A new photo from the set of Thor: Love and Thunder gives us our first look at Tessa Thompson’s new Valkyrie look.
Marvel Studios’ slate for the upcoming year is one of the most impressive we’ve seen. Perhaps the most anticipated film to come out of the studio this year is Thor: Love and Thunder, which will see Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster taking on the Asgardian mantle. Joining Portman for the latest entry in the franchise is the son of Odin himself: Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, the new ruler of Asgard.
With a significant change in dynamic for the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, it makes sense that our favorite characters are getting radical costume changes. Ahead of the film’s summer release, a brand new set photo from the Taika Waititi-directed film gives fans their first look at Tessa Thompson’s new look as the ruler of Asgard.
Tessa Thompson’s new look is definitely more regal than her previous digs. That being said, Valkyrie’s signature, the battle-ready aesthetic is still present, making it the perfect marriage between the old and the new. We’re just hoping to see the suit in action once Thor: Love and Thunder arrives this year.
Chris Hemsworth is set to return as Thor in the MCU’s Love and Thunder, which will also see Jane Foster becoming the next God of Thunder. With Foster now becoming Mighty Thor, it’s possible that Hemsworth’s future with the Marvel franchise could wrap up.
Directed by Taika Waititi from a script he co-wrote with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, Jaimie Alexander, Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, and Jeff Goldblum. Matt Damon, Sam Neill, Luke Hemsworth, Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, and Russell Crowe are also on board.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released on July 8, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming Marvel film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
