We know many people – yes, including us – have issues with Lost, but when it was good, it was fantastic. And now one of our favourote characters from it, Mr Eko, is set for Thors 2… well, the actor is.
Variety are reporting that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has signed on to the sequel as one of the villains alongside Christopher Eccleton as Malekith the Accursed and, if the rumour is true, he will play the roles of Algrim the Strong and Kurse, wait, what?
Variety eplains: In the comicbooks, Algrim the Strong was the most powerful of a race of Dark Elves, who is coerced by Malekith to fight Thor. After he’s betrayed by Malekith and injured during a battle, Algrim is healed and transformed into a much more powerful being called Kurse, who is twice as a strong as Thor.
Frankly, the idea of these two together alongside Tom Hiddleston as Loki versus Thor has us feeling a little giddy. We aren’t sure if we’re lucky comic fans or lucky movie fans. Wait, can we be both?
