Mr. Eko is back! And this time he’s going to play a villain! No matter what side he’s on, actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is a resident bad-ass.
He’s joining the Marvel family in Thor: The Dark World, playing the dual roles of Algrim the Strong and Kurse.
Here’s what he looks like fighting Thor in the comics:
Variety describes the baddie as such:
“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.”
Agbaje displayed his intimidating mug in G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, The Bourne Identity, and HBO’s Oz. But his most notable role was on ABC’s Lost as the enigmatic and far-too-short-lived Mr. Eko.
