The Kidd here...

You may know him as Mr. Eko from LOST or Heavy Duty from G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA, but soon enough you'll be calling him Algrim the Strong in THOR: THE DARK WORLD.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has joined the cast of THOR, reports The Hollywood Reporter, as the most powerful of the Dark Elves, who is coerced into fighting the God of Thunder by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston).

As the comics go, Algrim is betrayed by Malekith when fighting Thor, and manages to survive a fall into lava due to his enchanted armor. He is affected by amnesia, but can at least remember his desire to gain revenge on Thor for the events that transpired.

Hmmm... sounds like how a sequel could play out for Alan Taylor with the characters involved...
