Karl Urban has made his mark within the Star Trek universe and now is ready to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Urban will be playing Asgardian character Skurge the Executioner in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok.
While being interviewed at a recent Star Trek fan event, Urban opened up about his new role within Marvel and how this will be a really great character arc to bring to the big screen.
“I read a fantastic script that was action-packed and full of great characters,” Urban told me. “When I heard who was involved — and the cast list dropped yesterday — and [saw] the opportunity to work with [director] Taika Waititi, who I think is one of the most brilliant directors coming through, I made the decision it was something that I wanted to be a part of. And the character is fantastic. He’s got a great arc to him. Obviously I can’t say too much about it, but I’m really thrilled to be a part of the Marvel universe and to be working on Thor: Ragnarok.”
