Cate Blanchett, action hero.
These are not words that one would think would ever be said aloud but now are a reality thanks to Thor: Ragnarok.
In the latest Chinese trailer for the Marvel film, the Oscar-winner, playing Goddess of Death Hela, is shown in some major fight sequences with both Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson).
“I worked with the legend Zoe Bell,” Blanchett told EW last March. “I did as much as was humanly possible for a middle-aged mother of four [Laughs]. I learned so much. All sorts of capoeira stuff. All the stunts and the fights were really interestingly choreographed. But I did train, ostensibly, so I wouldn’t injure my self.”
We also get to see her spooky headdress do some weird morphing. Even her accessories are bad ass! “She’s able to manifest weapons,” explained Blanchett. “Her headdress can be weapons. “She can manifest weapons out of different parts of her body. I won’t tell you which — I’ll leave that hanging for a moment.”
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on Nov. 3.
