Around July this year, the New Zealand actor Karl Urban finished his work with "Star Trek Beyond" where he plays Leonard “Bones” McCoy. With hardly a pause, he immediately flew to Australia to begin filming his parts in Marvel's upcoming film, "Thor: Ragnarok."
A Twitter update from the "Thor: Ragnarok" set said that after two months of hard work, Urban has finally wrapped up filming. The actor made the happy announcement on his official Twitter account, sharing a photo of "Thor" director Taika Waititi along with a message of gratitude to the cast and crew.

IGN first reported in May this year of Urban's participation in the film, saying that the 44-year-old actor showed great excitement for his upcoming role.
“I read a fantastic script that was action-packed and full of great characters. When I heard who was involved and saw the opportunity to work with director Taika Waititi, who I think is one of the most brilliant directors coming through, I made the decision it was something that I wanted to be a part of," Urban said.
In the film, Urban takes the role of "Skurge the Executioner" and in order to look exactly like his comic book alter ego, the "Lord of the Rings" star had to shave his head.
Urban reportedly read up on past issues of "Thor" comics to research the character he would play.
The actor, who also took prominent parts in "Chronicles of Riddick" and "Judge Dredd," felt excited playing the role. He said, "The character is fantastic. He's got a great arc to him. Obviously I can't say too much about it, but I'm really thrilled to be a part of the Marvel universe and to be working on Thor: Ragnarok.”
Marvel Studios officially began Phase 3 of its shared universe of Marvel films with "Captain America: Civil War." The film proved to be such a critical and financial success, and Marvel Studios submitted the movie for the upcoming Oscars awards.
After "Civil War" Phase 3 continues with the U.S. release of "Doctor Strange" on Nov. 4.
"Thor: Ragnarok" is also part of the Third Phase. Rumors say that "Thor" will make an appearance in "Doctor Strange" although this is not yet confirmed.
