The Marvel studio announced the ensemble cast for the upcoming superhero movie- Thor Ragnarok which has raised eyebrows across the board – it includes big names such as two-time Oscar award winner Cate Blanchett (Queen Elizabeth, Blue Jasmine, Carol etc) as the powerful new villain Hela (leader of Doomeo i.e Asgardian Hell); Jeff Goldblum (Independence Day, Jurassic Park) as the eccentric grandmaster who is an elder of the universe, he is sometimes called as “Inter-galactic Cosmic Pleasure-seeker”, moreover, he possessed the mind-gem until Thanos took it away from him; Tessa Thomson (Creed, Selma) as the classic hero Valkyrie who may play Thor’s love interest; Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, Star Trek trilogy) as Skurge who is a powerful warrior and Mark Ruffalo (Avengers, Foxcatcher, Spotlight) as Bruce Banner/ Hulk.
The movie is inspired by Jack Kirby’s Ragnarok comic wherein Asgard is burned to the ground and rebuilt from the ashes. Thor will confront an empowered Loki who is now ruling Asgard under the mask of Odin (who is probably dead, so is probably in Doomeo), he has gained absolute control of Asgard while Thor was busy fighting Ultron on Earth and forces of Hela who command legions of dead. He must defeat them to pave the way for the rebirth of Asgardian society. He will have to make himself worthy of Odin’s powers. Odin force is the grand cosmic power made up of the life-force of Odin’s brothers.
The studio has decided to add two more villains – Surtur (a giant fiery monster who can do trans-dimensional teleportation, magic, and molecular manipulation) and Fenris Wolf (son of Loki foretold to kill God Odin). Surtur is a classic demonic figure of Thor comics who rules Fire realm, while Fenris is a giant wolf with human level intelligence.
