Set to appear in Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” learn more about the Goddess of Death with these seminal stories!

Daughter of Loki and Angrboda, Hela ruled the dominion of Hel and all those who lived there, giving her control over any Asgardian who died (with the exception of heroes). Not satisfied with the limits of her domain, Hela uses her strength and mystical powers to expand her empire and claim more victims to rule! Get up close and personal with Hela by checking out these integral issues for the Asgardian abomination.

Stay tuned to Marvel.com for all the latest news and updates on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Journey Into Mystery #102

With Thor seeking to prove his might, the Asgardian learns that his ally Sif has been sacrificed to Hela by King Rugga in exchange for immortality. Thor offers to trade places with Sif, a gesture that moves Hela so much that she instead decides to let both Asgardians flee her domain.

Thor #150

When a building collapes on the now powerless Thor, Hela visits the Asgardian to collect another denizen for her dominion of the dead. Knowing that the Wrecker still roams free, Thor refuses to give in to the Goddess of Death until he topples the threat.

Thor #189

Once again, Hela aims to add Thor to her land of the dead so he reverts to his mortal form of Donald Blake, an identity Hela doesn’t know of. Scouring Earth for Thor, Hela decides to draw him out of hiding by slowing aging a group of firefighters. This gambit works and Thor must decide whether he spares or sacrifices the firefighters to the Goddess of Death!

Thor #251

With his father Odin’s whereabouts unkown, Thor sets his sights on exploring the dimension of the dead. When the God of Thunder crosses paths with Hela, she allows him to continue his quest for his father, rejecting the opportunity to claim Thor by saying that she’d prefer to claim him on her terms and not by chance.

Thor #354

Sensing that Odin’s soul has left Asgard, Hela arrives to carry that soul to Hel! Thor stands in Hela’s way, the God of Thunder clarifies he has merely left Asgard, but has not died. Using all of his rage and fury, Thor fends off Hela and sends her back to Hel without Odin’s soul to bring with her.

X-Men Annual #9

Up to his mischievious ways, Loki convinces Storm to become his ally with an Asgardian hammer! She turns her full might on Wolverine, who still manages to survive. When Hela comes to collect the nearly dead mutant, the Goddess of Death learns the power of the X-Men and vows to collect his soul another day.

Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, & Mark Ruffalo join the illustrious cast!

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.

“Thor: Ragnarok,” the third installment of Marvel’s popular Norse Super Hero, is directed by Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (“Two Cars, One Night,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”).  Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee.

Marvel to film 'Thor: Ragnarok' in Queensland!

Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” the third instalment of the Marvel Studios’ franchise starring Australia’s Chris Hemsworth as the hammer-wielding comic book Super Hero, has today been confirmed to start pre-production in Queensland in January 2016 with filming to begin in June 2016.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk met with Marvel executives in June in Los Angeles and, through Screen Queensland, worked tirelessly to ensure Queensland was the production destination of choice.

“This is a huge win for Queensland and I am thrilled that Thor will be filming exclusively in our state,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“As our economy diversifies, Queensland is demonstrating its strength as a lead destination for filmmakers both internationally and locally, and my government is doing what it can to ensure that Queensland remains a global hub for the screen sector.

“The production will spend more than $100 million AUD in Queensland and will employ over 750 Queensland crew.”

“Queensland offers an amazing and diverse backdrop for ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ and we are very excited to bring this film to such an incredible locale. Marvel Studios would like to thank the Queensland Government for helping to make this a reality,” said Louis D’Esposito, Co-President of Marvel Studios.

The studio will film at many locations throughout Queensland including scenes at Village Roadshow Studios at the Gold Coast.

The first two films in the Thor series–“Thor,” released in 2011, and “Thor: The Dark World,” released in 2013–earned more than $1 billion USD at the global box office.

Disney has slated a November 3, 2017 U.S. release date for “Thor: Ragnarok.”
