With filming about to begin for Thor: Ragnarok Marvel just announced some huge casting news. Joining Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Mark Ruffalo among the usual Asgardians will be none other than Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, Karl Urban Jeff Goldblum and Tessa Thompson.
Cate Blanchett will play the Asgardian Goddess of Death, Hela. Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as the heroine Valkyrie and Karl Urban as Skurge (aka the Executioner).
They also release a piece of concept art. I can only assume this is Hela standing in front of an army.
