, I too liked the first Thor movie. I thought it was a lot better than what I originally thought when I heard the news Marvel was planning on doing it.

      Great choice in Bond girl Olga Kurylenko. I think she's a great choice to play the Enchantress. Well, she'd look great for any female superhero character in a movie. lol.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Good to hear from you as always, and keep up the great work on your hubs.

      Thanks tommysparta...I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to the Thor sequel. I'm really interested in what next adventure they have for the God of Thunder, and hope it's in the realm of Asgard more.

      We got to see a bit of Asgard in the first film but not really much. I think that mythological realm is well worth exploring.

      thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      Thor II is also a movie I'm highly anticipating Rahul. I'm excited to see what direction they take the Thunder God in. Marvel's phase two is definitely going to be interesting to see. Thanks for stopping by and commenting bro!

      Bond girl Olga Kurylenko might make a sexy Enchantress.
