If you’re like many Marvel fans, you loved “Captain America: Civil War,” yet couldn’t help but feel like the movie was missing two essential Avengers elements: A big, green one and another with long hair and a hammer.
Worry no more, because you’ll soon get your Hulk/Thor fix. This time around, they’re bringing along Jeff Goldblum, Cate Blanchett and Karl Urban — the latter of whom is eager to talk about his role in the highly-anticipated, currently-shooting “Thor: Ragnarok.”
“I just started shooting ‘Ragnarok’ on the Gold Coast with Chris Hemsworth,” he tells Zap2it about the Australian shoot not far from either of the actors’ native lands.
“I read a fun, action-packed script and love my character, Skurge,” he says of the Adgardian warrior, who interacts with Hela, the ruler of Hel and Niflheim.
“I get to work a lot with Cate Blanchett,” he says of his reunion with the Oscar-winning actress who will play that role. “She and I were in ‘Lord of the Rings’ together, but we never actually shared any screentime. I’m looking forward to that, it should be a fun experience.”
Targeting a Nov. 3, 2017 release, Urban says that “Ragnarok” will be very different than the two Thor films that have preceded it, mostly because of the unlikely team-up at the center of the script.
“I think this is going to feel like a buddy-buddy Thor movie,” he laughs. “Starring Hulk and Thor, they’ll be good together.”
