Stellan wowed by packed Avengers

Stellan Skarsgard has revealed how impressed he was that Joss Whedon packed so many characters into The Avengers.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actor is among the all-star cast of the highly anticipated Marvel comic book movie, featuring superheroes including Thor, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Captain America.

Stellan revealed: "The Avengers yeah well, when I read the script I thought it was an amazing achievement to be able to squeeze in so many heroes in one story and still make the story work.

"And I think Joss Whedon really did that, so we'll see."

He added: "My part is very small because I'm not a hero, I'm just a normal human being!"

The 60-year-old actor reveals he has a busy year next year, as well as the release of The Avengers.

He said: "I have a couple of independent films and maybe Thor 2 and then I have another Lars Von Trier film."
