As if Avengers: Infinity War didn’t already have an impressive enough cast, Avengers 4 is reportedly gaining one of the best actresses working today.
Tessa Thompson, who played Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, was left out of Infinity War, leading many Marvel Cinematic Universe fans to worry that she died when Thanos and the Black Order destroyed the Asgardian refugee ship. The MCU wouldn’t do Bianca like that. “There certainly were survivors,” co-director Joe Russo confirmed. “Thor does say to the Guardians that [Thanos] slaughtered half his people, [but] prior to the start of that scene escape ships were deployed for Asgardians, including Valkyrie.” Thompson, and her $10,000 wig, are safe.
It also sounds like she’ll be in Avengers 4.
Thompson was spotted in Georgia with Chris Hemsworth, her Ragnarok and Men in Black spin-off co-star. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that “after wrapping up some filming for Men in Black in London,” the galaxy defenders “posted video of themselves boarding a private jet headed to Atlanta,” where Avengers 4 reshoots are currently being shot. It’s probably not a misdirect, either: there’s visual proof of them getting off the plane together.
This is more exciting than Thompson’s last MCU appearance.
