[POTENTIAL SPOILERS] Karl Urban Describes Skurge In Thor: Ragnarok

Posted by August 7, 2017 Comment

There was a huge Star Trek convention in Las Vegas this weekend, Creation Entertainment’s 16th Annual Official Star Trek Convention, and Karl Urban had a panel. Of course, he was asked plenty of questions about his other future projects. The next big movie Urban has is Thor: Ragnarok, and Urban revealed some details about his character Skyrge. We don’t know if this is a spoiler or not yet so if you want to know nothing about Ragnarok then this one is worth skipping. Trek Movie was at the panel and got some new information on his character. As previously stated this could be considered a mild spoiler so last warning.

We don’t know that much about Skurge but we do have a new detail that could be interesting.

My character is operating the Bifrost device and suddenly Cate Blanchett walks through the Bifrost and I very astutely realized I either joined her or die. So my character is a survivalist. The journey of Skurge is really “OK, now you made a pact with the devil and it comes with a price.” That price is constantly upped through the movie and that is his journey.

The detail there is that Skurge is operating the Bifrost and not Heimdall (Idris Elba). Thus far we’ve hardly seen Heimdall in any of the promotional material, so we don’t know what kind of role he’s going to play, but if he’s not operating the Bifrost then where is Heimdal and what can we expect from him? We also learn that Skurge is a bad guy in the sense that it was either that or die. That adds a whole new dimension to his character we didn’t previously know about.

Summary: Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

Thor: Ragnarok, directed Taika Waititi, also stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Idris Elba, and Mark Ruffalo. It will be released on November 3rd.
