[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5137:]]Recently a batch of Thor 2, "The Dark World," spoilers were let loose by Akinnuoye-Agbaje in regards to the character of Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston.

Hiddleston's character has been much of an enigma in the movie as we haven't seen any set pics of the diabolical brother of Thor, just tidbits of information about battles.

Now we learn a big spoiler for the movie in regards to Loki and Christopher Eccleston's character, who plays the villain, Malekith, leader of the Dark Elves.

A user on Imjur posted a scan from the upcoming issue of Total Film Magazine where it's stated that Loki is responsible for egging on Malekith's plans to conquer the universe.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5138:]]Note: This could easily be an error on the part of Total Film, as it's not Eccleston stating it (much the same as with the Guardians of the Galaxy animated movie error from another magazine).

"[Malekith]...reportedly described by Eccleston as 'a bad guy with no redeeming features,' he'll be causing the god of Thunder no end of trouble as he plans to take over the universe -- egged on by Tom Hiddleston's mischievous Loki."

Again, we don't know if Eccleston filled Total Film in on that tidbit, but if true, it could suggest that Loki is responsible for opening Pandora's box (so to speak) as well as the previous rumors suggesting that Loki may aid in closing it.

Thor 2: The Dark World hammers into theaters November 8th, 2013 directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin,  Idris Elba as Heimidall, Zachary Levi as Fandral and Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed, Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Kurse.
