The mighty Thor may not have a rogues gallery as impressive as Superman or Spider-Man, but one thing he does have is a rather varied assortment of enemies who have tasted his uru metal. I’m talking about his hammer, you dirty-minded people.
The upcoming sequel will have the Thunder God facing some elvish action, in the form of Christopher “Destro” Eccleston, who’ll be insisting that many realms have a north, as Malekith. But he’s not going to be the only adversary that the Odinson shall face, as a certain GI Joe will be making his presence felt.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has been cast as Algrim, a role that the actor from Lost and Oz will expand upon, with this little spoiler for those comic book fans out there. Consider yourselves warned:
HEIMDALL, OPEN THE SPOILERS!
IT IS SAID THAT YOU CAN SEE ALL THE SPOILERS FROM YOUR ODIN-SLEEP
WHERE DID YOU RECEIVE YOUR SPOILER OF FORTUNE TRAINING? SOUTH AFRICA?
I WILL NOT SPOILER YOU BROTHER!
According to Variety, Algrim will be defeated by Thor in the film (duh), get brain-hammered so hard that he’ll develop amnesia, and resurface as Kurse, a far more powerful being that will give Thor a run for his money, resulting in a major arc developing in the film.
It’ll be interesting to see how Akinnuoye-Agbaje handles the role, and I’m just praying that he asks Malekith what his elf eyes see, before he gets hammered in the face.
