THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER - Jaimie Alexander Volunteers To Be Valkyrie's Queen In The Upcoming Movie

THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER - Jaimie Alexander Volunteers To Be Valkyrie's Queen In The Upcoming Movie

At Comic-Con, Tessa Thomson said that Valkyrie will be looking for her "queen" in Thor: Love and Thunder, and now Jaimie Alexander has suggested that Sif could fill that role. Read on for details...

During Marvel Studios' Hall H panel at Comic-Con, Tessa Thompson revealed that as the King of New Asgard, she will be looking for her Queen in Thor: Love and Thunder

Since then, speculation has been running rampant about who that could be, and one fan-favourite suggestion is Jaimie Alexander's Sif. The character hasn't been seen since Thor: The Dark World (aside from a brief cameo in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) but fans have made it clear to Marvel Studios that they're desperate to see more of the Asgardian in action. 

Well, Alexander has now taken to social media to reveal that she would be interested in being Valkyrie's Queen, and this has to be a sign that she's also interested in returning to the MCU. 

Whether Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi feels the same way is another matter, but she would be a great choice for Valkyrie's Queen.

What do you guys think?

we learned about Thor: Love and Thunder at Comic-Con!

Why Is It Called "Love And Thunder"?

T4

It seems Marvel Studios is embracing some original subtitles for Phase 4 and Love and Thunder is definitely an interesting choice! When Waititi was asked for an explanation, both he and Hemsworth responded with, "There's nothing more powerful in the world than love and thunder." 

Assuming the plan is to delve into both Thor and Valkyrie's love lives (more on that later), this title actually makes more sense than you might think. That logo is also every bit as unique as Ragnarok's.
 

Will Korg Return?

Korg

Korg and Miek made an unexpected cameo appearance in one of Avengers: Endgame's funniest scenes, but will they have a role to play in Love and Thunder? "Who knows?" was all the filmmaker would say, clearly unwilling to give away even the most minor of details about Marvel's first..."fourquel"? 
 

The Script May Already Be Complete

T3

When Hemsworth and Thomspon were asked for details on the story and where we find the God of Thunder after everything he went through in Avengers: Endgame, neither of them could say.

That's not just a case of them being sworn to secrecy, either, because as Waititi puts it, "They haven't read the script." Does that imply the screenplay is already finished? It's certainly a possibility, and with Hemsworth wanting to take the rest of 2019 off, that late 2021 release date makes a lot of sense.
 

Valkyrie Is The MCU's First Openly Gay Superhero

Valkyrie3

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has said that an openly gay superhero is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we now know who that is. During the panel, Thompson was asked what Valkyrie will be doing as the new King of Asgard, and, well, she wants to find herself a Queen!

"I think, first of all as new King, she needs to find her Queen. That would be her first order of business. She has some ideas." Captain Marvel is one very popular suggestion, of course, and it will be interesting to find out who Marvel and Waititi plucks from the comic books for her to start dating. 

As for what the future holds in store for New Asgard, she reiterated that it's the people who make it, and said for Valkyrie, "The cool thing is to create refuge for any person who needs it."
 

The New Thor

T2

The biggest bombshell dropped at the panel came when Waititi announced which comic book run Love and Thunder will be based on. "When we were shooting Ragnarok, I was reading one storyline by Jason Aaron called 'The Mighty Thor.' For those of you who know that storyline it's incredible and full of love and emotion and thunder. It introduces, for the first time, a female Thor."

The director then called Portman out to the stage as she gets set to make her MCU return after a six year absence (the last time we saw Jane Foster was in Thor: The Dark World). 
 

Jane Foster Lifts The Hammer

T1

Waititi presented the actress with Mjolnir, to which she responded, "Feels pretty good. I always had a little hammer envy."

We still don't know how Mjolnir returns or what leads to Jane taking on the Thor mantle, but this is definitely a game-changer for the MCU and could bring Hemsworth's tenure as the character to a close. The question is, will Portman stick around for future Marvel films?

Well, things have certainly changed since 2013, and assuming she can continue playing a strong, female superhero, it's safe to assume that we could see her make the leap to The Avengers.

Continue reading below to check out the
logos for Marvel Studios' entire Phase 4 slate!

Image

During the panel, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that every movie released up until now is part of "The Infinity Saga." Here, we see the brand new logo for those first three phases. 
 
Image

This is a fairly simple logo but one which may match the tone. Kevin Feige said it will be 100% Jack Kirby-inspired so it's a little surprising that there's not more evidence of that in this title.
 
Image

Sadly, we'll never get to see Iron Man battle the real Mandarin but he will be the lead villain of this movie. In case the title didn't make it clear, that logo emphasises those ten (magic?) rings too.
 
Image

The Doctor Strange logo has received something of an overhaul but it's interesting to see how the subtitle is even bigger. Scarlet Witch will appear in the sequel so the red may be a homage to her.
 
Image

Just like Thor: Ragnarok had a very unique logo, so too does Thor: Love and Thunder. That's a title which could have a number of meanings, particularly now we know Valkyrie is indeed gay. 
 
Image

Honestly, what else did you expect? This is to the point and exactly what you would expect from a gritty movie featuring the fan-favourite Avenger. It's good to see her logo front and centre too.
 
Image

The biggest surprise at Comic-Con was, of course, the fact that Blade is returning to the big screen. This logo perfectly emcompasses the fact that the Vampire Hunter operates both night and day. 
 
Image

This may be titled The Falcon and The Winter Soldier but the presence of Captain America's shield should tell you all you need to know; Sam Wilson is going to take on that persona on Disney+!
 
Image

This is still a pretty weird title but it's easy to see the 50s inspiration here. It's been said on a number of occasions that the show will have a retro aesthetic as we head into the MCU's suburbs.
 
Image

This title treatment is very different and it's hard to say what, if anything, it tells us about the series. What we do know, though, is that it will revolve around the God of Mischief from 2012. 
 
Image

This is simple but awesome and if you look closely, you may notice that we get what could be our first look at the show's animation style. Is that the Red Skull wearing Captain America's suit?
 
Image

The logo for Hawkeye is obviously inspired by Matt Fraction's run and that makes sense, especially as the comic book series revolved around Clint Barton training and working with Kate Bishop. 
Image

And here it is, Marvel's Phase 4 slate. However, this probably isn't the entire slate because these movies and TV shows are only spread out over two years and that would be a very short Phase!
