Mr. Eko Talks About His Villain in THOR: THE DARK WORLD and a New Production Still From the Set


The God of Thunder is back for more universal smackdown in Marvel‘s Thor: The Darkworld. Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston will all be back reprising their roles while a couple of new villains have been added to the mix with the exceptional talents of Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje whom you might remember as Mr. Eko from a little television show called Lost.


Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje took some time to talk a little bit to The L.A. Times about his character Algrim and his 40 pound costume.

“It’s an amalgamation of a bull and a lava-like creature,” he said. “He has very animalistic tendencies but with this insatiable and unstoppable power. As an actor, that’s one of the hardest things to embody. You have to realize you are probably the most powerful thing you could imagine. And you have to be that. You can’t pretend, so that when you face Thor, it’s real.”

But that’s not all! We also have a new production still from the set featuring Chris Hemsworth and director Alan Taylor.

Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness.

Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Thor: The Dark World, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Idris Elba, is slated to hit theaters on November 8, 2013
