Despite promoting Star Trek Beyond, Karl Urban who plays Dr. McCoy couldn’t help but talk about his next role in a major movie franchise. Confirmed earlier this year, Karl Urban will play the role of Skurge the Executioner in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnaork. While speaking to Zap2it, Urban revealed that he would be sharing plenty of screen time with, Cate Blanchett who stars as the film’s main villain, Hela.
“I just started shooting Ragnarok on the Gold Coast with Chris Hemsworth, I read a fun, action-packed script and love my character, Skurge. I get to work a lot with Cate Blanchett. She and I were in Lord of the Rings together, but we never actually shared any screentime. I’m looking forward to that; should be a fun experience.”
Urban had also spoke a bit more about his character, Skurge in the new Marvel film.
