With everyone still reeling from Captain America: Civil War, and with all eyes looking towards the upcoming Doctor Strange with great anticipation, Thor: Ragnarok has fallen off of most people’s immediate radar regarding its development and casting. Not anymore as it has been confirmed that Jeff Goldblum is now a part of this film, thereby guaranteeing his place in the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to io9. Goldblum will be playing the Grandmaster, an incredibly powerful cosmic character who gets his kicks by forcing people to fight against each other.
Others who have been confirmed are Cate Blanchett who will play the film’s primary villain: Hela, the Asgardian Goddess of Death, seen in concept art from the movie above. Mark Ruffalo will naturally reprise his role as the Hulk and Bruce Banner, while the cast is rounded out by Tessa Thompson, confirmed to play Asgardian superhero Valkyrie, and Karl Urban, who will play Skurge, a villainous Asgardian with an enchanted axe that was a long time rival of Thor. The new cast joins the returning Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, and Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Thor: Ragnarok is due to hit theaters on July 28, 2017.
How does this casting sound to you? Is there a fear that Thor: Ragnarok might become too “bloated” with this cast, or are you trusting Marvel because of the movies they have released so far?
