Ray Stevenson Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD And ‘Volstagg’ Potentially Joining THE AVENGERS 2
Commenting on whether Volstagg could show up in The Avengers 2, the actor behind the Voluminous Asgardian, Ray Stevenson, boasts higher stakes for Asgard and Christopher Eccleston’s Malekith!
Amid the premiere of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Red Carpet News TV caught up with English thespian Ray Stevenson as he talked excessively about his reprisal as Volstagg the Voluminous in Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. Promising higher stakes for Asgard and Christopher Eccleston’s malevolent portrayal of Malekith the Accursed, Stevenson also comments on possibly joining The Avengers 2.
“Asgard's under great threat, I mean the biggest threat it's ever had. The worlds have been turned upside down, the stakes are a lot higher, it's a lot grittier and darker. It's gonna be a lot of fun! I saw Christopher Eccleston on set two or three times. The man is just a construement sort of, malevolent, dark force. He's under so much ...make-up that took hours and hours [to apply]. It takes a lot, but he's bringing something very very dark and special to it. There's always potential [for Volstagg to show up in The Avengers sequel]. There’s always room for a big guy in the end.”
Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
