During an interview with Total Film, Tessa Thompson (interpreter of Valkyrie) spoke briefly about his role in the film, stating:
I think it is very fair, egalitarian. He is a kind King. I know there has been some confusion regarding the term “King” and his gender. The truth is that the title “King of Asgard” is like this, it was the position he should have held Thor, and she didn’t bother changing her title. I think she thought, “I can be King, where’s the problem?”
He loves being on Earth, he loves the inhabitants of Earth, and he loves New Asgard. She obviously is bored with bureaucratic issues, and perhaps she lacks a real purpose. For this, when his old friend Thor asks for help, accepts immediately. You need a challenge.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder will arrive at the cinema on July 6 2022.
In the cast they return Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster / the Mighty Thor), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif), Chris Pratt (Peter Quill / Star-Lord), Bradley Cooper (Rocket), Vin Diesel (Groot), Dave Bautista(Drax), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Karen Gillan (Nebula) And Sean Gunn(Kraglin), together with the new entries Christian Bale in the role of the villain Gorr the Slaughterer of Gods And Russell Crowe in the role of Zeus.
