Thanks to Tessa Thompson, 'Thor: Ragnarok' Is a Thing We're Excited About Now

After the perfectly serviceable and mostly forgettable franchise installment that was Thor: The Dark World, its follow-up, Thor: Ragnarok, has been right in the middle of my list of Things I Have No Feelings About. If a sequel is simply “fine,” the next movie after it probably isn’t going to blow anyone away. Add to that the excitement suck that was Age of Ultron, and maybe I’m in the minority here, but I just couldn’t bring myself to muster up much excitement for another gigantic end of days battle.

And then they went and cast Tessa Thompson and now I can’t stop mustering.

We don’t know who she’ll be playing, but according to Deadline, she’s coming in as Thor’s love interest, but also “will be a kind of superhero and will appear in other Marvel films as well.” EXCUSE ME FOR ONE MOMENT WHILE WE CELEBRATE WITH DANCE.

Since we still have a year and a half before Ragnarok’s release date, we obviously need to begin speculating on Thompson’s role now. Fans of Creed, Dear White People, Selma, and even Veronica Mars (Jackie was the worst, but Thompson has proven herself to be the very best) know that she’s coming in with some great qualifications, like her stone cold death stare,

And her ability to make our tingly parts tingle.

So who could she be playing? The most popular hypothesis (or maybe just hope) right now seems to be that she’ll be coming in as Valkyrie, the leader of a group of warrior goddesses who guided fallen soldiers to Valhalla.

Rumors of Valkyrie (aka Brunnhilde) showing up in Ragnarok started last fall, so this isn’t a wild guess. However, in the comics world, Jane Foster (played by Natalie Portman in the movies) has taken up Thor’s hammer as of late. Word is that Portman’s not returning (as far as I know, that hasn’t been confirmed, though), but it wouldn’t be too crazy to think the MCU might try a different woman as Thor.

For extra fun, Thompson will be starring opposite Natalie Portman in Alex Garland’s Annihilation, and Anthony Hopkins in Westworld, so let the interconnected universe yarn walling commence!
