With the release of Thor: Love and Thunder in less than three months, still little is known about the film. With no trailer, a lot of information about the fourth Thor movie has been making its way through merchandise leaks. Recently, Marvel Legends toys offered the first look at Christian Bale’s villain Gorr the God Butcher. Now, a closer look at the box of Valkyrie’s toy seems to confirm Tessa Thompson’s role in Love and Thunder. It states:
When a dangerous new visitor threatens the livelihood of New Asgard, King Valkyrie is forced to take up her sword once more to defend her people.
This apparently confirms Valkyrie’s role as King Valkyrie, which was hinted at the tail end of Avengers: Endgame in 2019. It also suggests that King Valkyrie is maybe reluctant to fight or maybe had attempted to live a peaceful, quiet life as leader of New Asgard only for this “dangerous new visitor“—likely Gorr—to change her plans. Check out a better look at the box below:
Thor: Love and Thunder will release in theaters on July 8, 2022.
