The official site and Facebook page are online, as long as the press kit. From the director’s notes:

The main idea for Manifesto was not to illustrate the particular manifesto texts, but rather to allow Cate to embody the manifestos. She is the manifesto. And it was clear from the beginning that she would become many different persona at once. In the end, Cate played 13 characters: a broker, a conservative mother, a manager, a funeral speaker, a punk, a choreographer, a teacher, a factory worker, a newsreader, a reporter, a puppeteer, a scientist and a homeless man. As we only had 11 days to shoot with her, all in Berlin and its surroundings, we had to produce an average outcome of twelve minutes a day, which is pretty similar to the timeframe of a very cheap TV soap opera. But of course we didn‘t want to work on the aesthetic level of a TV soap. So we needed a very generous team – most department heads have long been a part of our growing art-film family. But most of all we needed a very generous Cate to work under these conditions. It was a tour de force for everybody involved. But certainly Cate outstripped us all with her immeasurable enthusiasm and commitment.
One challenge was the huge amount of text to be spoken in twelve different accents which Cate had to overcome. And then each of the characters had to speak in entirely different physical milieus. As if this weren’t enough, for organizational reasons sometimes we even had to cover two roles per day, which also meant an additional costume and makeup change for Cate and the hair and makeup team. For instance, we had to do half of the scene with the homeless man on the same day as the newsreader. Not to mention what this meant to the set designer and his team – crazy. Cate surprised me every day with ideas, emerging from the depths of her profound experience and incredible talent. I have described her before as an artist-scientist, deeply researching the human condition. Every day was different for all of us, like entering Wonderland, encountering an entirely new world and character. And the way that the dialogue – or better, monologue – shaped the scene was constantly shifting and exciting. And the best of all: despite the highest level of concentration and dedication, and the many working hours each day, Cate admirably retained her very special sense of humor during work.
We laughed a lot.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’: Cate Blanchett Took Inspiration From Cosplayers for Hela’s Look

Hi everyone!

In this new interview, Cate discusses the sources of inspiration for Hela’s look. Enjoy the reading!

‘Thor: Ragnarok’: Cate Blanchett Took Inspiration From Cosplayers for Hela’s Look

She’s played Queen Elizabeth, Bob Dylan, and elven royalty. So perhaps one of the few acting challenges left for Cate Blanchett is tackling a comic-book villain. She’s about to prove her Marvel mettle this fall as Hela, the Asgardian goddess of death who’ll wreak havoc in the November Avenger sequel Thor: Ragnarok.

Hela, who has had multiple incarnations in the comics, usually wears an elaborate headdress, but Blanchett also gave a lot of thought to how she’d look without her gear — and took some inspiration from fans online.

“When I was starting to think about how she might look, I went back to the fanbase,” said Blanchett, who recently spoke to Yahoo. “All these girls were doing Hela makeup looks on YouTube. I thought about what their takes on her were. I spoke to Marvel about what she would look like when she would be unmasked, so she wasn’t a faceless, generic baddie. They were very open to everything.”

Blanchett was first drawn to the project by director Taika Waititi and “his unique, slightly askew take on the universe,” she said. In Ragnarok, our hero, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), will battle Hela when she’s inadvertently unleashed on Asgard after spending millennia locked away. The scale of destruction that she represents is enough to unite the god of thunder with his seriously estranged brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his Avenger rival the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), who’s along for this intergalactic ride.

The Marvel universe “needed a bit of a shakeup,” the actress said. “I didn’t realize until I got on the set that this is the first Marvel film incarnation of a female villain. What decade are we in? It was shocking to me. The character they created is ballsy and front-footed.” Hela also happens to be the reason Blanchett, 47, has some new street cred with her four children. “I earned a few brownie points,” she bragged.
