Cate Blanchett is going full supervillain as Hela in new artwork from Thor: Ragnarok.
Marvel Studios concept artist Andy Park revealed his wraparound cover for The Art of Thor: Ragnarok, which is now available for pre-order. In addition to featuring new renderings of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Gladiator Hulk, and Loki, the centerpiece of the image is a shot of Hela with her full headpiece.
Take a look at the cover below:
Hela's design, specifically her headdress, is easily recognizable as the work of Jack Kirby, the "King of Comics" who co-created the Marvel Universe, including Thor and Hela. Monday would have been Kirby's 100th birthday, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige made it clear that Ragnarok is a "love letter" to Kirby's vision. Director Taka Waititi has also been open about Kirby's influence on the movie.
Based on the trailers for Thor: Ragnarok, we know that Hela will destroy Asgard and banish Thor to a planet where he's forced to fight without his hammer in an arena. Luckily, he finds a friend from work on the same planet.
