The Marvel Cinematic Universe officially kicked off Phase 3 earlier this year with the debut of Captain America: Civil War, and will continue on with the release of Doctor Strange later this fall. But, many films slated for release in Phase 3 have generated plenty of excitement among fans, including the third installment in the Thor series.
As Thor: Ragnarok continues on with principal photography, the film’s awesome cast continues to please fans with their antics, including two teasers from well-known Jurassic Park actors Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill as well as a cross-Marvel interview between Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston. Though fans of the Norse superhero will have to wait over a year to see the latest in the Thor franchise, that hasn’t stopped everyone from sharing tidbits from the set.
The latest Ragnarok cast member to throw his hat in the social media ring is Karl Urban, who notably plays Leonard “Bones” McCoy in the rebooted Star Trek films. The actor, who maintains a notoriously eccentric Twitter account, posted a message today to announce he had finished his part on the film. Take a look, below:
The tweet, which praises the film’s cast and crew, also accompanies an image of Ragnarok director Taika Waititi as he calls the shots on set. Urban plays Skurge, one of Ragnarok‘s two villains and a kind of Norse super-warrior who’s probably doing evil deeds for Cate Blanchett’s Hela. Urban revealed earlier this year that Skurge has a “great arc” in the film, which also leads us to believe he may live up to the character’s storyline in the original comics and sacrifice himself for the good guys in the end. We also got to see a sneak peek of Urban as Skurge back in July, when the actor posted pictures of his character-appropriate haircut.
In this latest tweet, Waititi sits in front of a laptop, which appears to display stills or footage of a man speaking with a woman. The woman, on the right, looks like Lady Sif, but we’re not sure who the man on the right is. Feel free to hazard a guess in the comments, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on Thor: Ragnarok as the film wraps principal shooting and creeps ever closer to cinemas worldwide.
