Sorry we’re very late on this one. Lost and Oz actor, Adewale “copy and paste” Akinnuoye-Agbaje, will be playing the villainous role of Kurse…as well as the Elf Algrim The Strong. The character explanation, courtesy of The Playlist, might be considered spoiler territory for some. Tread lightly.
One of the most powerful of the Dark Elves, in the comics, Algrim is tricked by Malekith into fighting Thor, but surives an attempt by the villain to kill them both. Malekith then decides to take advantage of Algrim’s amnesia and refashions him into Kurse, a being who is two times as strong as Thor. Adding to his skills are his various supernatural powers thanks to being an elf, as well as having a sentient suit of armor that is practically a being unto itself.
Thor 2 will start lensing any day now, and Comicbookmovie has new photos of the set building and confirmation that production will start near Stonehenge.
