While it's not footage from the movie, we get a good look at what the character of Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will look like in the movie with the Kurse action figure.

Hasbro revealed their Thor 2 action figure line and among them is a first look at Kurse.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje transforms from Elgrim The Strong to Kurse in the movie and previously said he really mixes it up with Thor.

"It’s an amalgamation of a bull and a lava-like creature," Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje said back in February. "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."

Here are the Thor 2 Kurse action figure images (via ToyArk):
