Speaking with Digital Spy, Stellan Skarsgård talked about his role in The Avengers, which is set to be released in the UK on Thursday and Thor 2, in which he revealed that he will be reprising his role as Dr. Selvig. Previously, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston were the only confirmed returning cast members but I think it’s safe to say the entire original cast will return (but hopefully not Kat Dennings).
“I haven’t seen the film yet but it’s the same character as in the first Thor film, although something happens in The Avengers which changes him and which gave me the pleasure of playing something different.”
And here’s what he had to say on Thor 2:
“They’re working on it and they hope to start shooting in the fall, and I hope to be in it. They have me on contract so… And I’d love to work with those guys again. I’m having fun in the Marvel films.”
And finally, the actor gives his thoughts on the original director Kenneth Branagh, who is being replaced in the sequel by Game Of Thrones director Alan Taylor:
“He’s an actor so he understands completely what you need and what your fears are. He loves actors and I had a lot of fun working with him. I’d definitely work with him again.”
