Thor: Ragnarok’s Hela may simply be one of the best villain within the Marvel Cindematic Unverse, however the unique script known as for her to tackle one other villain through the movie.
Warning, spoilers incoming for Thor: Ragnarok, so if you have not seen the film but you have been warned.
One of essentially the most trendy sequences within the film is Hela’s arrival in Asgard, the place she obliterates the the Asgardian troopers in a flurry of swords and daggers. As Pearson revealed to Yahoo although, an earlier model featured her taking over the immensely highly effective Destroyer.
“I always want the villain to be really … not-Disney,” Pearson said. “I want to give them moments where they’re really mbadacring or crushing people, and she has that great entrance where she takes everybody out. [Originally it was extended,] and they were like, ‘This is a bit repetitive, and we don’t have the days to shoot it.’ There was [also] a scene where she thought they were hiding the sword in the armory, this big fortress. She goes up, and the destroyer armor comes out to take her out, and she just rips that thing apart too, just to call back the destroyer armor. And it just felt like an extra beat that we didn’t need. We needed to get Thor pushing back to Asgard as fast as possible.””
Granted, Cate Blanchett made a formidable even earlier than she began taking aside the forces of Asguard, and Pearson fought for that as effectively.
“When they told me Cate Blanchett [was cast], I was like, ‘Guys, don’t you want to see her give a speech? Don’t you want the best in the world to come in as cool as she is and just tell everyone what she’s going to do?’” Pearson stated. “And they’re like, ‘Yeah, you’re probably right.’ And so I got to write a speech for her. And then Taika of course comes in with the brilliant way to take the piss out of it at the end.”
It appears the best alternative was made in each circumstances, regardless of how cool that Hela vs Destroyer battle may’ve appeared on display.
