Starring in this weekend's Bullet to the Head, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje spoke today with The LA Times about appearing on the big screen later this year in another comic book-inspired feature, Thor: the Dark World. He'll be playing both Algrim and the character's demonic alter-ego, Kurse, in the November 8 release.

ďItís an amalgamation of a bull and a lava-like creature,Ē the actor told the outlet. ďHe has very animalistic tendencies but with this insatiable and unstoppable power. As an actor, thatís one of the hardest things to embody. You have to realize you are probably the most powerful thing you could imagine. And you have to be that. You canít pretend, so that when you face Thor, itís real.Ē

Algrim first appeared in Thor #347 and was one of the most powerful of the dark elves. He is given the task of killing Thor by Malekith the Accursed (set to be played by Christopher Eccleston). He is betrayed by Malekith who tries to kill Thor by allowing both the god of thunder and Algrim to fall to their deaths. While both survived, Algrim developed amnesia from the event and is transformed into the much more powerful being, Kurse.

Thor: the Dark World reunites Chris Hemsworth's Thor with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Natalie Portman as the love interest, Jane Foster. Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones") is directing.
