Cate Blanchett in talks to join Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
She’s played a queen and an elf (who was also a queen...), and now she’s joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The news comes just after Blanchett picked up SAG and Golden Globe nominations this week for her performance in “Carol.”
No word on which character the ever-stunning two-time Oscar winner would play in the sequel, set for a November 3, 2017 release. The Variety report says she’ll play “one of the new female leads” in the film — new to the MCU, we assume, and not a totally new, original character.
Will she play the Enchantress? Or Valkyrie? Or will she stoop to play a human?
