Is This Tessa Thompson’s Role in THOR: RAGNAROK?
Latino Review reports that Natalie Portman was leaving the Thor series and that Tessa Thompson would be stepping in to take her place as the female lead in Thor: Ragnarok.
Thompson supposedly will be playing Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok. If you dont know who Valkyrie is in the Thor comics, she was first introduced in the ’70s. Valkyrie is a warrior and lead a team of warriors called the Valkyrior. Valkyrie has been an enemy, ally and love interest for Thor through the years…..
According to the storyline for Thor: Ragnarok, Hela unleashes hell on Asgard and Thor attempts to stop her. In the process, Hela destroys his hammer and murders Heimdall. They go on to say that there will be an epic battle at the end of the film that will feature “an army of the dead commanded by the villainess doing battle with good Valkyries from Valhalla and the souls of the righteous fallen, including Heimdall.”
Latino-Review is now reporting that that Thompson will play a big part in this epic battle. Her part was previously described as ”a kind of superhero and will appear in other Marvel films as well.” The report also states the following:
In the comics, this character’s real name is Brunnhilde, and she is chosen by Odin to lead the Valkyrior, the Asgardians who roam battlefields, and select the honorable dead for Valhalla. The title of Valkyrie just applies to whomever leads the Valkyries though, so we may or may not be seeing her before she takes on said title. Either way, this character aligns with the report, and could very well appear again in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.
Would you like to see this. Does that mean she will also be part of the Infinity War movies?
