Star Wars: The Last Jedi
In an interview with Andrew Garfield about Andy Serkis’ directing of Breathe, the actor recalls a meeting with Serkis while he was filming Supreme Leader Snoke’s scenes for The Last Jedi “dressed in his performance-capture leotard and the required white dots, and even wore faux hair on his face.” Considering everything we’ve seen of Supreme Leader Snoke so far shows him as very much hairless, the faux hair could be indicative of us seeing another different look for Snoke at some point in the film.

Speaking with Screen Rant, producer Brad Winderbaum revealed that Loki is (naturally) responsible for the arrival of Hela.
[When] we left Loki, he kind of achieved his goals, he became the king of Asgard, and he is ruling that place. And what we come to learn, what Thor comes to learn early on, is that there’s a lot of terrible things in the cosmos that just shouldn’t be that way. And we learn that Odin was doing far more than it seemed on the surface to keep the universe safe.
There were all these threats that he had quelled or was keeping at bay, using his strength and power to do so, that Loki was completely unprepared for. So he becomes the King of Asgard, everything is great, it’s a good party. But he failed to realize the threats that were just over the horizon, Hela being the biggest and most terrible one of all.
