Valkyrie will have new “weird and erotic” powers

After being able to discover the new Valkyrie costume in the next installment of Thor entitled Love and Thunder, we know today thanks to his interpreter Tessa Thompson that his character will have new powers in the film. For the actress, these are powers that will be faithful to the comics that it describes “strange” and “pretty erotic“.

New costume and new powers for Valkyrie

Indeed, Tessa Thompson will wear her Valkyrie costume again in Thor : Love and Thunder after having embodied it in Ragnarok and Avengers : Endgame. She will be back alongside Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Christian Bale who joins the cast to play Gorr the Slayer of the Gods.

So far in the MCU movies, Valkyrie has been shown to us riding his Pegasus and demonstrating dexterity in combat coupled with superhuman strength. But those are very few powers compared to those she has in the Marvel comics. The good news is that Thor 4 should show us more. As the actress just announced during a recent interview, without explaining precisely what types of powers she will have and will be shown to us, Thompson admits that his skills in this new episode will be “strange” and “pretty erotic :

She has some weird skills to be honest. She can sense when someone is near death and she takes them to Valhalla, which is essentially the afterlife. She can bring people back to life. But when it brings people back to life, sometimes it ends up in their bodies. It’s a weird thing. it can be quite erotic. And then she has superhuman strength.

Tessa Thompson is therefore referring here to the “lethal glow” that only she can see when someone is threatened with death. A peculiarity that most Asgardians and humans are not able to perceive.

So, it’s rather good news to know that Valkyrie will be able to have these powers which will be faithful to those who are present in the comics. This will show us that the character is much more than a warrior goddess of Asgard riding a winged mount.

As a reminder, Thor : Love and Thunder is in post-production and the film is expected in theaters on July 13, 2022.
