Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje joins the cast of Thor: Dark World, playing the dual roles of Algrim the Strong and Kurse.
In the comicbooks, Algrim the Strong was the most powerful of a race of Dark Elves, who is coerced by Malekith to fight Thor. After he’s betrayed by Malekith and injured during a battle, Algrim is healed and transformed into a much more powerful being called Kurse, who is twice as a strong as Thor. Shooting on the sequel is taking place in London.
Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s credits include “G.I. Joe,” “The Bourne Identity” and small-screen roles on “Lost” and “Oz.” He will be seen next in “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete” and “Bullet to the Head.” Source: Variety
You will recall Idris Elba ticked some off because he played a Norse diety, Heimdall, and some fans felt he shouldn’t have played that role because he is black. Well, they will be ticked off again because he will be appearing in the sequel as Heimdall.
