Marvel has announced today the new cast members of upcoming “Thor: Ragnarok“.
Two-time Oscar®-winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Carol, “Cinderella”) joins Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum (the upcoming “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Jurassic Park”) who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (“Creed,” “Selma”) who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban (“Star Trek” trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”) who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Rounding out the cast for the film is three-time Oscar®-nominee Mark Ruffalo (“Spotlight,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Foxcatcher”), reprising his role of Bruce Banner/the Hulk from “Marvel’s The Avengers” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
Thor’s new cast members join returning stars Chris Hemsworth (“Rush,” “In the Heart of the Sea,” “Ghostbusters”) in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston (“Crimson Peak,” “The Night Manager,” “Kong: Skull Island”) as Thor’s adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Golden Globe® and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Idris Elba (“The Dark Tower,” “Luther,” “Beasts of No Nation”) as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Academy Award®-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins (“Silence of the Lambs,” “Nixon,” “Hitchcock”) again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard.
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi. The film is slated to start production this summer and Disney will release it on Nov. 3, 2017.
Mark attended today in New York the Louis Vuitton America’a Cup World Series on Race Day 1. I have a few pictures added in our gallery of him sailing aboard Land Rover BAR. Also, he attended this past Wednesday (04) the Anita Ko Spring Collection Launch, so you also will be able to find pictures in our gallery.
Mark has posted this morning on his Instagram a picture to announce he’s doing a new film, titled Anything, with Matt Bomer and John Carroll Lynch. It was a very nice surprise to know him and Matt are going to work together again, but he didn’t deliver a single line about what is this project about, at least.
Some friends did some digging on internet and apparently, this film is adapted from a stage play also titled Anything, staged on Lillian Theatre back in 2007. Written and starred by Tim McNeil, Anything is a wryly humorous and profoundly moving story of the unlikely romance that blossoms between a reclusive grief-stricken widower from small-town Mississippi, and his charismatic transvestite neighbor on the brink of her own destruction.
Back in 2014 whilst promoting Foxcatcher Matt talked to Deadline about his interest on the play.
I would love to come back, and I actually read a beautiful new play by Timothy McNeil that I am going to start just seeing if there’s some interest in it. It’s a really mature, very literary piece that is very powerful and I think very timely. It’s a hell of a piece of theater. And you know, in the great tradition of the theater, I refuse to be any one thing. Or any one person.
We have NO confirmation if this is or not the same project, which part Mark is playing, if he’s directing, anything. More information will be added here, and you can follow us on twitter at @ruffalocentral as well.
Our gallery was updated with pictures from latest events Mark attended in the past couple of weeks. He campaigned for Bernie Sanders in April, did a Q&A on Tribeca festival with director Joss Whedon, attended the launch of “New Yorkers for Clean Power” campaign and two days ago he attended the Love Heals 2016 gala. Enjoy the pictures!
The gallery was updated with promotional images of Mark back on his role of Dylan Rhodes in Now You See Me sequel. The film brings back Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman with Lizzy Caplan stepping in for Isla Fisher. Daniel Radcliffe also joins the cast as the new enemy, Walter Mabry, “a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet.” The film is set for a June 10 release and Chu recently announced he would return to the director’s chair for Now You See Me 3.
Mark attended a few weeks ago the ReelAbilities Film Festival in New York and I have pictures added in our gallery.
I want to apologize for the late, but also to explain that I only had access to smallish pictures of the whole events, and I didn’t want to add them. Smallish pictures you can find all over the internet, I want you to trust that here you will find only the best ones. It’s silly, but it’s what I want to offer. Enjoy them!
Our gallery was updated with several new pictures from events Mark has attended this past weeks.
Our gallery was updated with some new photos of Mark, including new pictures of the Spirit Awards portraits sent to us by my friend Claudia.
