Even though Chris Hemsworth has already worked with the best of the best in Hollywood, he still felt pretty intimidated working alongside Cate Blanchett on “Thor: Ragnarok.”

Luckily for him, Blanchett turned out to be an amazing human being, and Hemsworth found himself enjoying the time he got to spend with her on set. “It was wildly intimidating but she is one of my favourite people on the planet,” Hemsworth told at the 2017 Comic-Con in San Diego. “It’s nice to meet your heroes and it be as good as you’d hoped. She’s just incredibly wonderful and generous and fun and that was one of the best experiences.”

In “Thor: Ragnarok,” Hemsworth plays the titular god of thunder, while Blanchett plays the villain Hela. They might be opponents in the film, but Hemsworth and Blanchett are pretty good buddies on set. In fact, Hemsworth said he would like to emulate Blanchett’s work ethic. “She has the same sort of attitude that I like to think I follow, which is just to kind of turn up, do the work, have fun, treat everyone with respect, get on with it,” he said.

“Ragnarok” will conclude the “Thor” movie franchise, and Marvel president Kevin Feige said it will even lead straight to the story of “Avengers: Infinity War.”

“I think that we are finding ourselves as we complete Phase 3 and finish this 22-movie narrative that it’s working out that way,” he told the Toronto Sun. “We did three ‘Iron Man’ films, three ‘Captain America’ films, three ‘Thor’ films. Things change drastically in ‘Ragnarok’ and then build directly into ‘Infinity War.’”

New character Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), who will help Thor and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) battle Hela, might even be included in “Avengers: Infinity War.” When asked earlier by Entertainment Weekly about Valkyrie’s future in Marvel, Thompson already hinted that it’s possible she will appear in more movies. “You never know where people will pop up. In the next phase, the hope is to find ways to interweave all these characters, and certainly with ‘Infinity War,’ those are the culmination of a lot of work since ‘Iron Man,’” she said. “She’s part of the tapestry now.”

“Thor: Ragnarok” will be released on Nov. 3.
