Thor: Ragnarok 3D
Two-time OscarÂ®-winner Cate Blanchett (â€œBlue Jasmine,â€ â€œCarol, â€œCinderellaâ€) joins Marvel Studiosâ€™ â€œThor: Ragnarokâ€ as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum (the upcoming â€œIndependence Day: Resurgence,â€ â€œThe Grand Budapest Hotel,â€ â€œJurassic Parkâ€) who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (â€œCreed,â€ â€œSelmaâ€) who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban (â€œStar Trekâ€ trilogy, â€œThe Lord of the Rings: Return of the Kingâ€) who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Rounding out the cast for the film is three-time OscarÂ®-nominee Mark Ruffalo (â€œSpotlight,â€ â€œThe Kids Are All Right,â€ â€œFoxcatcherâ€), reprising his role of Bruce Banner/the Hulk from â€œMarvelâ€™s The Avengersâ€ and Marvelâ€™s â€œAvengers: Age of Ultron.â€
â€œThe continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and 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,â€ said Producer Kevin Feige. â€œThe sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen canâ€™t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible."
Thorâ€™s new cast members join returning stars Chris Hemsworth (â€œRush,â€ â€œIn the Heart of the Sea,â€ â€œGhostbustersâ€) in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston (â€œCrimson Peak,â€ â€œThe Night Manager,â€ â€œKong: Skull Islandâ€) as Thorâ€™s adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Golden GlobeÂ® and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Idris Elba (â€œThe Dark Tower,â€ â€œLuther,â€ â€œBeasts of No Nationâ€) as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Academy AwardÂ®-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins (â€œSilence of the Lambs,â€ â€œNixon,â€ â€œHitchcockâ€) again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard.
â€œThor: Ragnarok,â€ the third installment of Marvelâ€™s popular Norse Super Hero, is directed by OscarÂ®-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (â€œTwo Cars, One Night,â€ â€œWhat We Do in the Shadows,â€ â€œHunt for the Wilderpeopleâ€). Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis Dâ€™Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee.
