Amazingly enough, Headey is reportedly being sued for her cut role in Thor: Love and Thunder — something the actress had no control over.

The 300 (2006) actress has not yet issued an official statement regarding this current financial matter, but various reports suggest that Headey didn’t even use Troika/YMU as an exclusive agency.

While Headey’s Marvel role is unknown, it’s possible that the actress could reappear in the Marvel Universe and add herself to the Marvel Collection in the near future once this legal matter with Troika clears for the 9 Bullets (2022) actress.

More about Thor: Love and Thunder

The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey, unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
