RUMOR: Tessa Thompson Playing Valkyrie In Thor: Ragnarok

When Deadline announced the casting of Thompson in Thor: Ragnarok, they also stated the character would be “a kind of superhero and will appear in other Marvel films as well.” All signs began pointing to Thompson playing either Valkyrie or Angela, and considering the former nearly appeared in Thor: The Dark World, it seemed a safe bet that’s who she’d be.

The folks over at Latino Review are now saying they’ve heard just that: Tessa Thompson will play the Asgardian Brunnhilde, better known as Valkyrie, the leader of the Valkyrior who ushers fallen warriors to Valhalla. They also have some story information regarding the character, and while these are rumors, we still want to caution you with a SPOILER warning.

According to LR’s sources, “The final showdown with Hela 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.” This would connect all the previous rumors about the film, including the presence of Valkyrie, Hela, and Heimdall and also support Kevin Feige‘s statements about the epic nature of Ragnarok and the effect it will have on the MCU going forward.

Little bit of a difference I think. Photo from Comic Book
