Variety has revealed that the spectacular Cate Blanchett is in talks to join Marvel’s THOR: RAGNAROK! We have some thoughts on this and guesses as to who she may be playing within…

For starters, this is wonderful news. Look at some of the amazing actors we’ve had in the Marvel movies thus far: Jeff Bridges, Anthony Hopkins, Renee Russo, Robert Redford, Glenn Close, Michael Douglas, and Tilda Swinton. Now we have Cate Blanchett lending her undeniable abilities to the third THOR installment and that can only be a good thing.

But who is she playing?

Here are some guesses:


-Thor’s Sister

-Thor’s Aunt

-Thor’s Niece

-Thor’s Cousin

-Loki’s Girlfriend

-Loki’s Girlfriend’s Aunt

-Loki’s Girlfriend’s Niece

-Loki’s Girlfriends’ Cousin




-Captain Marvel


-The voice of Thor’s hammer

-One of the infinity stones

-A strong, complicated, female character

-Random throwaway love interest that is a waste of Blanchett’s time

-Someone exciting

-Someone wonderful

I imagine that the last two have to be accurate for them to be able to get her to sign on to the film.
