Star Trek Beyond’s Karl Urban Discusses Playing Skurge In Thor: Ragnarok

25 May 2016 8:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week, Marvel Studios revealed the full cast list for Thor: Ragnarok, and one of the biggest surprises was the addition of Star Trek actor Karl Urban as Skurge the Executioner. Best known for aligning himself with The Enchantress, the character’s inclusion in the threequel came completely out of nowhere, as did the Dredd star’s decision to join the McU.

It’s pretty obvious that the villain will join Hela in her battle against the God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok, and talking in a recent interview to promote the release of Star Trek Beyond (which recently got an a new character poster featuring Urban as Bones), the actor weighed in on his decision to play the henchman:

“I read a fantastic script that was action-packed and full of great characters. When I heard who was involved — and the cast list dropped yesterday — and [saw] the opportunity to work with [director] Taika Waititi, »

Star Trek Beyond Actor Karl Urban Comments On His 'Skurge The Executioner' Role In Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok

25 May 2016 5:55 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When the full cast list for Thor: Ragnarok was revealed the other day, there was a lot of buzz around the fact that Karl Urban (Dredd, Star Trek Beyond, The Lord Of The Rings) had been cast as fan-favourite Asgardian hard-case, Skurge the Executioner. This is a character fans have been hoping to see go up against the God of Thunder since the first Thor movie was announced, and now they'll finally get to see it happen - with a great actor in the role to boot. IGN caught up with Urban and asked him about his decision to sign on to play the villain in the Marvel threequel. "I read a fantastic script that was action-packed and full of great characters. When I heard who was involved -- and the cast list dropped yesterday -- and [saw] the opportunity to work with [director] Taika Waititi, who I think is one of »

Karl Urban Talks 'Thor: Ragnarok'

24 May 2016 11:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last Friday, it was announced that Karl Urban would be making their way over the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the form of the Marvel baddie Skurge the Executioner. While Urban is no stranger to genre films (he tore up the screen in Dredd, and a trailer just came out for his latest film, Star Trek Beyond), there is something a bit interesting about him making his way over to the superhero film genre. 

In a recent interview with IGN, the actor explained how he got involved with Marvel and ended up in the film, and also gave us an oh-so-minor comments on the character he will be playing.

“I read a fantastic script that was action-packed and full of great characters. When I heard who was involved -- and the cast list dropped yesterday -- and [saw] the opportunity to work with [Thor: Ragnarok director] Taika Waititi, who I think is one of the most brilliant directors coming through, »

Why Dredd Was A Flop, According To Karl Urban

22 May 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You can have all the fan buzz and critical acclaim in the world behind your back, and sometimes the box office still crashes and burns when it's your turn to bow. Just ask anyone behind the 2012 cult favorite Dredd, which has won a fanbase rabid enough to have a steady demand for a sequel. Those hopes aren't too high though, as even Urban can tell you, the botched marketing job on the first film pretty much ensured a long, hard road to any sort of a sequel. During talks that Yahoo had reported on between the Star Trek Beyond star and the press, Karl Urban wasn't shy to point out the obvious flaw in Lionsgate's attempt at drumming up interest for Dredd's reboot of the Judge Dredd mythos. More specifically, Urban laid out the failure, as well as the justification for any sort of sequel, »

Thor: Ragnarok Lands Jeff Goldblum and Karl Urban as Villains

20 May 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though the first two installments of the Thor franchise aren't exactly regarded as the best films that Marvel Studios has released so far, fans love the character. By the looks of things, the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok could easily be the best yet, and it just got better. We already knew that Mark Ruffalo would be joining Chris Hemsworth as the Hulk, but Marvel just announced two brand new additions to the already stacked cast. Jeff Goldblum of Independence Day fame and Karl Urban of Dredd and Star Trek fame have both been added to the cast of the upcoming film in villain roles.

