Tessa Thompson is ready to play her Valkyrie again in Marvel’s next big outing, Thor: Love and Thunder. While we’ve loved her fiery character in the MCU so far, it looks like Valkyrie is getting a new look as well. In a new photo doing the rounds, Tessa shared her superhero’s enhanced look.
In the photo, Tessa poses in a mirror selfie while wearing a new costume. It’s black and white and Tessa shows off pigtails along with part of her shaved head. Whether the creators have tried to keep her new look in line with the Marvel comic books remains to be seen. For now, Valkyrie fans are intriguing enough for the film’s release later this year.

Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie was last seen in Avengers: Endgame, where he battled Thanos’ army alongside the OG six and all the other superheroes of the MCU. The movie ends with Thor hand over the responsibilities of ruler of Asgard to his most loyal soldier, before embarking on the starship with the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth film in Thor’s standalone franchise. It brings Natalie Portman back as Jane Foster to take on the mantle of the God of Thunder and wield the Mjolnir. The actor has said that the film will use elements from the famous Mighty Thor storyline.
While Chris Hemsworth returns in his titular role, he also stars with other Marvel actors such as Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Sean Gunn, Pom Klementieff and more. Directed by Taika Waititi, Christian Bale will join as Gorr the God Butcher, the film’s villain, and Russell Crowe as Zeus, the Marvel character derived from the mythical Greek king of the gods.
