Fans of Thor: Ragnarok, hold on to your seats, as Tessa Thompson has just revealed that a fourth Thor movie directed by Taika Waititi himself might be happening.
During a press tour for her new indie film Little Woods, Thompson who played the hard-drinking Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok spoke about what she knew of the potential sequel to Thor: Ragnarok.
“I heard that a pitch has happened for [another Thorfilm]. I don’t know how real that intel is, but I hear that the pitch has happened. I think the idea is Taika [Waititi, who directed Ragnarok] would come back,” Thompson told the Los Angeles Times.
This move would make sense given that Thor’s actor Chris Hemsworth has mentioned before about how he was ‘exhausted’ and ‘underwhelmed’ with previous iterations of Thor in his first two movies, before Waititi came along and breathed fresh air into the Asgardian’s story. He has also expressed a desire to further explore Waititi’s new take on the God of Thunder.
In an interview with Yahoo News, Hemsworth said, “I’d play this character for as long as anyone would let me. I’ve loved it so much. But the combination of this many characters in this Phase Three, as Marvel calls it, you’ll never have this interaction with this many people again. Who knows what the future holds and whether they do prequels and sequels or whatever, I’d be open to anything. But right now, this is where we finish up.”
During the events of Infinity War, Thompson’s Valkyrie was nowhere to be found, and it was only later confirmed by a #AvengeTheFallen poster released on Marvel’s Facebook page that Valkyrie survived Thanos’ universe-levelling snap.
Of course, Thompson was often asked where her character was during the events of the film, to which she would reply that Valkyrie was hanging out in a bar. Though, due to the highly secretive nature of the Avengers: Endgame, Thompson is unable to reveal whether her character will be making an appearance in the upcoming film or not.
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long to find out as Avengers: Endgame will be hitting theatres this week, on April 24.
