One of the most highly-anticipated Marvel projects on deck for this year is none other than Thor: Love and Thunder. The film marks the return of Chris Hemsworth as Thor, alongside Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie. However, there will also be some new faces gracing the big screen making their MCU debuts. Those include Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher and Russell Crowe as Zeus. Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster is also back – as she’s expected to become a superhero herself. With that being said, one major plot point fans are looking forward to is seeing Valkyrie as the queen of Asgard.
This, of course, was after Thor surrendered the throne to her in the closing moments of Avengers: Endgame. Now it’s up to Valkyrie to rule what’s left of her people following their planet’s destruction at the hands of Surtur.
While Thor: Love and Thunder doesn’t hit theaters until this summer, we have a sneak peak at what the new queen of Asgard is going to look like in the film. A new behind-the-scenes photo of Tessa Thompson on set recently made the rounds on social media, showcasing Valkyrie’s new armor.

It will definitely be interesting to see what twists and turns Thor’s story take in this next chapter.
Aside from Thor, the MCU has a ton of other great projects on deck for 2022. Those include Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Secret Invasion, and so many more.
Fans can also expect some big things from Sony’s Spider-Verse with films like Morbius and Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Part One also set for 2022. It’s certainly going to be one very big year for comic book movies.
