The Thor franchise just got, somehow, even much better—Cate Blanchett has now joined the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab). We don't yet know what part she'll play (villain? Asgardian? Normal human?), but it's said to be a "badass female." Yasssss, kween.

The third installment, Thor: Ragnarok, will feature Chris Hemsworth as Thor (duh) but will also reportedly feature an appearance by the Hulk. So that's...different.

Here's hoping for a ton of Blanchett screen time, and a whole lot of Chris Hemsworth abs.