Marvel made the announcement on Friday, saying that Jeff Goldblum will be playing the villain Grandmaster and that Karl Urban will be playing Skurge. In the announcement, the studio also firmed up and reaffirmed some already released casting with Cate Blanchett playing the film's main villain Hela »

Karl Urban, Jeff Goldblum Join "Thor: Ragnarok"

20 May 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In a brilliant bit of casting, both Karl Urban ("Dredd," "Star Trek") and Jeff Goldblum have joined the cast of Taika Waititi's "Thor: Ragnarok" for Marvel Studios.

The duo join an impressive cast list that so far includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Cate Blanchett as the villain Hela - the press release announcing this casting finally confirming the roles of Thompson and Blanchett.

Goldblum will play the eccentric Grandmaster while Urban will play Skurge. In the comics Grandmaster is one of the oldest living beings in the universe, an immortal cosmic game player whose preferred game is pitting two opposing teams against each other. Skurge (aka. The Executioner) is an Asgardian and villain of Thor who at one point joins him in a mission to Hel where he sacrifices himself to stall Ragnarok.

Ghostbusters: Why is everyone insane?

19 May 2016 5:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When the news of the Ghostbusters reboot broke, I worked at a company that has a notoriously terrifying comments section; in the entire history of my time there only one article required that comments be shut down: the announcement of an all female Ghostbusters. Contained within that comment section were some of the most violent assassinations of the female gender that I’ve ever seen. No one could have predicted the firestorm that would haunt this film. On the surface, Ghostbusters is merely a new addition to an old franchise that general audiences may -- or may not -- be familiar with. So how has this little comedy ignited an international firestorm? I was one of those not much interested in a reboot, remake, or sequel in the franchise. Dan Aykroyd had been teasing the prospect for so many years that eventually it felt best to just leave well enough »

Karl Urban says “it would be a privilege to make another Dredd”

14 May 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact its getting on for four years since the release of Dredd, there remains considerable fan support for a sequel, or more recently, a show on the likes of Netflix, Amazon or HBO. Just last month, Karl Urban teased that “conversations are happening” with regards to a follow-up, and now the actor has been discussing the possibility of him returning to Mega-City One in an interview with Den of Geek.

“The unfortunate theatrical release of Dredd and the manner in which it was mishandled made it problematic for Dredd 2 to be immediately funded and produced in the same fashion,” said Urban. “But the success it has achieved in all post-theatrical mediums has definitely strengthened the argument in favour of a sequel. But it’s not an easy sell… Dredd has definitely achieved a cult like status, I believe, like Blade Runner. It was ahead of its time, but not by much. »

Karl Urban Says First "Dredd" Not A Failure

13 May 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Since its release to strong reviews but poor box-office, talk of a sequel to 2012's "Dredd" has popped up on occasion with the film's core fanbase keen to latch on to any hint of it going forward.

The film's star Karl Urban has spoken very briefly about the possibility in the past month or so with comments that there's interest and even discussions regarding some sort of follow-up - be it another movie or an event series - to premiere on a streaming service.

This week, Urban has finally spoken at length about the possibility with Den of Geek, acknowledging that though the first film was a financial dud, he doesn't think it's a failure like the film's screenwriter Alex Garland ("Ex Machina") did:

"Alex Garland has gone on record to say that Dredd was a failure. I disagree. The movie itself was not a failure, in fact it was a critical success, »

Karl Urban Weighs In On Dredd Future, Actor Keen On “Worthy” Sequel

13 May 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alex Garland and Pete Travis’ rendition of Mega-City One’s Judge, Jury and Executioner may have struck a chord with fans four years ago, but a lowly box office performance effectively deemed Dredd to be a one-hit wonder.

That hasn’t quelled reports of a sequel battling against the odds to enter production, particularly in recent weeks with lead star Karl Urban entertaining the possibility of Dredd 2 setting up shop via online streaming (read: Amazon Prime or Netflix) in a move that would welcome the actor’s return in the famous armored suit.

Speaking to Den of Geek ahead of this year’s Star Trek Beyond, Urban reflected on Dredd‘s misfortunes, which he believes can largely be attributed to a botched marketing campaign.

