THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Storyboards May Confirm Plans For Valkyrie And Sif Romance THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Storyboards May Confirm Plans For Valkyrie And Sif Romance

Some new storyboards for Marvel Studios' Thor: Love and Thunder have been revealed, and they may confirm rumors of initial plans to have Valkyrie find her queen...

Prior to Thor: Love and Thunder hitting theaters, Valkyrie actress Tessa Thompson said that her character's arc would involve her searching for "a queen" to rule alongside her in New Asgard. This was never addressed in the movie, and it was generally assumed that the subplot was left on the cutting room floor.

Shortly afterwards, rumors did the rounds that Lady Sif (Jamie Alexander) was initially going to embark on a relationship with Valkyrie, and some new storyboards may confirm that this was the original plan.

At the very least, they reveal that Alexander's perennially underutilized warrior was going to have a bigger role and share the screen with Thompson, and insider MTTSH seems fairly certain that romance was indeed in the air before Marvel Studios decided to go in a different direction.

Sif showed up in the Ragnarok sequel when she was discovered by Thor after losing an arm during her face-off with Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), and was later seen training Axl on New Asgard. Her brief role was largely played for laughs (like pretty much every other character), but there's always a chance Alexander will be given an opportunity to return to The MCU down the line.

As for a potential Thor 5, a recent rumor claimed that the movie was in development with Taika Waititi likely set to return as director, but the trades appeared to debunk the report.

Thor: Love and Thunder finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

They could have a foursome with Valkyrie, Sif, Jane Foster and Thor.

Did the writers of Love & Thundet get that idea from a porn movie while they were jerking off?

Ahhh another another article from random dudes tweeting. It's not tweet anymore, what is it now X-ing?
StSteven - 9/4/2023, 7:22 PM
@EgoEgor - No no no, X-ing is what Luke Skywalker flies. Or when you hit on your buddy's ex. Or crossing the street. Or that's just a f**king stupid name for a platform. But Musk gonna Musk I guess.

@RolandD - Couldn't have said it better myself. Especially because it seems he is involved in a number of government projects (NASA, providing Internet service to Ukraine through his vast array of satellites (the more than 4500 satellites for his StarLink system make up more than 50% of all the satellites currently in the sky), etc.), it totally reminds me Hammer building his robot drones. In fact, it wouldn't surprise if he's working on real-life military robot drones of his own. I mean Stark tried and we all know how that all turned out. And Musk is no Tony Stark (for as much as he would like to think he is).
RolandD - 9/5/2023, 6:42 PM
@StSteven - All excellent points.
StSteven - 9/5/2023, 7:59 PM
@RolandD - And just to be clear, I have a great deal of admiration for what Musk has accomplished and his POSITIVE impact on the world so far. I mean, hell, 60% of the EV charging stations in the US are provided by him. Plus without Tesla, we probably wouldn't have had this push into EVs in the US like we have. And he also has another company (can't remember the name right now) that utilizes the battery technology from Tesla for solar power. So he's done some great things. It's just that... the more time goes on the more political he gets and that's can be cause for concern because you start to wonder if the motivation behind what he and by extension his companies are doing is for the greater good of advancing science and technology or some kind of a political agenda.

As a scientist myself (well, Data Scientist) my work is all done without political consideration, despite my personal beliefs, as I believe should be the case for any scientist, medical doctor, engineer, etc. Like if someone develops the cure for cancer, should they be allowed to only administer it to those who agree with them politically? God I hope not. But my concern with Musk is that considering all that he and his companies are involved in, he's becoming increasingly political and even unhinged over the years, and I was listening to something recently discussing how those closest to Musk have been increasingly concerned about his deteriorating mental health.

That's not exactly encouraging for someone who has a significant amount of control over the majority of the EV cars and charging stations, space exploration, the internet service of a country at war, the amount of satellites in orbit (BTW he plans to have as many as 42,000 in coming years), and social media. If we start seeing him show up to events bald in a gray suit with a monocle, then I'm going to get REALLY worried.

So, saving a chick in battle equals bumping tacos?

@Feralwookiee - That movie is a guilty pleasure of mine...
StSteven - 9/4/2023, 7:24 PM
@Feralwookiee @MosquitoFarmer - Um, so what movie is that exactly? I'm asking for a friend of mine who is a, um, tunnel-scissors-taco-engineer-chef.
Feralwookiee - 9/4/2023, 8:21 PM
@StSteven - I gotta be honest, I don't even know.
It's just a funny reaction gif.

@Feralwookiee - Disney gonna Disney...
StSteven - 9/4/2023, 10:55 PM
@Feralwookiee - That it is. It's just that @MosquitoFarmer said it was from a movie, and I'm pretty familiar with movies that have that sense of humor, so I'm surprised that it doesn't ring a bell. That being said, I used to party a lot when I was younger, so there are definitely some holes in my recollection of things during that time like movies, TV shows, classes, people, etc. Ya know 😉.
MosquitoFarmer - 9/5/2023, 12:42 AM
@StSteven - Scary Movie 5. Don’t get too excited though. There’s a reason it’s a guilty pleasure for me; it’s not good, but it does make me laugh.
StSteven - 9/5/2023, 4:30 PM
@MosquitoFarmer - Ah, that makes sense. I've been a fan of the Wayans since "In Living Color" so I've seen most of the "Scary Movie"s but I don't recall 5, so either I haven't seen it or I was pretty f**ked up when I did. Either is equally likely.

I'm all about inclusion but sometimes these stuff feel too damn forced.
marvel72 - 9/4/2023, 6:59 PM
@Alucard28 - Everytime it seems forced.
Vigor - 9/4/2023, 6:27 PM
I know this to be true because before the movie came out, Tessa was talking about "finding her queen" since she was now King of Asgard. Then in the movie, nothing hinted at such

Woman helps another woman in battle.

"They must be lesbians."
Feralwookiee - 9/4/2023, 6:41 PM
@JobinJ - That's pretty much everything nowdays with this generation.

Steve and Bucky are friends.

How progressive. 😑
KaptainKhaos - 9/4/2023, 8:44 PM
@JobinJ - according to history they were just "good friends"
