Tessa Thompson shows off Valkyrie’s sword from Thor: Ragnarok
As production chugs along on Thor: Ragnarok, MCU newcomer Tessa Thompson has revealed a new photo from the set on Instagram (via CBM) showing off the sword that her character Valkyrie will wield in the film. In addition, director Taika Waititi posted a photo from the short he debuted at San Diego Comic-Con regarding what Thor was up to during Captain America: Civil War. Check them both out in the gallery below!
Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay hails from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost. Current plans call for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Phase Three” chapter to shoot until October, although production could feasibly continue through the end of the year.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.
