Thor: Ragnarok cast

Marvel Studios has officially announced the cast for Thor: Ragnarok and it’s easily one of the most impressive ensembles ever accumulated for a superhero film. The line-up includes two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett as Hela, the MCU’s first female supervillain, and she’s joined by Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban.

Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day) will play Grandmaster, Thompson (Creed, Selma) has been cast as the classic hero Valkyrie and Urban (Dredd, Star Trek) has signed on to play iconic Asgardian warrior villain Skurge.

Mark Ruffalo is officially confirmed to return as Bruce Banner/The Hulk and he’s joined by Chris Hemsworth, the titular superhero. Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston and Sir Anthony Hopkins round-off the excellent line-up.
