Actress Tessa Thompson, who portrayed the character of Asgardian warrior Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, would want Creed II director Steven Caple Jr. to helm Valkryie’s solo movie if it ever gets made.
According to Trailer Track’s Anton Volkov, during a recent screening and Q&A session with the Creed II cast and crew at BFI Southbank in London, Thompson called out Caple Jr. directly asking him to direct the Valkyrie movie. The statement came when Caple Jr. was asked about the potential to direct Creed lll and follow in the footsteps of Ryan Coogler by making a jump to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Tessa Thompson to Steven Caple Jr. at Q&A just now: “direct the Valkyrie movie”,” Volkov’s tweet read.
Caple Jr’s response to the question remained unknown. Notably, Coogler, who directed the original Creed film, teamed up with actor Michael B. Jordan again for his Marvel Studios debut Black Panther, which went on to gross over $1 billion at the box office. Thompson also made a jump to Marvel movies with Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Ragnarok. The film studio has not yet announced any firm plans for a Valkyrie movie.
Thompson is likely to reprise the role of Valkyrie in the upcoming Avengers 4 movie. The actress has already confirmed that her character has survived Thanos’ snap in Avengers: Infinity War. When a fan asked Thompson on Twitter whether or not Valkyrie had disintegrated, she replied saying Valkyrie is fine and “thriving.”
The Creed actress was reportedly spotted on Avengers 4 set in Edinburgh back in May last year. She also headed to Atlanta for a couple of days back in September, coincidentally at the same time when Chris Hemsworth was in the city for the reshoots.
Avengers 4 is set to release on May 3rd, 2019. The film’s first trailer is expected to roll out by the end of 2018.
