Our favorite naked scientist is coming back!
Stellan Skarsgård, in an interview with Total Film
, has confirmed that he will be back for Avengers: Age of Ultron
for “a small appearance. It’s something really nice.”
Having taking on the role of Eric Selvig three times already, the character seems to have become more well known for his nudity than his scientific exploits. But the question is, will we get to see the goods yet again in the new film?
“Yeah, I was naked again,” he said. “They called my agent and said, ‘Do you think Stellan will mind being naked?’ My agent laughed his head off. Yeah, I almost insist! Sometimes with a contract you get a nudity clause, which is fantastic. It’s supposed to protect me from having my genitals exploited, which I doubt anybody would make a dime on.”
As of yet, we don’t have too many details regarding the new Avengers films but Skarsgård was sure to give us a little clue regarding his character’s position in the film. He added, “I don’t know what I’m allowed to say. But usually they call me in if they need something explained. There’s a lot of explanations to do when it comes to that universe.”
Are you excited for Skarsgård’s return and the film in general? Be sure to tell us below!
