Marvel's [Thor: Ragnarok](tag:956858) is shaping up to have a Hulk-size heaping on its plate. A recent rumor/leak suggesting the stunning Cate Blanchett will be playing a Norse Goddess and ruler of the underworld, 'Hela'. She has a vast array of powers, which include teleportation, telepathy, a death touch - and much more. She resides in Hel, which is basically as it sounds!
I am curious about how big of a role will she have in the upcoming Thor movie. Rumors are suggesting that she'll strip Mjolnir (Thor's hammer) away from Thor! Taika Waititi , the director, will have the task of balancing many characters, and also keeping the pace light and friendly. This could possibly be the finale Thor as we know him, and they'll have to tie-up a lot of loose ends.
You'll need a satisfactory goodbye from Odin, and also Marvel must decide what to do with Loki after the movie. Also, will Hulk come back to Earth, after he's done with his Midnight Run? Will they introduce Surtur, and what is going on with the Tesseract? What will become of the Warrior's Three, and will Lady Sif have a chance to become the next Thor? What will Jane and Darcy do in the movie, if primarily set in space? Will Thanos comes to Asgard, and show why he's the most powerful being in the Galaxy? Almost all of these questions, must be answered in some sort of way - so the trilogy can feel somewhat complete.
I am very excited to see Cate Blanchett, portray such a powerful supervillain! She could be extremely important for events to come, in many different capacities, in any given story - and I wonder, how will this setup Avengers: Infinity War? We'll be able to see Thor and Hulk in a buddy pic - and one of the greatest actresses of our generation, play a Norse Goddess! Thank you Marvel Studios, for making dreams come true!
'Thor: Ragnarok' hit theaters on November 3rd, 2017!
