New Details About Hela in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Revealed

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is set to be a unique film in the Thor and Marvel franchise. Instead of spending more time on Earth, the film will show a more galactic side to the God of Thunder and will introduce a more threatening villain.

In its latest issue, Entertainment Weekly sat down with Cate Blanchett and discussed her role in Thor: Ragnarok as the villainous Hela. While the actress couldn’t say much, she did reveal some interesting new details, including where Hela comes from in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“She’s been locked away for millennia getting more and more cross, and then, with a mistake, she gets unleashed and she ain’t getting back in that box.”

Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
