Reaction on Twitter has been seen pretty unexpected– as Thor villain Hela was originally a cameo that was never meant to be.
During the first Thor film, Hela – played by a comically unimpressed Cate Blanchett – was originally going to show up in the second act, as Hela thought Thor and Loki would kill each other.

Though, Hela’s cameo role was deleted from the film before filming began – because Blanchett thought it “doubled down on a misconception” about who she was.
According to HeyUGuys, Thor writer Zack Stentz has taken to twitter to announce a very curious cameo that almost occurred in the 2011 film, starring for the first time Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder.
Originally, Stentz intended to introduce Hela as part of a prank during Thor’s coronation – a while before she would feature as Thor’s main antagonist: Ragnarok played by Cate Blanchett.
He went on to explain that co-writing Ashley Miller made him take this cameo out as it might have changed a lot about the subsequent Thor films, specifically Ragnarok.
How much is Thor important for MCU?
Thor Ragnarok was the only Marvel movie to top a box office for its opening weekend. The only other Marvel movie that managed to do this was Guardians of the Galaxy 2 back in 2014.
This was thanks to Thor Ragnarok carrying the Marvel flag and ultimately ‘saving’ the rest of the MCU’s films from being ‘soft’ (meaning flops).
Thor Ragnarok’s $107 million openings were a disappointment, however, as both Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Black Panther earned $128 million and $108 million respectively. Still, the Thor movies have done enough to prove the worth.
The original conclusion of the first Thor movie was going to feature the villain Loki becoming Ragnarok. This idea was taken out because Marvel Studios was worried it would confuse the audience with Norse myth-making appearances in Marvel movies and not have it make any sense Hemsworth confirmed the cameo saying that “I’m glad we didn’t do it earlier because it’s just made it a thousand times better!
