Me too. He didn't mention him so far, but, considering Malekith will appear in the following story arc, the same might happen to Kurse.

But back to Mangog, I'd like to see him on film but I think he'd be too similar to Kurse in terms of being monstrous and crazy strong.
I think the most recent Mangog, the one from Jurgan's run, would be a peer of Kurse. As for Thanos, I would think Kurse has him beat in strength. However, the thing with that, Thanos is, as I see it, decently stronger than Thor, since he was casually able to hang was an "out for blood" thor, who weld the Power Gem.

Oh you are implying that Thanos doesn't toss thor around as much as Kurse? Think of it thoough, how often do we see Thanos engage in handto hand combat? Without energy amped punches, he went toe to toe with Thor, who was out for blood, and had the power gem. That Thor was pretty damn close to Kurse. And don't forget, he did KILL the silver Surfer in like 8 punches, granted, it was punches amped with cosmic energy, yeah. h2h, I think Kurse and Thanos can go either way, but everythinh into consideration, Thanos' other powers, and intellect, he'd beat Kurse.

The most recent mangog is on par with Kurse, in my opinion. But Mangog back in the 60s? Didn't he break Thor's arm by one shotting him with his tail? Mangog was a threat to Odin.

I agree Thanos would overcome Kurse due to his intellect and energy powers, I was just saying Kurse is a bit stronger. I wasn't implying that I think Kurse would win, because we all know Thanos would be the victor.

As for Mangog, you're right in the 60's he was a threat to Odin and Kurse was never able to one shot Kurse. So yeah now that you put it that way I'm sure Mangog would win, it'd still be a hell of a scuffle.

Yea, haha, I noticed that. I feel like a bit of an idiot. But I've been off the Hype since Comicon so I guess I kinda deserve it a bit? lol. But hey, we finally got a look right?

Remember this?

Akinnuoye-Agbaje described Kurse as "an amalgamation of a bull and a lava-like creature".

If that is true, then the big guy from the trailer probably isn't Kurse, but Algrim before he becomes Kurse.

It could be the lava aspects only come out when he's actively fighting.

Why would Agrim look like a monster? At the beginning, he is just a very powerful dark elf warrior not a fearsome monster.

Well SOMETHING does happen at some point to the Dark Elves because we DO see Malekith unscarred in the beginning

Right. But I wasn't able to tell if we really see a fearsome monster in the trailer at 1.46 or just a big dark elf in an archaic armour.

BTW, it is a good question where Kurse's armour comes from.

Kurse will, of course, have a different origin than in the comics (no Beyonder).

So, when Algrim is magically turned into Kurse, the armour could come magically out of nowhere.

But it is also possible that the transformation just merges Algrim with the armour he already wears.

In that case, pre-transformation Algrim in his armour would look at least somewhat similar to Kurse - the latter would be bigger and more "twisted" (and with lava effects), but you would still be able to recognise that it is Algrim's old armour..

ALGRIM/KURSE (ADEWALE AKINNUOYE-AGBAJE)

Algrim/Kurse is Malekith’s trusted and loyal lieutenant. He fought at Malekith’s side during the initial war with Asgard thousands of years ago, but now their time is running out. Algrim is called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice and is transformed into the monstrous Kurse. With a new and terrifying power, Kurse seeks to destroy Thor and Asgard in preparation for Malekith’s arrival.

So, when we get to the "present day", will he already be kurse?

Wonder what this sacrifice will be?

Hey. If Hela is in the movie (since we speculated that Krige was her), maybe this "ultimate sacrifice" is Death?

I would think that being morphed into the creature that he becomes is a sacrifice.
