Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Joins Thor 2

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Joins Thor 2

Talk about a two-for-one offer: Team Marvel, which is still in the midst of making Thor sequel The Dark World, has snagged former Lost man Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje to play not one but – count ‘em – two roles in the movie.

The actor, who has also appeared in the likes of G.I. Joe, Faster, The Thing and Unstoppable, is on board to initially play Algrim the Strong, the toughest of the Dark Elves ruled by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) who fight Thor and his family.

But when Malekith betrays him, Algrim is injured in battle, only to be healed and turned into Kurse, a being who is described as twice as strong as Asdgard’s finest. How much of the comic lore surrounding him will translate to the screen has yet to be seen, but from the sounds of his dual role, they may be staying true to his tale.

Alan Taylor is calling the shots even now in London, with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Jamie Alexander, Stellan Skarsgard, Rene Russo, Tom Hiddleston and, as reported yesterday, Kat Dennings all reprising their roles.

Akinnuoye-Agbaje will next shop up in The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete alongside Anthony Mackie and Bullet To The Head, which stars Sylvester Stallone and put out a trailer not so long ago…
