He may be notoriously reluctant to return to DOCTOR WHO, but Christopher Eccleston’s soon to make his debut in another much-loved genre franchise – the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Also starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, and Anthony Hopkins, THOR: THE DARK WORLD will be released on 30th October.
