Thor 2: The Dark World may not be coming soon to a theater near you, but people are still just as excited as if they only had a few more weeks to wait. The studio is finishing up casting of the film and fans eagerly await each bit of news regarding who will be in it, what roles they might be playing and what that means to the overall story of the sequel. The latest additions to the cast? Kat Dennings and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Kat Dennings will be continuing her role as Darcy Lewis, despite other obligations with her popular TV show 2 Broke Girls. Her return was questionable for a while, but it looks like she decided to go ahead and jump on board. In the first film she was a somewhat forgettable sidekick to Natalie Portman, but it looks like this time around she will be getting a little more screen time.
The other addition, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (try saying that five times fast) is probably most famous for his role in the frightfully confusing television show Lost. In Thor 2 he will be taking on the part of a Dark Elf by the name of Algrim. According the rumor mill, he’ll get to take a shot or two at beating up Thor.
In case you’ve been living in a closet with no Internet, the rest of the (important) cast so far are as follows: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Stellan Skarsgard, Rene Russo and Christopher Eccleston.
Thor 2: The Dark World is set for release on November 8th, 2013 and will be the second installment of the “Phase 2” Marvel super hero movie bombardment.
Thanks to slashfilm for the heads-up on this one.
