News surrounding Marvel's upcoming superhero movie The Avengers has been quite slow ever since the first trailer was released in October, leaving Marvel, and parent company Disney, to keep The Avengers in the public eye by recently announcing that the movie would be released in 3-D (something that was widely known since the start of production was announced in April). Writer-director Joss Whedon responded by publicly stating that the movie won't be "obnoxiously 3-D".
Finally, more from the movie's cast is being revealed, as individual Avengers actors do press for other movies they are appearing in. While discussing the American remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård (who ironically did not appear in the 2009 Swedish adaptation) discussed his return in The Avengers as Erik Selvig, the character he portrayed in Thor, in an interview with Moviefone. After his appearance in the post-credits scene in Thor, Selvig is likely going to be used as a pawn in Loki's (Tom Hiddleston) evil trickery, but, however Selvig appears, Skarsgård says it won't be for too long.

Of course I am [in The Avengers]. But not very much... it's a small role. I have normal clothes and only show up briefly because people with funny costumes — that's going to be the core of it... There's a lot of people in The Avengers And I was thinking, "How on Earth are you going to get all of those superheroes in a movie and have room for them and still have a story that actually moves forward?" And, also you have to satisfy a lot of actors with at least reasonable material.
