‘Thor 2′ Star Teases Another Marvel Movie: ‘Black Panther’ or ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ Perhaps?
‘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.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, known for his previous roles in ’G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’ and ABC’s ‘LOST,’ is set to portray two characters in ‘Thor: The Dark World’ — a henchman of the dark elf Malekith (Christopher Eccleston), Algrim, who is slain in battle and reborn as the even more powerful being Kurse. Though this dual role required a great deal of physical prowess, it did not shy the actor away from the role. In fact, he’s actually looking to continue his relationship with Marvel as he revealed he’s in talks for another superhero movie.
Speaking with MTV News, Akinnuoye-Agbaje said, “As we speak, we’re talking about [future Marvel movies]. Obviously Marvel is a great family that I’m happy to be working with. We had a great time on ['Thor'], so I’d love to continue that relationship.” But when pressed about if ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ was on the docket, he responded, “I’m not talking about anything yet. I’m just talking about having a really good relationship with Marvel.”
So, which movie could he be eyeing? It’s been known for a while that Akinnuoye-Agbaje has expressed interest in starring in a ‘Black Panther‘ movie, which has been previously rumored to be one of the next few Marvel films. In terms of ‘Guardians,’ however, the role of Drax the Destroyer is up for grabs and has been auditioning a number of actors with the same build, not to mention that another ‘Thor 2′ star (Zachary Levi) is reportedly up for the lead role of Star-Lord/Peter Quill. Plus, if we’re speculating wildly here, there’s still Thanos in ‘The Avengers 2‘ to consider.