The Judge is in the house: Karl Urban chats to us about Judge Dredd, and where he stands on Dredd 2…

It’s been nearly four years now since Karl Urban kept his helmet on his head in the most recent screen take on 2000Ad’s Judge Dredd. You more than likely know what happened next, too. The film won over fans, crashed at the box office, and chances of a sequel diminished.

Diminished, but never died. And thanks to a fervent fan campaign, there remains hope of sending Karl Urban back to Mega City One. Here, Urban answers our questions about the past and future of Judge Dredd

Better on Netflix: which failed sci-fi and fantasy epics deserve to stream again?

Dredd star Karl Urban says the Mega City One lawman could return via the magic of streaming. Which other box-office bombs are ripe for resurrection?

Not so long ago, if you wanted to see a revival of that much-loved cult classic adored by fans but scorned by the masses, your best bet was most likely some kind of crowdfunding campaign. These days, streaming sites such as Netflix are playing Dr Frankenstein with everything from Chinese martial arts epics (the utterly appalling Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny) to cheesy noughties teen comedies (recent miniseries Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, based on the 2001 indie favourite). So which other movies could do with a jolt of streaming-fuelled defibrillation? Come on Netflix (or Amazon), resurrect these little gems for us and we’ll hand over our monthly subscription fees with a toe-tapping jig and a smile as wide as the Ganges. »

Karl Urban gives update on that potential Dredd sequel series

3 May 2016 12:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since its release in 2012, fans of Karl Urban’s Dredd have been clamoring for a sequel. Unfortunately, there weren’t enough of those fans to rake in enough cash at the box office to make that a surefire possibility, but that hasn’t stopped them (or Urban himself) from petitioning for another action-packed adventure into Mega-City One.

Just last week, Urban supported the idea of bringing a Dredd follow-up to Netflix or Amazon, and now he’s offered fans another small glimmer of hope. Over the weekend, Urban attended the Calgary Expo, and said during a Q&A that conversations are happening.”

No one expected this kind of support behind Dredd, the 2012 cult favorite starring Karl Urban that improved in every way upon what Sylvester Stallone had previously done to the comic book character. At the time of its release, there were those who were ready to criticize it for being too close premise-wise to Gareth Evans' The Raid: Redemption, and others who saw it as another comic cast-off that...

Karl Urban Reveals “Conversations Are Happening” Regarding Dredd TV Series

2 May 2016 2:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Of all the very many movies that have been spun out into TV series – think 12 Monkeys, 24: Legacy and, er, Minority Report – over the past two years or so, one project that appears ripe for the seralized treatment is Dredd.

Granted, Pete Travis’ high-octane reboot was considered a financial dud when it launched into theaters four years ago, but thanks to an impassioned fanbase and strong home video sales, there remains a flicker of hope that the Karl Urban-led action series could carve out a future of its own. Indeed, just last week the actor himself stoked the embers of excitement by pledging his support, revealing that he’d be willing to don the iconic suit and helmet as Mega-City One’s judge, jury and executioner.

There’s a new wrinkle to the tale, though, now that Urban has teased that “conversations are happening” regarding the possibility of either »

Karl Urban May Return in Judge Dredd TV Series

2 May 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2012, Karl Urban starred in the critically-acclaimed movie Dredd 3D, which was beloved by critics, and the very few fans who actually went to see the movie. The reboot posted an impressive 78% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but it only made $13.4 million domestically and $35.6 million worldwide, from a $50 million budget. Despite the financial failure, there has been talk of a possible sequel for quite some time. As it turns out, the character may actually be eyeing a return on the small screen instead.

Last month, Dredd star Karl Urban hinted on his verified Twitter page that he would love to make a sequel with streaming giants such as Netflix of Amazon, teasing that there is a "gold mine of awesome Mega City 1 stories." Over the weekend, the actor appeared at the Calgary Expo, where he was asked if Dredd could continue on either Amazon or Netflix, and the actor »
