Thor: Ragnarok is going to epic. That is not an assumption, it is a promise. With that being said, we are a few weeks away from finally getting to Taika Wapiti’s revolutionary vision for the God of Thunder’s franchise. The beauty of this film is in the details, and the new universal appearance of Marvel’s cosmic universe. Cate Blanchett took a minute to talk about Hela’s journey in the film, and how it will define her appearance and character as the film progresses. We also got a new promo for Thor: Ragnarok.
First thing’s first, lets look at the promo:

In a short interview with ScreenRant, Blanchett says that she assisted in Hela’s appearance in the film, and took a minute to talk about her divine genitalia:
I have a vagina [Laughs]. So I don’t think [Loki] has the vagina– although I don’t know if Hela has a vagina either. She’s a goddess– I don’t know, I don’t know [Laughs]. No… the original sketches that I got, Tom and I were just talking about that actually, they were quite similar. So Taika and I, and the producers, and Mayes [Rubio] who’s the costume designer – and has done an amazing job, when you eventually see the costume because obviously I was in the ‘pajamas of humiliation’ today…. Hela looked very similar to Loki, and I said ‘OK, well how can we either make that a virtue, or be a little bit more creative with that?’
And they were really receptive to it. So even though Hela doesn’t carry the whole film – and that’s not a spoiler – I’ve tried with the Makeup and Hair people and all of the different departments to give her a kind of visual journey, so that she’s got somewhere to go as she becomes increasingly powerful. That look evolves and calcifies a little bit.
