Ragnarok Edit imagines Hela as the thunder god’s twin
A disturbing fan-edited video from Thor: Ragnarok imagines the God of Thunder and Hela as identical twins, with both sides played by Chris Hemsworth.
A disturbing Thor: Ragnarok fan-edit imagines the god of thunder and Hela, the goddess of death, as twins – with the two characters played by Chris Hemsworth. Taika Waititi’s 2017 MCU film drastically changed the trajectory of the Asgardian Prince’s arc in the franchise. It was used as a launching pad for Thor’s journey through both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
With his lighter version of the character of Thor, Ragnarok was definitely funnier than its predecessors. Despite its tone, however, the film actually told a tragic tale. Aside from the death of Odin (Anthony Hopkins) at the start of the movie and the destruction of Asgard at the end, Ragnarok also revealed the former Allfather’s secret and ugly past with the introduction of his daughter, Hela. Portrayed by Cate Blanchett, the Goddess of Death was Odin’s firstborn, who was banished after attempting to pursue plans to invade her and her father. In order to prevent it from wreaking new havoc, Ragnarok sees Thor and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) put aside their differences and team up to take down their long-lost sister.
Now a fan has revisited the 2017 blockbuster and imagines what Hela would look like if she and Thor were not just siblings, but identical twins. Fan-edited video, shared on Reddit by one user, reimagines clips of The original from Waititi Ragnarok movie. However, to make things more bizarre, the video visualizes Hemsworth playing the Goddess of Death instead of Blanchett, creating a rather disturbing version of the villainous character.

Marvel’s popular Disney + show What if…?, who imagines how the Infinity Saga would have unfolded had certain elements been changed, has sparked a new trend in edits and fan-made imagery. Many viewers took the premise of the series as a challenge to come up with their own storylines. Add to that the idea that alternate realities may exist in the MCU due to the existence of the properly established multiverse, and the internet is now home to hundreds of creative, fun, and at times downright bizarre possibilities. While the above Ragnarok the storyline seems to be created for sheer fun, What if…? recently addressed a similar concept based on siblings in Episode 7, which explored how Thor’s life might have changed had he not grown up with Loki as a brother.
There are still a lot of questions regarding Hela’s character, such as her supposed disappearance at the end of Ragnarok was not actually displayed on the screen. Since, while Thor: Ragnarok Seemingly marked her death, Surely Marvel Studios could find a way to resurrect her in future MCU movies if she was needed again. If Hela ever returns, fans might receive an explanation as to why the Goddess of Death ultimately looks more like Loki than her biological brother. This is an interesting storytelling element that loyal franchise followers have pointed out before, but with Hela and Odin dead, it has never been properly examined. It’s likely Marvel has cleverly left this topic open for exploration in future projects, and it’ll be interesting to see when, or if, it ever comes to fruition.
