Alexander Ludwig of Vikings teases joining the Marvel Universe, saying, “If it’s a wonderful job!”

Alexander Ludwig, who stars as Thor in the upcoming Starz series Heels, has spoken out about his chances of joining the world’s biggest comic book franchise.

Following Disney’s merger with Fox in 2019, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is on the search for new heroes and villains. Alexander Ludwig, who played the warrior Bjorn Ironside for almost five years and has a new series called Heels premiering this week on Starz, may be an excellent addition to the superpowered roster.

Alexander Ludwig recently spoke with This Website about his possibilities of appearing in Marvel’s ongoing TV shows and big films.

Ludwig returns to screens this Sunday in Heels, a new wrestling drama from showrunner Michael Waldron, following his tenure as the son of Ragnar Lothbrok (played by Travis Fimmel).

Waldron’s name will be familiar to comic book fans as the creator and writer of Marvel’s recent smash hit Disney+ series Loki.

He’s also written the screenplay for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the next MCU sequel starring Benedict Cumberbatch and WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen.

This publication recently inquired if his collaboration with the screenplay could pave the door for him to don a cape in the near future.

“I think one outfit of spandex is plenty for me for now!” the Canadian actor chuckled.

He then teased, “But we’ll see,” leaving his choices wide open.

In Heels, Ludwig plays Ace Spade, a small-town pro wrestler who is persuaded to ‘turn heel’ by his brother Jack (Stephen Amell) to take on a more sinister character in the ring.

Taking on this difficult new identity necessitated a change from his bulky Norse armour to something a little more svelte, replete with a pair of tight-fitting tiger print leggings.

Despite his worries about some of the Marvel actor’s questionable costumes, Ludwig would be interested in joining the cast if the appropriate role came along.

“If it’s a wonderful role, 100 percent,” he continued.

“Telling fantastic stories and being a part of a great character is all that matters to me.”


Ludwig has a huge blockbuster heritage, as fans who have spent up watching his career will know.

The 29-year-old began his career as a young adult actor in films such as The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising and Race to Witch Mountain.

Then he. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
