Man it really feels like what we saw with Hela was just the tip of the iceberg. She oozed so much charisma and chewed up every scene. Even the exposition - I don't think anyone else could have delivered that as well as Blanchett. It just doesn't seem like we got enough of her. Maybe it's all wishful thinking but I really hope she comes back somehow.

I'm purposely avoiding the Infinity War threads but I found this link and agree with this list:

http://therealstanlee.com/the-10-mos...s-infinity-war

Happy to see Thor make the list twice.

I have no doubt that if Hela had been played by a lesser actress, she never would have become as popular as she is now. I imagine someone without Cate's charisma and incredible talent would have played the role completely straight and wouldn't have given Hela nearly as much personality and swagger. The exposition scenes where Hela explained Asgard's past reminded me of Galadriel's monologue from the beginning of Fellowship of the Ring, no one does epic exposition filled monologues like Cate Blanchett does.

Can't imagine Hela played by someone not as good. Just wouldn't have been the same. Cate really nailed it and she could just have done with a bit more time onscreen.

Hey. How goes it. I bought Ragnarok a while go but haven't watched it on bluray yet.

I miss this board. Where all my Ragnarok homies at? HD? Iceman? Mjolnir? BigThor? Oh hang on, I know where BT is.

Anyone else miss this board? I want Thor 4 to be announced so bad. Following Thor's massive spike in popularity after Ragnarok and IW, he deserves it.

Incidentally, Peter Jackson supposedly wanted Lucy Lawless for Galadriel but she was pregnant at the time!

Thank the Valar that she was. I have nothing against Lucy Lawless, but Galadriel is one of my favourite literary characters of all time and she's just all wrong for that part. LotR was where I became a huge fan of Cate (who is Galadriel), sometimes things just work out for the best.

I completely agree! I love Lucy Lawless but things definitely worked out for the best!
