Karl Urban's Thor: Ragnarok character, Skurge, is going to make a deal with the devil.
Speaking at the Star Trek Las Vegas convention, Urban described the role of Skurge the Execution in Thor: Ragnarok and the Faustian nature of his relationship with Hela.
"My character is operating the Bifrost device and suddenly Cate Blanchett walks through the Bifrost and I very astutely realized I either joined her or die," Urban says (via Trek Movie). "So my character is a survivalist. The journey of Scourge is really 'OK, now you made a pact with the devil and it comes with a price.' That price is constantly upped through the movie and that is his journey."
That's a bit of a change from Skurge's story in the Marvel Comics universe, where he served Enchantress out of a save of love and devotion. That changed in Skurge's most popular story, where he broke free of his infatuation, grew tired of being manipulated, and held the bridge at Gjallerbru.
Skurge the Executioner an Asgardian in the Marvel Comics universe created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. He first appeared in Journey into Mystery #103 in 1964. The Executioner was a longtime Thor villain and a founding member of the Master of Evil.
