In an interview with MTV, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has praised working with Marvel Studios, as well as providing a very detailed description of his Dark Elf Algrim And Kurse characters. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje called Thor 2 “a great, great, great movie” and said it was a great opportunity for him.
In describing his two characters, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje said, “I had blonde hair, blue eyes, pointed ears, and fangs, horns, everything you could want as a boy in an action hero movie.” Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje revealed, “Kurse is the one where I do all the fighting, and it’s what, forty pounds extra weight.” Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje added, “Kurse is very kind of like animalistic. He’s got these horns, and so what I did is I tried to go with that flow. So my movements were very much like an animal.”
In perhaps the biggest spoiler, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje revealed that Loki will play a fairly sizable role in the film. Since Tom Hiddelson has played the central villain in two Marvel Studios films already, many fans had been wondering if Loki might be regulated to a minor role in Thor 2. However, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje said, “There’s fights going on. He gets his fair [share]. Me and him as well. The great thing about Kurse he’s having it with everybody.” Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje added, “Loki, he’s got some amazing fights in there. They’re really going to be happy with this. Everybody gets their little shine. I want tell you what really happens, but there’s some great surprises.”
In regards to if fans would ever get to see him in another Marvel movie, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje said, “Well, it’s funny that you should say that, as we speak, we’re talking about that.” When asked specifically if he was talking about Guardians of the Galaxy, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje replied, “I’m not talking about anything yet. I’m just talking about having a really good relationship with Marvel.”
