Cate Blanchett is said to be in talks for a “bad ass” character in Thor: Ragnarok, and now she might be confirmed for the movie as Mark Ruffalo may have let it slip she’s playing a villain in the movie.
ETOnline caught up with Mark Ruffalo at the BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party on Saturday and asked him about Blanchett.
“Cate Blanchett is supposed to be at the BAFTA event day, your Thor 3 co-star, I believe,” ET asked. “What can you tell us about the movie. Are you excited to work with her?”
“I’m so thrilled. I saw her at the Governors’ banquet here and heard that maybe she was circling, they were talking to her about the part, so I ran up to her and I was like, ‘Please, please, please make this work!'” Ruffalo replied. “She’s just one of the best, and to have her play a baddie is going to be really exciting.”
Cate Blanchett also previously joked with Jimmy Kimmel she was playing a female Thor.
“Yes. Chris Hemsworth is busy, so I’ve bee working out,” Blanchett replied to being asked if she is in Thor 3.
Kimmel then questioned if that is a confirmation, to which Blanchett said, “They are just subsituting one Australian for another. Gender equality. Why can’t you have a female Thor?”
“Thor: Ragnarok” has a November 3, 2017 release directed by Taika Waititi starring Chris Hemsworth.
