When actor Karl Urban was announced as joining the cast of Thor: Ragnarok as Skurge the Executioner, the first question many fans asked was whether or not he’d end up shaving his head. Well, the answer may have come about a month later, but Urban finally revealed what he’ll look like in Ragnarok with an Instagram post early this morning. Although the film has been filming since July 4th, Urban has been keeping busy on the promo tour for Star Trek: Beyond and only just now made his way to the set to kick off filming last night. And shortly after his arrival, it was revealed that yes, he shaved his head for the role.
