As we get closer to Oscar Season, you could look at the list of actors in the MCU and find plenty of winners. Based on a new report from Variety, that list is gonna get a bit bigger if this proves to be true.
Variety is reporting that Cate Blanchett is in talks to join Thor: Ragnarok in a mysterious role. She is a two time Oscar winner and could win another with critics raving about her latest performance in Carol.
Although the role is unknown at the time, there have been previous reports claiming that the next Thor film will feature a female villain and possible Valkyrie. Blanchett does not fit the role of Valkyrie in my mind, so I would guess she is playing a villainous character. Enchantress would be an interesting choice, as would Hela.
What role would you want Blanchett to take on if the deal pans out? Share your thoughts in the comment section!
Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled to hit theaters November 3, 2017.
