Cate Blanchett turns supervillain in the first look at Thor: Ragnarok
Apr 13, 2017, 01:36
It offered glimpses of Hela, the movie's powerful new villain played by Cate Blanchett. We have already seen evidence of Thanos' murderous rampage in the MCU - some will remember the sad story of the death of Drax's family in Guardians of the Galaxy. That might explain the cheeky Easter egg hidden in the "Ragnarok" trailer. Hela takes over Asgard, despite efforts from Thor, his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Heimdall (Idris Elba).
2011's Thor and 2013's Thor: The Dark World tend to end up near the bottom of fans' rankings of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies so far, and their box office, while perfectly acceptable (over $1 billion combined, worldwide), hasn't been almost as vigorous as that of fellow Avengers like Iron Man and Captain America.
Thor Ragnarok is the third instalment of the Thor franchise after Thor of 2011 and Thor: The Dark World of 2013.
We then get a good look at just how bad Hela is, as Thor hurls Mjolnir at her, only for the goddess to catch it with ONE HAND, and crush it to bits! Sadly, none of them came to the big screen and both Thor movies were drab affairs compounded by weak plots and rather lifeless acting.
