Stellan Skarsgard reveals important detail about 'Avengers: Endgame'; find out here

London: Veteran actor Stellan Skarsgard has said that he will not be seen in upcoming Marvel tentpole "Avengers: Endgame".

The actor, who plays astrophysicist Dr Erik Selvig in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, also did not appear in last year's "Infinity War". "No, I'm not (in Endgame). I've done four (MCU movies) and they have contracted for five, and they haven't called me yet. They usually call me when they need some weird plot to be explained in a quasi-scientific way. "I thought it was a one-time thing, but the contract said if they wanted me they could use me for five films, but I didn't think they'd use me for four so it was a surprise. It was a pleasant surprise because I've had a lot of fun on those shoots," Skarsgard told Metro magazine. Selvig first appeared in the 2011 film "Thor".

The 67-year-old actor went on to reprise the role in "The Avengers" (2012), "Thor: The Dark World" (2013), and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (2015). Actor Tessa Thompson recently revealed that a follow-up to "Thor: Ragnarok" was in the works at Marvel.
