Potential First Glimpse Of Cate Blanchett As HELA On The Set Of THOR: RAGNAROK
Exciting things are happening on the Ragnarok set with not only Chris Hemsworth spotted rehearsing a battle, but also what appears to be Cate Blanchett in costume as Hela sans her headpiece
It seems we won’t have to wait much longer before we see someone in full costume on the set of Thor: Ragnarok as the Marvel Studios production is scheduled to shoot some action sequences on the streets of Brisbane, which is the capital city of Queensland, Australia. Though the actual filming doesn’t start until Monday, Chris Hemsworth and/or some stunt guys have been spotted rehearsing what’s sure to be battle scenes at the new location.
However, there’s something more intriguing underway back on Queensland’s Gold Coast where that massive Asgardian set was constructed for Thor: Ragnarok. The quality is not exactly high-definition, but footage from that location might have revealed our first look at Cate Blanchett as the villainous Hela! Though she’s not wearing her headdress, she can be seen dressed in green while sitting and standing before several extras in Asgardian attire.
In addition, there appears to be someone else of significance wielding a sword in the same screenshot that features Blanchett sitting down, but it’s much too blurry to be certain. One of the crew members can also been seen holding what appears to be a massive axe, which may belong to Karl Urban’s Skurge the Executioner, if not the Queen of the dead herself..
Anyhow, check out all the Thor: Ragnarok set footage and screenshots below thanks to Nine News Gold Coast and Irena Morgenstern Skin Management on Facebook via user B1gr1g. And be sure to stay tuned for more coverage as principal photography continues.
