Stellan Skarsgard Talks Thor Sting
Exclusive: Joss Whedon directed it...

20 May 2011  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  

submit to reddit

Our Chris spoke to Stellan Skarsgard in Cannes yesterday and, while talking to him about Melancholia, Lars von Trier's exclusion from the festival and all manner of other things, he asked him about filming the sting for Thor, in which Skarsgard's Erik Selvig comes face-to-face with Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury.

And, intriguingly, Skarsgard told us that the segment wasn't directed by Thor's Kenneth Branagh, but by The Avengers' Joss Whedon. Hmm... Click here to hear Skarsgard's thoughts on it all, including what The Avengers might hold for him. 

 

The Avengers is out on May 4, 2012. Thor is, of course, already out.
