This summer, Marvel will enter production on the third installment of the Thor franchise. Thor: Ragnarok will be directed by newcomer Taika Waititi with Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, and Mark Ruffalo all confirmed to appear.
While we do not know too much about the overall plot of the movie, the cast has started to round out and with that, hints of what could unfold have begun to come out. One actress that could appear alongside the cast and bring a new dynamic to the franchise is Cate Blanchett, who was recently revealed to be in talks for an unspecified role.
The possibility of joining the MCU and appearing alongside Thor was brought up to Blanchett recently while talking to USA Today. She did not say much, but says she would love to be in it and throw some punches.
I would love that. I’d love to get fit and punch people.
Hopefully this casting will pan out and we can get Blanchett in the MCU in any type of role.
Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled to hit theaters November 3, 2017.
