Cate Blanchett To Play Hela In ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Early this month the rumor mill got very hot with the possibility of Cate Blanchett joining the cast of Thor: Ragnarok. Then Mark Ruffalo let slip in an interview that he was very excited that Blanchett was a baddie in the movie. The only two realistic options for a female villain in Thor: Ragnarok were the Enchantress and Hela. Geek is reporting that the main villain in the film will be Hela.

If you put Ruffalo’s statement with the Geek article, Marvel Studios wants Blanchet to portray Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. No official announcement has been made by Marvel Studios, at this point, we are just connecting the dots.

The article by Geek also claims to have a partial plot of the film and Hela’s impact on Avengers: Infinity War.

The article suggests that Hela could replace the physical embodiment of Death that Mad Titan Thanos falls in love with when he obtains the Infinity Gauntlet in the comic books on which the Avengers: Infinity War movies are loosely based.

In ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ Hela and Loki will have set their plan well in motion by the time Thor gets wise to what’s going on. Hela ends up creating the incident to Thor’s journey in the film. According to our sources, when Thor confronts Hela, things do not go well. Not only does she banish Thor from Asgard, but she destroys Mjolnir!

The three Asgardian goddesses of fate, the Norns, are said to have warned the Asgardian gods that Hela would prove to be a great danger to them. Odin, ruler of the Asgardian gods, decreed that Hela would become goddess and ruler of the spirits of the dead on the day of her maturity. These spirits were in the other-dimensional realms of Hel and Niflheim, two more of the Nine Worlds, both of which Hela ruled. However, Odin himself directly ruled the souls of Asgardians and their human worshippers who died in battle as heroes, and had the palace of Valhalla built in a distant section of Asgard to house them.

Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi, Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle are working on the script, and the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, and Anthony Hopkins.

Thor: Ragnarok will destroy the universe on November 3, 2017.
