Former co-star Hemsworth is “still angry” about Blanchett’s Hela destroying Mjolnir.
Cate Blanchett is returning to her Marvel roots.
In addition to the “TÁR” Best Actress nominee, she posed with cosplay Disneyland characters Loki and Thor. Blanchett previously starred in 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok” as the duo’s half-sister Hela.
Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, shared a laugh-cry face emoji on Twitter: “What a nice reunion…but still mad at Mjolnir.” During “Ragnarok,” Blanchett’s character Hela destroyed Thor’s signature hammer, Mjolnir. The weapon made a brief return in “Avengers: Endgame” as part of a multiverse moment.
Blanchett talked about being considered Marvel’s first female villain when the film was released. Collision that he felt no “pressure” in the role.
“You only feel pressure if you think this is the only opportunity women get, which is ridiculous,” the Oscar winner said. “I mean, there’s a huge female fan base, and if I have a daughter, you want them to be able to identify with (the villains) as well as the heroes… I was really excited because like any movie, it’s action. movie or a little indie drama, it depends on who’s looking down the lens and when Taika (Waititi) — that was a really exciting thing for me.”
Waititi previously told IndieWire’s Eric Kohn that Blanchett signed on for the role for her children.
“He really wanted to do something that his kids would think was cool,” the writer-director said. “I would do something for that too.”
Hemsworth, aka Thor himself, revealed that after four standalone films and more than 10 years as the God of Thunder, he may be bowing out of the role.
“I feel like we should probably close the book if I did it again, you know what I mean?” I feel like that probably warrants it,” Hemsworth told Vanity Fair. “I feel like that’s probably going to be the finale, but it’s not based on what anyone’s told me or any plans.”
He added: “There’s a hero’s birth, a hero’s journey, and then a hero’s death, and I don’t know — am I at that stage? Who knows?”
Hemsworth noted that he’s “totally open” to another “Thor” movie if “there’s something unique and fresh and unexpected about the character and the world,” similar to Taika Waititi’s parts. “I have always loved this experience. I’m very grateful that I’ve been able to do something different every time,” Hemsworth said.
