Thor: Ragnarok is already looking to be an interesting film, as it will follow Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and will be the lead into Avengers: Infinity War Part 1. Then you add Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Birth.Death.Movie. is reporting that this will be the darkest film to date, and then Taika Waititi was brought in to direct.
Other interesting elements to the movie are the possibility of the introduction of Valkyrie, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first major female villain.
“If Valkyrie is really coming to the big screen, that will make two high-profile female roles being cast in Ragnarok, because I have heard that Marvel is also planning on bringing their first major female villain into their cinematic universe. I don’t know who the character is for sure, but there are a couple likely candidates from Asgard: Amora the Enchantress, a sorceress; or Hela, Queen of the Dead (and also Loki’s daughter but that won’t necessarily be the case if Hela does indeed get the cinematic treatment),” posted Lainey Gossip.
What villain do you want to see enter the MCU; Hela ‘Queen of the Dead,’ or Amora the Enchantress?
Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron or Nicole Kidman would be a perfect Hela. Emma Watson would make and interesting Valkyrie, to where Olivia Wilde would be the badass choice.
Hela ‘Queen of the Dead’
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.
Amora the Enchantress
Amora was born somewhere in Asgard, her parentage unknown. While still in adolescence, she ran away to the land of the Norns and apprenticed herself to Karnilla, one of the most powerful sorceresses in all the Asgardian dimension. There she studied all the basic arts of Asgardian magic until Karnilla expelled her for being too undisciplined. She picked up further mystical skills from seducing other Asgardian magi and wizards.
