Total Film (via CBM) has confirmed that everyone’s favorite astrophysicist from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Dr. Erik Selvig as played by Stellan Skarsgard, will return for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, reprising the role he played in both "Thor" films as well as the first "Avengers" movie.

"I'm going to be in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, a small appearance. It's something really nice," the actor revealed.

Skarsgard went on to reveal that his next appearance could be sans clothes just like one of his scenes in Thor: The Dark World.

"Yeah, I was naked again," he said. "They called my agent and said, 'Do you think Stellan will mind being naked?' My agent laughed his head off. Yeah, I almost insist!"

The outlet then asked what he could say about the upcoming "Avengers" sequel, and although it's not much, he provides an interesting idea of where to expect him in the film's plot.

"First of all, I don't know what I'm allowed to say, but usually they call me in if they need something explained. There's a lot of explanations to do when it comes to that universe."

Opening in theaters on May 1, 2015, Joss Whedon’s highly-anticipated sequel stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann and Paul Bettany.
