Known to “LOST” fans as Mr. Eko, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has made his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will make his debut in Thor: The Dark World as both Algrim and Kurse. He spoke with MTV about his character, his fights, and his potential return for more movies.
“Kurse is very animalistic. He’s got these horns, so what I did was try to go with that flow so my movements were very much like an animal. You had to contort your body and your head cause I’ve got these big horns on my head. Very, very differeny style from Chris’. It was a great ride.”
With both Kurse and Malekith in the antagonist roles for the film, where does that leave fan favorite Loki? Well, he’s not sitting this one out.
“He gets his fair share, me and him as well. The great thing about Kurse, he’s having it with everybody. Loki has some amazing fights in this, everybody gets their shine. I won’t tell you what really happens, but there’s some great surprises.”
Even though we won’t see him in a Marvel film until later this year, it seems like his tenure with Marvel Studios will continue with appearances in more movies.
“We’re talking about that. Obviously Marvel is a great family that I’m happy to be working with. We had a great time on, so I’d love to continue that relationship.”
When asked if his return might be for a part in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy he laughed and said, “I’m not talking about anything yet. I’m just talking about having a really good relationship with Marvel.”
The sequel takes place in the aftermath of Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, following Thor as he fights to restore order across the cosmos when an ancient race, led by the vengeful Malekith, returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Thor: The Dark World hits theaters on November 8, 2013.
