In an EXCLUSIVE interview with CinePOP, actress Tessa Thompson opened up about her return as Valkyrie in “Thor: Love and Thunder.”
Now that she is the king of Asgard, the character has new challenges. Tessa talked about the importance of representation for her character to be bisexual, and even revealed which Marvel characters she would like to have in her solo movie.
“I miss Mark Ruffalo and I miss Banner and Hulk. He would be my first choice. And anyone from Wakanda. I would love to be able to…fight alongside any of the amazing Wakandans, especially the amazing warriors. The Valkyrie would identify with them. In this movie we have Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder, two intergalactic goats. Giant goats. Look at them, they’re wonderful. They are, and they scream a lot. They should be with me. Miek would be definitely with me. The Wakandans are the only fighters in this group, but I think we will get along very well. I think we would be fine.
