Thor 3: New Hela Trailer Showcases Marvel's First Female Villain

Thor 3: New Hela Trailer Showcases Marvel's First Female Villain”

Yikes. For more background on Hela, watch the featurette above, which also features thoughts from Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi. Hela is the Goddess of Death, and after escaping from her prison, she moves to take over Asgard and destroy anyone who gets in her way. And more than that, she subverts the idea of what it means to be an antagonist, offering something fresh and fierce to the forthcoming Thor flick.

Blanchett joins a cast that includes Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum and Anthony Hopkins.

Actress Cate Blanchett is set to portray the Hela, complete with the gnarly headdress and all, in Thor: Ragnarok.

"Some of the happiest times have been beating people up", Blanchett admits.

While the new "HelaWeen" content doesn't exclusively focus on Hela, she's definitely front and center in a new video, including never-before-seen footage and dialogue of the character from the upcoming film. "I can just throw axes into someone's gut!".

And I'm really into it, everyone.

Blanchett's Hela is darkly condescending in basically every line in this featurette, telling the men around her, "Kneel...for your queen", "You look like a smart boy", or "You're in my seat".

For Blanchett's part, her favorite villains (and the ones she feels are the best) are ones that "you love and hate what they do but you sort of understand it". But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger- the Incredible Hulk! Finally, as teased at the end of his solo film, Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange will team with the God of Thunder to deal with Loki.

Thor: Ragnarok will rock into theaters on November 3.
