"We were once the seat of absolute power in the cosmos. Our supremacy was unchallenged. Yet Odin stopped at nine realms. Our destiny is to rule over all others. And I am here to restore that power. Kneel before me and rise into the ranks of my great conquest!"―Hela to the Einherjar.  Thor movies are beleaguered with family problems, but Thor: Ragnarok adds another crazy, revenge-seeking family member to the mix.

For a very long time, she was believed to be the daughter of Loki and the sorceress Angrboda from a previous life cycle.

Framestore makes performance motion for armies and population in Thor: Ragnarok

Technology
In Marvel Studios’ latest blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok, an electrified God of thunder fights off an army of undead soldiers high above the waters on a narrow Rainbow Bridge as the citizens of Asgard watch out in fear. The scene is a highlight of the movie but also a complicated one, as the script called for dozens of characters to be on-screen at once. Knowing that hiring enough extras and stunt people would be costly, Marvel turned to Oscar-winning VFX studio Framestore which managed to produce performance motion for armies and populations in a matter of days, using only a handful of cameras and Vicon’s Shōgun software. Having recently helped Marvel Studios bring characters like Rocket and Baby Groot to screen for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Framestore’s assignment on Thor: Rag

Marvel and Funko join hands again for a CG short

Animation
Marvel and Funko have got together for the third season of their hit CG short titled Tick Tick Smash while they have just released the third one. The short features Funko Pop versions of the Hulk and Black Widow teaming up in order to escape a secret Hydra Bunker laden with traps. The hilarious short emphasizes the distinct difference between the Hulk and Black Widow’s respective approach to superheroics with the latter being primarily all about grace and stealth, The former lacked both but made up for it through sheer indestructibility. The gist is that while the Hulk isn’t exactly the guy one would bring to a stealth mission, his indestructible body means that he doesn’t need to be stealthy anyway as he’ll just steamroll everything in his path.
