Marvel has just announced that Goldblum and Star Trek star Karl Urban have joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, and the site confirms the addition of the previously-reported Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, and Mark Ruffalo.
Goldblum will play “the eccentric Grandmaster,” Urban “will add his might to the fray as Skurge,” Thompson “will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen,” and Blanchett is confirmed to be playing “the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela.”
Kevin Feige had this to say:
“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible.”
