Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje on Thor: The Dark World
The man who will be playing Kurse and Algrim in the Thor sequel has been chatting about his role in the film...
With 2013 looking set to deliver so many potentially great films by the end of the summer, it's easy to forget that we've got Thor: The Dark World to look forward to in November. It seems a smart move to push it out of a busy blockbuster season and allow it to take a greater share of cinema audiences in the run up to the holiday season.
One of the additions to the cast is Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who will be playing both Algrim and Kurse. He's been chatting about the roles in a recent interview, saying that “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 different style from Chris. It was a great ride.”
As Kurse he will be sharing antagonist duties with Malekith and Loki, here's what he had to say about Loki's role in the film: “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 are some great surprises.”
He also was drawn on whether he would appear in future movies but outside of saying what a great time he's having working with Marvel and we'll see, he didn't add a great deal. Which is understandable as actors are rarely the ones to break the news of additional roles they may or may not be involved with within the Marvel universe.
