Should Surtur return? It’s not like he can destroy Asgard again…
Fans last saw Clancy Brown as Surtur destroying Asgard in Thor: Ragnarok, and the star said he’d happily reprise the role again.
Clancy Brown has an incredibly recognizable voice for most fans after voicing heroes and villains in a whole range of animated shows like Justice League, Superman: The Animated series, Star Wars: Rebels and Avengers Assemble. He also brings a brilliant presence to the screen in films like Starship Troopers and The Shawshank Redemption, but he also appeared in Thor: Ragnarok back in 2017 as the fire giant, Surtur. And although the film ended with Surtur obliterating Asgard, Clancy Brown would happily return to the character.
In a new interview with ComicBook.com ahead of his latest film, The Mortuary Collection, Thor: Ragnarok star Clancy Brown revealed that Surtur was fun to play and he would “happily” return to the role. Although don’t expect him to turn up in Thor: Love and Thunder alongside Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth, as Brown revealed that he didn’t sign up to appear in multiple movies. He noted that while it was a fun role, it wasn’t a pivotal role in his career. Take a look below.
“That was a voiceover character pretty much. So, I mean, I would happily do it again, because it would be a mo-cap, and that would be fun, and a voice, but they didn’t sign me up for any multi-picture deal or anything like that. If they call me up, and we can reach a deal, then I’ll do it. If they call me up, and they don’t want to pay me, then I won’t. I mean, it’s not that big a deal. It’s not a real character to me anyway, Surtur.”
