Blanchett’s Hela Gets A “Thor” Featurette

Marvel Studios has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for “Thor: Ragnarok,” this one putting the focus squarely on Cate Blanchett’s villain Hela.

The clip comes as co-star Idris Elba spoke with EW about a desire to play a major superhero role in the future and that his role as Heimdall in the new film was, for the first time, fun: “The last one [Ragnarok] was fun. The others weren’t fun. They’re work. But on this one, Taika [Waititi, the director] was great.”

In the new film, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of Hela.

First he must survive a deadly gladatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk. “Thor: Ragnarok” opens in cinema on November 3rd.
