[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5022:]]We recently found out that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be playing both Elgrim the Strong and Kurse in Thor 2, “The Dark World,” which could suggest a whole host of possibilities.
Now we hear that those might not be his only roles in the Marvel Studios universe, as he talks with MTV and confirms the two characters again, but this time also mentions that he is in talks to play another Marvel Studios character.
But before we get to that, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje lets loose a bunch of in-depth details on Kurse as well as – possibly – spoiling Loki’s role in the movie.
“Kurse is the one where I do all the fighting. It’s 40lbs of extra weight, and the good thing about it, is it’s very flexible and elastic,” he tells MTV about the prosthetics. “Me and Chris [Hemsworth], we would go toe-to-toe. It was hard core.”
[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5023:]]“Chris is with his hammer; Kurse is like very animalistic,” he continued. “He’s got these horns, so what I did is, I tried to go with that flow, so my movements were very much like an animal. You had to contort your body, because I got these big horns on my head, a lot of twisting, very very different style than Chris’, and he [Kurse] is meant to be extremely powerful so nothing could stop him. It was a great ride. How cool is that.”
Next we hear about a major possible spoiler about Loki’s character, in that this time around he could be a good guy as Loki is set to battle Kurse as well, which could mean Loki and his brother Thor teaming up against Malekith the Accursed.
“There’s fights going [on]. He [Loki] gets his fair [share], and me and him as well,” the actor tell MTV’s in response to a question about Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in battle. “The great thing about Kurse is, he is having it with everybody. But no, Loki has some amazing fights in there. They are really going to be happy with this. Everybody gets their little shine and I won’t really tell you what happens, but there are some great surprises.”
Regarding the other character he might be playing, MTV brings up Drax from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, with Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje playing coy.
“Funny you say that, as we speak, we’re talking about that,” he said.
When asked specifically about the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Akinnuoye-Agbaje responded back, “I’m not talking about anything yet. I’m just talking about having a really good relationship with Marvel.”
Here’s the video:
