Today, Marvel confirmed some of the names that will be joining the cast of the third Thor film titled Ragnarok. The cast will include Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett as the mysterious and powerful villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Karl Urban as Skurge. Additionally, as expected, Mark Ruffalo will be joining the film to reprise his role as Bruce Banner AKA Hulk.
“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.”
Thor: Ragnarok is expected to hit theatres July 28th, 2017.
