Hela, Grandmaster, Valkyrie and Skurge confirmed for Thor: Ragnarok
Marvel Studios just confirmed the inclusion of Hela, Grandmaster, Valkyrie and Skurge for the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok movie via their website.
Two-time Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett joins the MCU as Hela, while Jeff Goldblum will be the cosmic entity Grandmaster. Valkyrie will be played by Creed’s Tessa Thompson, and Skurge will be played by Karl Urban (Star Trek). The four will join Chris Hemsworth (as Thor), Mark Ruffalo (as Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (as Loki), Idris Elba (as Heimdall) and Sir Anthony Hopkins (as Odin).
Producer Kevin Feige remarked that “with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet.”
It is interesting to note that the report has tagged Hela as a primary antagonist for Thor: Ragnarok. Hopefully we get to see more of the Nine Realms during the movie. Chances are, we might see more indeed.
