Double dip day over at the Marvel casting offices continues with word that Thor 2 is in the process of recruiting a new villain. Not content with taking on James Bond in Casino Royale, Mads Mikkelsen is in talks to tangle with Asgard’s favourite son in the superhero sequel.

According to Variety, everyone’s favourite god of mischief will still be causing problems for everyone, but if Mikkelsen locks in a deal, Loki’ll have some help.Exactly which villain Mikkelsen is up for has yet to be revealed. Thor has an extensive rogues gallery, so he could be anything – Executioner, Mangog, Mephisto… Give us your best guess in the comments below or in the Twitsphere.Most of the »
