Skarsgard Won’t Be In “Thor: Ragnarok”

Stellan Skarsgard has so far in appeared in four Marvel Studios films – the first two “Thor” movies and both “Avengers” films. It’s thought his character Dr. Erik Selvig would be returning for both “Thor: Ragnarok” and the upcoming two-part “Avengers: Infinity War” saga but that’s not the case.

Speaking with Den of Geek, Skarsgard confirms he won’t be back for the next “Thor” and hopes, but isn’t sure, he’ll be involved in the new “Avengers”: “I have a five-film deal with them, and they still have one option. ‘Thor 3’ is not on my slate, but maybe the next Avengers.”

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are penning the scripts for the two-part ‘Infinity War’ which Anthony and Joe Russo are helming and shooting entirely in IMAX. The first part is released May 4th 2018, the second May 3rd 2019.
