Cate Blanchett is rumored to play the new villain in Thor: Ragnarok. After fellow new addition, Mark Ruffalo, let out the info that Marvel is courting the actress to be in the movie, according to Geek.com, the actress would probably play the new character Hela.
And who the hell is Hela?
Hela is a “Marvel comic book character who is the ruler of Hel and the realm of Niflheim.” According to Geek.com, “she’ll be her normal comic book self, complete with her cloak and power over the dead souls of the Nine Realms. Hela will make it to Asgard, where she’ll be in cahoots with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, current motives unknown.”
In spite of this exciting rumor, take this with a grain of salt as Thor: Ragnarok would obviously have a lot of time to develop as it is scheduled to premiere in November, 2017.
