Cate Blanchett Considers THOR: RAGNAROK Role A “Gift” As Chris Hemsworth Boasts Shooting In Australia

Make the jump to hear the latest from Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett as the talk enthusiastically about gearing up for filming of the Marvel threequel.

In about three months from now, principal photography for Thor: Ragnarok is expected to be in full swing in and around Queensland, Australia. While we’re still waiting for Marvel to officially announce the director, let alone which actors will make up the principal cast and also what the 2017 threequel will be about, stars Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett have respectively discussed what they’re looking forward to the most, in terms of preparation. 

“When I was here [in Australia] years ago while doing some press, and talking to people, they were [asking] ‘when will you bring a film back here,’” Chris Hemsworth told GQ when asked how he got Marvel to bring the Ragnarok production to his homeland. “When [Marvel was] talking about where [the movie] was going to be shot, I said, ‘Why can’t it be Australia?’” He continued, “[We] just kept pushing, and that became a bigger conversation. And you know, it landed here, and I couldn’t be happier. A lot of my friends are going to be on that production; people I’ve worked with and known for years.”

“The role in [Thor Ragnarok] came completely out of the blue,” said Cate Blanchett during a recent SK-II video interview (below). “And it’s a gift because the thing that I said to myself this year is that I’m gonna get fit.” During a separate interview, the Aussie actress reiterated wanting to get fit, and also expressed excitement to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “I’m super, super excited about it,” she said of Ragnarok. “I’ve only done action a couple of times, so it feels like… a departure is too strong a word, but it certainly seems like a change for me. So, I am looking forward to getting really fit, and wearing lycra, and hoping to earn a bit of street cred from my kids. I can’t wait.” What do you think?
