Personally, I hope I am wrong and that they can stick to the origin and that it is done well, works with the movie and that it doesn't feel forced, but I just don't see it happening.

I know. But the fact that the transformation is there, I mean. That's there, it seems pointless to leave his character arc out. What's the point of him just being a brute. Especially if he indeed does get betrayed by Malekith. he needs to atleast defeat him.

The only looming question is, of course, who (if anybody) will assume Beyonder's role in transforming Algrim and manipulating him into blaming Thor for his problems.
which is why I think Kurse will come full circlre and kill malekith

As for Loki manipulating Kurse, once again I can see Loki as feeling he is justified in his actions against his brother if Thor left Asgard during it's hour of need and perhaps in his own twisted mind he feels he is redeeming himself by trying to kill Thor who he can percieve as a traitor to the realm of Asgard.

I can see it. Maybe he uses the cube? I personally think Surtur is the one to change him

Yeah. Too early.

I had this debate before. Oh my god you took the words right out of my mouth. They seem to miss the true point of Loki's character. MCU or not, Loki is Loki, and he is not a misunderstood wooby who can be redeemed by love. He's cold, and has gone too far deep. And you fist pump at every time justice gets served to him. Which is what makes him such an awesome villain.
