One of the major reasons behind the success of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Ragnarok was Cate Blanchett’s performance as Hela. Despite the comedic direction that the movie went under the leadership of Taika Waititi, Cate Blanchett’s exceptional performance solidified Hela as one of the most intimidating villains in MCU’s history.
Even though the actress appeared in only one MCU project, it was enough for Blanchett to solidify her position as one of MCU’s greatest villains. But it appears that even after all these years, Thor hasn’t forgotten about Hela breaking his Mjolnir.
