Tessa Thompson is just as much a star as Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth. As such, all eyes are on her journey in the upcoming fourth entry, Thor: Love and Thunder, that’ll continue where we left off with her character during Avengers: Endgame. Now, she serves as the king of Asgard and it’s not all as rosy as she hoped for it to be, as Thompson reveals during the official press conference for Love and Thunder.
With this one, we also talked about the idea of someone that has a job that they really love, but they’re also kind of disgruntled. She, you know, was a professional soldier for thousands of years and now finds herself kind of stuck in bureaucracy. So, she’s really missing being on the battlefield and missing her sisters. And so, it’s been great fun to get to have that again, with Natalie in particular as Mighty Thor.Tessa Thompson
From the sounds of it, Thompson had a blast exploring this character, especially how her role was set up in Avengers: Endgame. It makes sense that the noble warrior may have underestimated the new role given to her, especially when Earth is mostly about bureaucracy. We got a glimpse of it in the trailers and it’ll be interesting to see if this might also shift Asgard’s place on Earth in one way or another.
We’ve got a hint that they’ve seen quite the tourism boom, which may also have led to Valkyrie being busy with more business dealings rather than bad guy takedowns. Perhaps the battle with Gorr also opens up her views on enjoying the quiet moments before they vanish.
