Filming is well underway for next year’s Thor: Ragnarok, and thanks to cast members Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson, we’ve gotten several looks at the shenanigans taking place behind the scenes. Despite all of their efforts, though, the actors never managed to give us a look at Cate Blanchett’s character, Hela. Lucky for us, however, these set photos from Brisbane give us what we believe to be our first glimpse of the character.
As you can see, the pictures are not the greatest quality, so we can’t be 100 percent sure that the person we see is Hela, but judging by her hair and clothing, I’d venture to say that we are probably looking at the Asgardian ruler of Hel.
Interestingly enough, you can also see a character wielding some kind of sword, and in the next shot, a crew member holding up a large battle axe. Could this be an indicator of Skurge being present as well? We’ll have to wait and see.
Thor: Ragnarok will be released on November 3, 2017, and boasts an all-star cast of Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk) Jeff Goldblum (The Grandmaster), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Karl Urban (Skurge), and Idris Elba (Heimdall).
