As Thor: Ragnarok nears closer to the start of production, many new characters have been announced to make their debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This week’s profile highlights the ominous new villain of the film, Hela, played by Cate Blanchett.

Just like Universal Studios is serious about their upcoming Monster series with their star-studded additions, the same can be said about Marvel Studio’s development of “Thor: Ragnarok,” which concludes a Thor trilogy in which the first and second films have been argued by critics and fans alike as disappointments. But Marvel has made a lot of decisions on this upcoming feature that point it in the right direction and the one choice we’ll be analyzing today is their decision to cast Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett as the film’s main villain, Hela. Find out who Hela is and why we think Cate Blanchett is a good choice in this week’s Profile.
