The Academy Award-winning actress admits that while she loves all the films in the MCU, she hopes Ragnarok director Taika Waititi won't be offended to hear her favorite Marvel Studios release is actually Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's Captain Marvel, which hit theaters earlier this year.
"I absolutely love seeing them all with my kids," Blanchett said of Marvel's films in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "But I really, really loved Captain Marvel. No offense, Taika, but it was probably my favorite."
It's no surprise that Captain Marvel -- the MCU's' first female-led solo film -- is Blanchett's favorite. The actress spoke highly of Marvel Studios producer Victoria Alonso and her contributions to the franchise's inclusiveness. "She has been an incredible advocate for feminizing that universe. It's right and true that those franchises should be actually cutting-edge, because that's traditionally what [comics] have done," Blanchett voices.
While there are currently no known plans for Blanchett to return to the MCU -- seeing as how Hela is presumed deceased at the moment -- fans of the franchise know that death isn't always the end for these characters (especially not for the Goddess of Death.) If given the call, Blanchett is certainly eager to take the role up once more; however, whether or not Hela will appear again, Blanchett delegates, "That's probably a Marvel question."
Nevertheless, the Thor series will continue with Thor: Love and Thunder, which is scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 5, 2021. Directed by Taika Waititi, the film stars Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth.
