Seeing as Skarsgard has played the role of Dr. Erik Selvig in both Thor and The Avengers it didn’t seem too much of a stretch to assume that he’d be coming back for Alan Taylor’s Thor 2. However, it’s always nice to hear it from the horses mouth. In a recent interview with Hey U Guy, he had this to say:
“I will try to combine Thor 2 which starts in August and goes to the end of December with the new Lars Von Trier film.”
So there you have it Selvig fans. We’ll definitely be seeing more of him and hopefully he’ll not just be used as a patsy in this one. In fact, I’d quite like to see him getting jealous of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, becoming a Viking himself and then seeing the two battle it out bare chested in the rain!
Come on then you big blonde Nancy!
