It was only a matter of time before a series of rumours made their way online about Thor: Ragnarok. Only this time, it’s all about Cate Blanchett!
After her portrayal of Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, we’d be forgiven for assuming that Blanchett would take up the role of Amora the Enchantress. However, it seems we couldn’t be more wrong.
Geek.com reported that she will instead play Hela, the Asgardian goddess of death, a character inspired by Norse myths.
Apparently she’ll link up with Loki although we’re not exactly 100% certain about what their plan will be at this point in time. All we know is that the prospect of Cate Blanchett and Tom Hiddleston in cahoots together sounds awesome!
“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!”
It’s over a year before the film hits cinemas though so we’re not getting too excited just yet, there’s plenty of time for changes to be made after all.
Thor: Ragnarok will land in UK cinemas 27 October, 2017 ahead of its arrival in the USA on 3 November, 2017.
