After months of rumors and speculation, the official cast for Thor: Ragnarok has been revealed.
Marvel has confirmed that the cast will include Cate Blanchett as “the mysterious and powerful new villain” Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Skurge, and Tessa Thompson as the Valkyrie.
The cast will also of course feature Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. Mark Ruffalo will also be getting in on the action as the Hulk. Natalie Portman will be sitting this one out, however.
“The 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,” said producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible.”
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3, 2017.
