A new image from the set of Thor: Love and Thunder show Tessa Thompson‘s new Valkyrie costume. The heroine was first introduced in Thor: Ragnarok and became the leader of the Asgardites on earth after Thor (Chris Hemsworth) embarks on its galactic adventure at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
The new image is circulating on Twitter shows Thompson with braided hair and a new armor that mimics Thor’s classic look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Valkyrie’s new costume has the circular metal plates each repetition of Thors, which may indicate that Valkyrie takes over the Thunder Gods’ place as queen of Asgård.
Inspired by Jason Aarondriving on The Mighty Thor comics, Love and Thunder will see Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) claims the hammer and transforms into the God of Thunder as a new villain called Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) threatens the entire universe.
In the comics, Goor is on a bloody crusade to wipe out any god from the universe, which may explain why Russell Crowe reportedly joins the film as Marvel’s version of Zeus. Gorr is empowered by All-Black in the comics, a mysterious sword also known as Necrosword. The weapon is forged by Knull, the god of symbiotes, and has an intimate relationship with Venom’s latest heroic journey in the comics. While it’s unknown whether MCU’s Gorr will have any relation to Venom, there may be a connection to Sony’s universe of Spider-Man characters, as the hive mind that all symbiotes (and Knull) share was recently teased in Venom: Let there be carnage.
After his excellent work on Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi is back to direct Love and Thunder from a manuscript he co-authored Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. Thor: Love and Thunder will also see the return of Chris Pratt as Peter Quill / Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, and Karen Gillan as Nebula.
It is also expected that Hemsworths Thor will play a part in the coming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as the two franchises are now deeply intertwined. And for fans of the Asgardian play included in Ragnarok, Matt Damon will repeat his cameo role as actor Loki in Love and Thunder, with Luke Hemsworth also returns as actor Thor.
Thor: Love and Thunder coming to theaters on February 11, 2022. Check out the new set image below.
From cartoons to bloody slashers to (supposedly) ‘Avatar 2.’
