Thor: Ragnarok star Cate Blanchett is returning to the role of Hela for Marvel’s What If…? season two.

Taika Waititi’s Marvel Studios feature Thor: Ragnarok introduced audiences to Cate Blanchett as Hela, the villainous half-sister of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki. While Hela met her end at the hands of Surtur during the third act of Ragnarok, Cate Blanchett is reprising the role for the first time in years, all thanks to the What If…? series on Disney Plus.

Cate Blanchett’s Hela is back

The second season of Marvel’s animated Disney Plus series What If…? features the return of Cate Blanchett’s Hela. What If…? director Bryan Andrews broke the news during Marvel’s “Journey Into Imagination” panel at the 2022 LightBox Expo, as reported by Laughing Place.

What If…? also features the voices of Josh Brolin, Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Jeffrey Wright, Hayley Atwell and other major stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series “flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways,” according to Marvel’s official description of the series.

In addition to the second season of What If…?, Marvel is also working on two more animated series — Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year. The former is a direct spin-off of What If…? episode five, which revolves around a Marvel Cinematic Universe that suffers from a zombie plague.

All episodes of the first season of What If…? are now available to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
