The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to rack up copious wins. Today (May 20), Marvel confirmed that Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum and Karl Urban have been added to the cast of Thor: Ragnorak.

Also along for the ride for the third proper Thor film will be Mark Ruffalo reprising his role as Bruce Banner aka the Incredible Hulk. Both Thor and the Hulk were absent from Captain America: Civil War.

Blanchett will play a villain called Hela, Goldblum is holding it down as the Grandmaster and Karl Urban is slated to play Skurge. Also, Tessa Thompson (Creed) will be portraying Valkyrie.

The cast of Thor: Ragnorak was already impressive thanks to the old guard; Chris Hemsworth is Thor (for the fifth time on film), Sir Anthony Hopkins is returning as Odin, Idris Elba is again Heimdall and Tom Hiddleston is Loki.

We still need the Black Panther movie moved up in the schedule, though. Just saying.

Thor: Ragnorak is due in theaters November 3, 2017.
