Actress Tessa Thompson looks set to join the cast of Thor: Ragnarok in a leading role. There’s currently no word on who the actress will play, though Valkyrie has to be at least one fairly strong possibility.
Before appearing as a love interest in that Rocky sequel, Thompson made her presence felt in Selma and Indy movie Dear White People. She also recently joined HBO’s Westworld.
Cate Blanchett has been cast in an undisclosed role, while Mark Ruffalo is set to take on a leading part as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, making this release a team-up movie of sorts.
Thor: Ragnarok is currently set to be released on November 3rd, next year, so stay tuned!
