Mark Ruffalo in awe of Cate Blanchett and Tessa Thompson

The actor talks about the two women who play important characters--Hela and Valkyrie--in Thor:Ragnorak

Published: 11th September 2017

Mark Ruffalo says it is great to have strong, beautiful and intelligent women like Cate Blanchett and Tessa Thompson in Thor: Ragnarok. Ruffalo will reprise the role of Hulk in the third part of Thor, which also stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor. 

"It is great that we have Blanchett and Thompson, these two amazing, powerful, strong, beautiful, intelligent women, playing these two important, integral characters in this movie," he says.

About Cate Blanchett's character, Ruffalo says, "We have Hela, played by Blanchett. She has all the power, all the strength, all the talent of any of the other gods, with all the rage. She's angry, and she wants to come back, and take what she feels is rightfully hers. Except that she's been pushed so far into the darkness that she's become dark. She's now the manifestation of death." 

On Valkyrie played by Thompson, he adds, "She is another female presence who didn't feel welcome. She's a powerhouse and a brilliant fighter. She's as powerful as Thor. She's a warrior. Valkyrie is one of the people who ended up banishing Hela from Asgard. But she's also lost faith in the patriarchy and the elite power structure."  

Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and also stars Idris Elba, Tom Hiddelston, Anthony Hopkins, and Jeff Goldblum among others. The movie will release in India on November 3.
