Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Teases on Fight in THOR: THE DARK WORLD and Another Possible Role

The Thor sequel, Thor: The Dark World, is sounding so much more epic than the first movie.  I mean, the first movie was nice, but from what’s being shown about this one, it just sounds more…  Thor-ish.  And that’s a good thing.  We still get most of the original cast, but with additional villains, there’s just more to be excited about.  And Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who was most impressive as Mr. Eko in the TV show Lost, will add some of the villainy that Thor will be up against, which is just splendid!

“Thor 2; great movie, great opportunity. I’ve been a fan of the Marvel Comics and I got a massive opportunity to play two characters in the movie: Algrim and Kurse. You go in thinking, ‘Yeah this is great.’ But when you get in there, you’re like whoa; six hours of makeup, prosthetics, all the physical [stuff]. But honestly, I loved it. It’s going to be such an epic. And both of the characters; I have blonde hair, blue eyes, pointed ears, fangs, horns; everything you could want as boy in an action hero movie. It’s amazing. The fighting was really demanding. For instance, Kurse is the one that does all the fighting. It’s forty pounds of extra weight and the good thing about it is that it’s very flexible and elastic. I have a routine before I put it on: I stretch and do all my pilates. You see this big creature doing pilates, it’s great. And then we’d have to go fight. Me and Chris [Hemsworth] go toe-to-toe. It was hardcore.”


Kurse vs. Thor?!  Faaantastic!  Here, he talks more about the fighting:

“[Thor and Kurse] fight differently. Chris has his hammer while Kurse is very animalistic, he’s got horns. So I tried to go with that flow. My movements are [basically] like an animal: twisting my body, turning my head, all kinds of things. Kurse is meant to be extremely powerful, nothing can stop him. It’s a great ride. There’s fights everything in the movie. Loki gets his fair share of fights; [one of which] is between him and I as well. The great thing about Kurse is he is having it with everybody. But yes, Loki has some amazing fights. [Fans] are really gonna be happy with this movie. Everybody gets their little shine. I won’t tell you what really happens, but there’s some great surprises.”

Not only that, but it seems that Mr. Akinnuoye-Agbaje may be taking on another Marvel character in the near future:

“As we speak, [Marvel Studios and I] are talking about [playing in another Marvel movie]. Obviously, Marvel is a great family that I’m happy to be working with. We had a great time on Thor: The Dark World. I loved to continue that relationship.”
