Thor 2's Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Wants The Black Panther Movie

Body

5056 We just heard from Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays the dual characters Elgrim The Strong and Kurse, in Thor 2, "The Dark World," letting loose a lot of details as well as perhaps some spoilers about his character and others in the movie.

And as we previously heard, he might be in talks to be featured in another Marvel Studios movie, with the Guardians of the Galaxy previously mentioned (most likely Drax).

Now, MTV News caught up with the actor and asked him about just that, having a featured role in another movie, with this time, the Black Panther movie being brought up.

"Who do I want to play him? Myself, let’s be real. I would hope that playing Kurse would ingratiate me to becoming the Panther. You get in and have success in one, and you go and do the next one. [My campaign] is definitely not dropped," he told MTV.

"He’s one of my faves. I would love to play him. You have to keep at it, you have to keep your card in the hat and see what comes out but I have to say I’m thrilled, I’ve been able to play two characters in one movie and if [Marvel] likes this and it this does well, it just gives you a better chance," he said.

Thor 2: The Dark World hammers into theaters November 8th, 2013.
