When news broke that Lena Headey had been cut from Thor, many fans were confused. Headey is a well-known actress with a strong fan base, so why would she be cut from such a high-profile movie? The answer may lie in the fact that her character, Hela, simply wasn’t needed in the story.
In the original script, Hela was supposed to be a major player in the film, but her role was ultimately reduced to just a few scenes. Even those scenes were cut down during filming, and Headey’s performance didn’t live up to expectations. As a result, she was cut from the final film.
Lena Headey, who is best known for her role as Cersei Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, was reportedly cut from the cast of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. Headey was set to play the role of Hera, the queen of the Asgardians and wife of Odin (played by Anthony Hopkins). However, her scenes were reportedly cut from the final film.
It is not clear why Headey was cut from the film, but it is possible that her scenes simply did not fit into the final edit. Thor: The Dark World is now in theaters and Headey can next be seen in 300: Rise of an Empire, which opens in February 2014.
What Role was Lena Headey Playing in Thor?
Lena Headey played the role of Frigga, Thor’s mother, in the movie Thor. She was a powerful Asgardian queen and goddess who could wield magic. She was also a skilled warrior and protector of her people.
Lena Headey brought a regal presence to the role and helped to create a strong female character in the movie.
Lena Headey Thor Role
Lena Headey, who is best known for her role as Cersei Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, is set to play a major role in the upcoming Marvel movie Thor: Ragnarok. Headey will join Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston in the third installment of the Thor franchise. She will play Hela, the goddess of death.
Hela is one of the most powerful villains in the Marvel universe and she will be a major threat to Thor and Asgard in Ragnarok. This will be Headey’s first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and she joins a growing list of Game of Thrones stars who have made the jump to superhero movies.
Who was Cut from Thor 4?
In Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay by Eric Pearson, and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
Marvel Studios has released very little information about who was cut from Thor 4. However, it is safe to say that anyone who did not make it into the final film was likely cut for time or budgetary reasons. With such an expansive cast, it is not surprising that some characters had to be left out.
Will There Be a Thor 5?
It’s hard to say for sure if there will be a Thor 5, as it depends on a number of factors. The most important factor is probably how successful Thor: Ragnarok is at the box office. If the movie does well, then it’s likely that Marvel will want to make another Thor movie.
However, if the movie doesn’t do as well as expected, then it’s possible that Marvel will decide not to make another Thor movie. Another factor that could affect whether or not there is a Thor 5 is the availability of Chris Hemsworth. Hemsworth has said in the past that he plans on taking a break from acting after Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel.
If Hemsworth takes an extended break from acting, or decides to retire from acting altogether, then it’s unlikely that there would be a fifth Thor movie without him. Finally, it’s worth noting that Marvel has plans for many more movies beyond Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel. So even if Thor: Ragnarok is successful and Chris Hemsworth is available to star in another Thor movie, it’s possible that Marvel may choose to focus on other projects instead of making another Thor film right away.
In 2011, Lena Headey was cast as the lead in Marvel Studios’ “Thor” but her role was ultimately cut from the film. According to a recent interview, Headey said she was “heartbroken” when she found out her part had been cut. She had signed on to play the character of Thor’s mother, Frigga, but due to creative differences between Marvel and director Kenneth Branagh, her role was ultimately eliminated.
