Well there's not much to contend with:

Guy in armor
another guy in armor
Red German
Abomination (that was a good one though)

Thanos will compete when we see him. But overall, yes. Thor movies by a WIDE margin.

He said one of the best. And I gotta agree, yeah Spidey, Batman, and potentially Superman have better villains. But Thor is certainly up there.

As for Kurse, I gotta say I'm not all that impressed. I really wish they went with the more armored look that the original Kurse had, just no yellow. The current design? It looks more like the aborted lovechild of a predator and a minotaur.

but how would you do that. A giant thing in armor? As much as I love his comic look, and want that on screen, what we are getting fits in better. Plus there's a tid bit of Kurse in there, I'm cool with it

Yeah comic book Kurse would be a disaster on film, the changes they made fit the big screen more. Also I think this version of Kurse looks even more menacing than his original look, it gives off a certain "blood thirsty" vibe.

My worry was that he was going to just turn into just like..a monster. However, I am glad that he looks like something that is more self aware, and..somewhat civilized.

well not civilized, but not just a growling smashing monster. It looks like something that can still have a mind and personality, which is cool

It certainly looks fearsome, which is what i expect from a character like Kurse.

Now all we need is a sense of Kurse's strength, I hope he's atleast Hulk level but I want him to be even stronger.

The way I imagine he'll tear up though the Asgardian gods, I'm confident he'll be even more impressive than the Hulk.

He better be lol. Hulk's never been able to give Thor a beatdown like Kurse has. In terms of brute strength, he should set the standard for the MCU

Agreed. Kurse should a physical powerhouse and, in terms of brute strength, should be the most powerful character we see until Thanos arrives. I'm just hoping that he doesn't go the way of the Destroyer and get beaten easily by Thor.

I'd almost like to see Hulk get a cameo where Kurse beats him down too

that way we don't get the casual movie fans being all "oh Hulk would totally kick his ass"

Agreed, there is no reason to put other heroes down just to make others look better specifically in a solo film.

Regardless the Hulk fans are going to say he would defeat Kurse..
Which we know is impossible...
Man I am looking forward to the showdown and see exactly what it takes to defeat Kurse...Thor is going to have to bring some serious game...

Yeah I know he's going to be strong, but I want him to actually do seome jaw dropping stuff with his strength. I don't want our only gauge of his strength to be that he's stronger than Thor, I want him to SHOW extremely heavy lifting/tossing strength as well.

Same here, I'm not into Thor needing "help" to defeat villains in his solo films like Iron Man and Spidey.

Yeah, that works better for heroes in ''lower tiers'' of power.
Let the big guns do their thing.

Hey guys, I never read a single Thor comic book but from what I hear about Kurse, He seems really strong and people even say he can destroy the Hulk in a fight? Wanted to confirm it with you Thor fans first.

Hello, ken. Kurse's power is impressive. After Algrim became Kurse, his strength was augmented by the beyonder, making it even greter than that of Thor.
The beyonder amplified it even more, to unknown levels. It's really off the charts.

Kurse power is greater than Thor. Wow, then he's officially stronger than the Hulk. Thanks Odinson for the info. I can't wait to see his strength display in the movie. Am not even sure if Thanos can even take on Kurse.
