Another British actor has joined the cast of Thor: The Dark World, as Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has signed on to play the villain Algrim the Strong and Kurse, according to Variety.
Algrim the Strong was the most powerful of the Dark Elves who is convinced by his leader, Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston), to battle the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth). After being defeated by Thor and betrayed by Malekith, he is transformed into a much more powerful entity dubbed Kurse. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is best known for playing Mr. Eko on Lost, and has also appeared in Killer Elite, The Thing, and Faster, and will be seen early next year in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor is taking the helm on this superhero sequel, working from a screenplay by Don Payne (Thor). The film will shot in the UK later this year.
