Thor: Love and Thunder is set to debut in theaters on July 8th, almost five years since the release of its predecessor. Thor Ragnarok introduced us to Valkyrie, a former member of Asgard's elite guardians. For the most part, Valkyrie was just a standard Asgardian in terms of powers; she was super strong and durable.
However, the actress who plays Valkyrie recently appeared to reveal that the upcoming sequel will be expanding her skillset. One particularly out-there power that actress Tessa Thompson brought up was the ability to revive fallen allies while also possessing their bodies.
Given that Thompson was asked during the interview about her iteration of the character in particular, W Magazine as well as every other site that promptly shared the news assumed her answer also pertained to the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Valkyrie. It turns out that's not the case, as Thompson has now clarified on social media.
It seems the actress was actually talking about powers that Valkyrie has had in the comics. "In talking about Valkyrie to W Magazine, I was talking generally about powers that are canon and that I loved in reading the comics and not about Thor: Love and Thunder. I shan't be a home for spoilers," Thompson captioned the post.
Could this be backpedalling because she let something slip that she wasn't supposed to? Perhaps, but for now we'll just have to take her word for it and wait until Thor: Love and Thunder debuts in July to find out.
