Thor: Ragnarok‘s production is heating up with some interesting casting news, Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine, LOTR) is said to be in talks to join the Thor: Ragnarok cast. She’s joining an already talent heavy cast that includes Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Jamie Alexander and is likely to also include Idris Elba, Natalie Portman, and Sir Anthony Hopkins. What role might the ever-so-talented Blanchett be up for?
It’s gotta be….
That’s right, my best guess would be Hela, the ruler of Hel and Niffleheim, the Asgardian after-world. Hela has been a favorite of mine from the comics for years. Remember the dream sequences in Avengers: Age of Ultron? Here’s Thor’s along with the deleted scene of the cave pool.
That certainly seems to set up a trip to Hel for Thor and company. Blanchett would make a fabulous Hela, she can play the dark side when needed. remember this scene from LOTR?
Yeah I can just see Blanchett as Hela, toying with Thor before she brings the pain.
What do you think?
