Where yesterday confirmed news that 'Game of Thrones' fans would visit the past via flashback in season 5, the HBO drama continues to look to the future as well. 'LOST' and 'Thor: The Dark World' star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has been added to the fifth season cast in a mysterious new role, but will readers of George R.R. Martin's books recognize the name?

After starring in the last 'Silent Hill' movie, Kit Harington continues his quest to extend beyond his "Jon Snow" character on 'Game of Thrones' with 'Pompeii,' a romance-action-'Gladiator' mashup directed by 'Resident Evil' helmer Paul W.S. Anderson. While the film probably isn't on the top of most moviegoers' lists of the most anticipated of 2014, the newly released photo gallery from Sony Pictures shows it'll have at least a few thrills for audiences ... and one menacing Kiefer Sutherland.

'Thor 2' will take movie goers into the depths of 'The Dark World' and introduce us to a few not-so-famous comic book villains from the Marvel universe -- the Dark Elves, led by Malekith the Accursed and his right-hand man and lieutenant Algrim/Kurse. Before you see the Asgardian Avenger's next solo adventure, we spoke with Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays the latter character(s), to offer a primer to this new race of villains and his experience with tackling two roles at once.

Aside from what we've seen from Chris Hemsworth's return as the Avenger from Asgard, one of the most anticipated aspects of 'Thor: The Dark World' is seeing the dueled comic book villain Algrim/Kurse brought to life on the big screen by 'LOST' and 'G.I. Joe' star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Although the actor has expressed interest in playing the Black Panther in a future Marvel movie, which the studio confirmed is in active development, he tells ScreenCrush he's just honored to be involved in this cinematic universe in any respect.
Still, with more high-profile roles coming up, including 'Resident Evil' helmer Paul W.S. Anderson's 'Pompeii,' is there a chance he could still tackle his favorite childhood superhero? Or be featured in more Marvel movies, for that matter?

Most of what we've seen from 'Thor 2' centers around the returning Avenger (Chris Hemsworth) and his new nemesis, Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston), but what about this Dark Elf's right-hand man (or should we say, men?) we've been hearing about?
Got 15 minutes? Great, because we have that amount of b-roll footage from the 'Thor 2' set and a butt load of movie stills, including our first up-close look at Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje in the dueled role of Algrim and Kurse.

There are a lot of really cool actors and actresses joining the Marvel movie universe in 'Thor: The Dark World,' but of all of them, we're most excited to see Adewake Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

'Thor 2,' dubbed 'The Dark World,' is by far one of the most anticipated movies of the coming year, and will star Chris Hemsworth returning as the hammer-wielding God of Thunder as he battles the dark elves. But while a trailer hasn't even hit yet, one of the film's stars is already looking ahead to what future Marvel movies have in store -- specifically for him.
