Two box-office heavyweights have joined the cast of Marvel’s second big movie of 2017, Thor: Ragnarok. Marvel have confirmed that Jeff Goldblum and Karl Urban will have roles in the movie, the former as Grandmaster, and Urban as Skurge.

They join the already cast Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo and Tessa Thompson in the third film in the Thor series, which starts shooting later this year.

“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible.”

Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi will direct the film, which has a release date set for 27th October, 2017.

Here’s the official release:

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.
