‘Creed’ Star Tessa Thompson Joins ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

'Creed' Star Tessa Thompson Joins 'Thor: Ragnarok'

Marvel may be down a movie, but given their upcoming slate of some very, very big pictures, the comic book movie makers have little to worry about. Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor is getting ready to wield his hammer for his third solo outing, and is getting a love interest to make eyes at.

Creed” and “Dear White People” star Tessa Thompson has joined “Thor: Ragnarok.” Of course, there’s no exact details on what her role is, but at the very least she’s filling the vacancy left by Natalie Portman who has departed the franchise. However, there have been rumors floating for a while that Valkyrie might be appearing in the movie. And that would be a good fit for Thompson, while also checking the “love interest” box, but who knows. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, and Cate Blanchett are set to star in the movie as well, which will be directed by Taika Waititi and open on November 3, 2017. [THR]
