The next accommodates spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok in addition to, doubtlessly, future MCU motion pictures.
Thor: Ragnarok is the final Marvel film to characteristic an Avenger previous to Avengers: Infinity War subsequent yr. As such, it units the desk for the large crossover occasion, however with all of the characters that might be showing, the destiny of no less than one is in query. The finale of Ragnarok sees Hela get fairly nicely smashed by the huge raging Surtur within the last moments earlier than Asgard’s full destruction. It might appear that Hela has been destroyed, however this can be a comedian e-book film in any case, so the reality is at all times up within the air. That’s except you ask Ragnarok co-writer Eric Pearson, who advised our personal Eric Eisenberg that he has a (largely) definitive reply to the query. Hela is lifeless. In accordance with Pearson…
I am simply going to say no. She might need survived in one of many earlier drafts, however we needed to make it fairly clear that she was going to be an limitless risk and it wanted to be taken care of now. I will even say, nonetheless, that this can be a massive Marvel comedian e-book film and I am going to do the outdated Sport of Thrones factor — — till you see the our bodies… Generally even when you see the our bodies! So something’s potential – however we needed to make her so highly effective and so decided that she wanted to be dealt with with finality on this film, or else the folks of Asgard can be at risk till she was.
Surprisingly, whereas we’d count on a solution that hedges issues a bit, Eric Pearson is definitive that so far as he is involved, Hela is lifeless. The purpose of the story was to make her a villain so highly effective that solely her full destruction, led to by the destruction of Asgard itself, would really cease her. That occurs, so it follows that she perished with the planet.
Pearson does go away open the chance that the character could possibly be introduced again, as we by no means see a physique, however the distinction right here is that, whereas that would occur, if it does, will probably be for some as but unconceived of objective. So far as the script of Thor: Ragnarok is anxious, Hela is lifeless.
One factor this in all probability does is totally kill the speculation that Hela might be taking a key place in Avengers: Infinity Conflict. Some theorized that Hela would play the position within the movie that was held by the personification of Death within the comedian e-book model of the story. If Hela was showing in both Avengers movie, which have now each gone earlier than cameras, it is unlikely the reply would have been so clearly no.
So whereas it is potential that we may nonetheless see Hela once more someday, we in all probability should not count on it anytime quickly.
