Tessa Thompson Thor: Ragnarok Character Unveiled Has Fifth Member Of Marvel's Exiles Series.

Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie character from Thor: Ragnarok has been unveiled has the fifth team member of the new Exiles comic book series from writer Saladin Ahmed andartist Javier Rodriguez. Valkyrie will be pretty close to Thor: Ragnarok Character.






“Valkyrie's a character who's always appealed to me. Her iconic warrior-woman look - spear! sword! flying horse! - but also the juxtaposition of a kickass ancient fantasy hero operating in contemporary New York City. She's a classic Marvel heroine,” said Ahmed. “But the Exiles version of Valkyrie is a bit different from what we've seen in comics thus far. Our Valkyrie is known as the Lone Defender of Asgard, and she's a tankard-draining, maiden-wooing, giant-slaying thunderbolt of a woman. Though she's not technically from the Marvel Cinematic Universe reality, she's basically the literalization of the larger-than-her-physical-frame swagger that Tessa Thompson displayed in Thor: Ragnarok, turned up to 11.”

“Like everyone else who has seen Taika Waititi’s brilliant Thor: Ragnarok movie, all of us on Team Exiles are big fans of Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie,” added series editor Wil Moss. “So when we realized that we had the perfect series - where the roster is made up of alternate reality versions of Marvel heroes - to introduce a comic book equivalent of that version of Valkyrie, we jumped at the chance! And how great is series artist Javier Rodriguez’s design? Such a nice combo of the classic Valkyrie look and the MCU’s, yeah?”






Marvel's Exiles will launch April 11, and will see the return of Blink, Nick Fury as the Unseen, Iron Lad of the Young Avengers, a future version of Kamala Khan, a chibi-style cartoon version of Wolverine, and Valkyrie.

“Exiles is a two-fisted, big-hearted wild ride of a book about a diverse team of alternate universe Marvel heroes banding together to stop a dire threat to the multiverse. Sort of What If? meets classic X-Men,” said Ahmed in a statement. “Grizzled old Kamala Khan! Disgustingly cute cartoon Wolverine! It’s a dream of a book to be working on for a Marvel fanboy such as myself, full of deep-cut guest stars and mind-blowing easter eggs. But it’s also new-reader friendly - a self-contained story of a group of misfits coming together, learning to trust each other, and, if they’re lucky, saving the !@$# universe.”
