Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje (Lost / Oz) is the latest actor to sign on as a villain for Thor: The Dark World. He is set to play Algrim the Strong, the most powerful Dark Elf. Christopher Eccelston (Dr Who / GI Joe) recently signed on to play the main villain Malekoth the Accursed, the ruler of the Dark Elves. According to Variety Agbaje will be doing double duty.

Per Variety, Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be pulling double duty in Thor 2 as he’ll be playing two versions of the same character. In the comics, Malekith coerces Algrim into battling Thor, only to be betrayed and injured by Malekith. Algrim then heals and is transformed into an even more powerful being called Kurse, who is said to be twice as strong as Thor.

Add into this mix of baddies Tom Hiddleston who returns as Thor’s betraying “brother”, and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is going to have his hands full. Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard, Kat Denninh, and Rene Russo are also returning. Thor: The Dark World opens on November 8th, 2013.
