While it may seem like every Marvel Cinematic Universe character is appearing in Avengers: Endgame, one noteworthy actor who has played a role in multiple movies has confirmed he won't be in the film.

In an interview with Metro, Stellan Skarsgard, who plays Erik Selvig in the MCU, confirmed he would not make an appearance in Avengers: Endgame, saying, "No I’m not. I’ve done four [Marvel films] and they have me contracted for five and they haven’t called me yet."

Skarsgard played Selvig in Thor, The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age of Ultron. While many were left wondering what became of Selvig following his recovery from the Mind Stone, it appears we won't get the answer to those question in Endgame. However, as there remains one film in Skarsgard contract, he could still make an appearance in the future, potentially in a film like Thor 4.
