Marvel announced the cast for the sequel, which stars Chris Hemsworth as the titular god. The studio also confirmed the addition of Cate Blanchett, who's been rumored for months to play the main villain, Hela. This makes her the first major female villain in a Marvel movie, a subject on which Stephen Colbert recently blasted the studio.
Goldblum — who's next seen in "Independence Day: Resurgence" — plays the Grand Master, an Elder of the Universe with millennia of knowledge. Karl Urban also jumps on board as Skurge, an Askgardian villain, while Tessa Thompson steps into the role of Valkyrie, an Askgardian hero.
Marvel also confirmed the inclusion of Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and the return of cast members Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
