She’s going through cancer treatment and is a superhero on the side.”
Did Tessa Thompson Spoil Thor Love And Thunder?
There are many reasons why Thor’s Love And Thunder is one of the most anticipated films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thus, it was justified when fans were going bananas over the news that actress Tessa Thompson who plays Valkyrie in MCU, has spilled some beans about the upcoming movie.

She mentioned that Valkyrie is capable of sending people to Valhalla, i.e., the afterlife. She also added that Valkyrie can even resurrect the dead in some cases in addition to her superhuman strength and endurance. Tessa’s comments about resurrecting the dead and sending people to after-life have sparked the rumor that the has accidentally spoiled the potential plot for Thor Love And Thunder!
After the rumors started spreading like wildfire, the actress clarified that she had not spilled any spoilers about the upcoming film. Tessa shared an Instagram story addressing the matter in which she said, “In talking about Valkyrie. I was talking generally about powers that are canon.

Thor is the only one among the original Avengers Trinty who has not yet received a happy ending with his love. In the 2011 movie, Thor fell in love with Earth scientist Jane Foster, who also had feelings for him, but things couldn’t work out for the duo.

Since then, Jane has been missing from the scene.
Meanwhile, Thor, while wandering on adventures in Thor Ragnarok, met Valkyrie. And everybody could sense the chemistry and the spark between the two. In Avenger Endgame, there was a scene when Thor tries to initiate a kiss with Valkyrie. T he sequence clearly signifies that he has developed feelings for her. However, for poor Thor, things never work out as they should. In the upcoming thor Love And Thunder, we know that long-lost Jane Foster will be returning to the scene.
