Stellan Skarsgård Talks Potential 'Erik Selvig' Return In THOR: RAGNAROK

Before weighing in on his Avengers: Age of Ultron norn cave scene being cut short, actor Stellan Skarsgård talks about Erik Selvig being pivotal to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and whether or not he’ll appear in the next Thor movie. Check it out after the jump!



Even when the God of Thunder was fighting alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Odinson has always received aid from Stellan Skarsgård’s scientist Erik Selvig in some capacity. And given the Swedish actor has appeared in all of the Thor and Avengers movies so far, Digital Spy recently asked Skarsgård whether or not he’ll reprise the supporting role in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
 
“They have an option on me,” said Stellan Skarsgård of his multi-picture deal with Marvel Studios. “I don't know what decisions they'll make, but they have an option on me for the next Thor movie.” When asked what it’s like being a part of an ever-growing cinematic universe, the actor recalled a scene he shot for Thor: The Dark World. “When you're standing naked at Stonehenge, you don't think of the enormousness of the universe you're in,” he said. “You think of the cold and how small your dick will be, if Disney is allowed to show it! But I worked with very good directors and I've had a lot of fun doing it Of course, doing Selvig is not as challenging as it is to do [my new movie] River, but it doesn't mean it's boring. I'm having a lot of fun [playing Selvig].”
 
About his and Chris Hemsworth’s cave scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron and how most of it had ended up on the cutting room floor, Stellan Skarsgård revealed, “I wasn't supposed to be in [the movie] in the first place.” He continued, “Then they called me and they'd written a couple of scenes.  I went and did them and you didn’t know if they were going to end up in the film or not. I want them to make as good a film as possible. I don't care if I'm in it or not." What do you think?
 
So far, the inclusion of Mark Ruffalo’s Incredible Hulk is the only indication that Thor: Ragnarok will once again visit Midgard, or earth, at some point in the movie. Therefore, don’t be too surprised if Erik Selvig and Thor’s other earthbound allies
Jane Foster, Darcy Lewis, etcare announced soon. Hopefully, the Marvel threequel will spend more precious screen time on places we haven’t seen.
