Valkyrie’s new fit includes a black and white thread throughout her armor and impressive braids with part of her head shaved. Like Thor (and Loki), the Marvel character moves onto brighter horizons and a better tomorrow. That is, of course, until Christain Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher messes everything up.

More about Thor: Love and Thunder

While there’s little information about Thor: Love and Thunder, Marvel executive Andy Park jokingly revealed that director Taika Waititi “shouldn’t be allowed to make a movie like this”:

“You’ll be surprised and push these characters and the visuals go along with that. I think Taika said it in some interview where he’s just like, he’s surprised that he’s even, he shouldn’t be allowed to make a movie like this. And I get it,” he added. “This movie is crazy wild. It’s so much fun. And I simply cannot wait for everyone to see it. Because it was so much fun to work on and design so many characters and do keyframes for. It’s going to be a good one. It’s going to be fun.”
