Default Karl Urban IS Skurge The Executioner

Quote:
Two-time Oscar®-winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Carol, “Cinderella”) joins Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum (the upcoming “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Jurassic Park”) who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (“Creed,” “Selma”) who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban (“Star Trek” trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”) who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.

Perfect call, so long as they aren't used as badly as Kurse and Malekith.

Perhaps Skurge is working for Hela in this film instead?

Was wondering if/when he'd become part of the MCU. Just wish they'd introduced Skurge and Enchantress together.

Really like this. Skurge should be well played by Karl. I loved how he played Eomer in LOTR and I can see him channeling that same gruff, practical attitude into a slightly more evail Skurge. Very interested to see who plays the Enchantress now. And, as we all know from what happened with Kurse (), it's all about how they write him, and how he interacts with Thor. Hopefully the two are more closely matched, or maybe we'll get a Hulk vs Kurse, Thor vs Enchantress battle. That sounds like it could be interesting.

I'd rather see Viva Bianca. If Charlize Theron appears in the MCU she should be Shana the She Devil if Black Panther 2 decides to use Man Ape as the villain.

Karl Urban is great. This makes me really happy, but also kinda sad because Skurge isn't a hugely important role. I'd rather see him play a hero over several films. I hope Skurge isn't a one and done villain.

If they can do in a film what Simonson did with Executioner it will be more than an important enough part.

Oh I meant "important" as in a main or supporting hero character. I hope you're right about him having a big role in this one.

I am with you there. It would be shame to waste Urban and not make the most of him.

It's too bad they can't get any of the guys from "Black Sails" into these Thor films. There's some real bad mofos on that show like Tobey Stephens and Tom Hopper.

I could totally picture Stephens as Skurge.

Big fan of the actor. Great for the role.

But how they gonna call this cast list complete without Amora? Dont tell me Hela will be replacing her?

Urban is freakin badass, always happy to see this guy. He was my pick for Moon Knight though, dammit!!!

Oh well. He will not disappoint. Between this and Cate B I am suddenly VERY interested in this. Sadly the first two Thor films are not aging well in my own ranking of the MCU.
