If director Taika Waititi was a breakfast food, actor Cate Blanchett would eat him every morning. At least, that’s the surprising revelation she’s made concerning her time spent with the filmmaker on the set of Marvel’s upcoming Phase 3 adventure Thor: Ragnarok. In a recent interview, the Oscar-winner had nothing but praise for her Marvel team, while sharing a bit of behind-the-scenes intel.
As you probably know, Cate Blanchett has joined the Marvel movie universe, playing the villainous Hela in Thor 3 opposite Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder and Mark Ruffalo as the green goliath otherwise commonly referred to as The Hulk. Ragnarok is in its final weeks of filming. And it’s possible that Blanchett has already wrapped her role, though she has not confirmed that.
In a recent interview with Mark Ruffalo, the actor described his co-star as ‘the worst of the worst’ in terms of what she is bringing to the character of Hela (don’t worry, he meant it as a compliment). Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Cate Blanchett reveals that she did not actually work much with Mark Ruffalo, who wrapped the movie early playing Hulk mostly as a motion capture character. About the worst of the worst comment, she questions his compliment.
