Yeah, in light of that, they probably will have the Algrim/Thor fight, the transformation, and the Thor/Kurse fight, without Kurse running around doing the other things he does in the book. That slims it down but keeps essential parts. I suppose he still needs to first think it's Thor's fault and then realize it was Malekith, as one of the "essential parts".
Whether there is a break between the transformation and the Thor/Kurse fight is hard for me to guess at the moment.
