While promoting King of Devil’s Island in a recent interview with HeyUGuys, actor Stellan Skarsgård appears to have confirmed that he will be reprising his role of Dr. Erik Selvik in the upcoming Thor sequel. Until the post-credits scene first rolled at the end of Thor, many fans may not have suspected that the character of Erik Selvik would become such a key player in the exploration of the Cosmic Cube and the subsequent plot hatched by Loki in The Avengers. However, with Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster character becoming a much bigger part of the Thor 2 storyline, it’s not that terribly surprising that Skarsgård will once again make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Tune to the 7:20 mark to hear his comments on theThor sequel.
Directed by Alan Taylor, Thor 2 is expected to arrive in theaters on November 15, 2013.
