Good news for fans of Thessa Thompson. A new series ofÂ promotional photos for the upcoming Avengers: EndgameÂ confirm that her character Valkyrie survived Thanosâ€™ snap at the end of Infinity War,Â andÂ will be appearing in the blockbuster.
Fans had long speculated whether the beloved Thor: RagnarokÂ character would appear in the film, released next month. Todayâ€™s release of two different types of posters for the film â€“ colour for alive characters, black and white for dead and snapped characters â€“ showÂ Valkyrie in colour, confirming her role in the film.
Other confirmed survivors and appearances include Gwenyth Paltrowâ€™s Pepper Potts andÂ Jon Favreauâ€™s Happy Hogan. Unfortunately, the posters also revealed thatÂ Letitia Wrightâ€™s Shuri did not survive the snap. Many fans mourned the news.
The posters mark one of the final teases before the release of Endgame, which many believeÂ will bring an end to an era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and see the departure of several of the franchiseâ€™s big names.Â
In an interview last month, Paltrow said that Endgame will be her last Marvel outing, telling Variety,Â â€œI mean, Iâ€™m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point.â€
Thompson will be joined by Avengers veteransÂ Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Scarlett Johansson in the April release. The film also promises to show the first interaction between the core Marvel cast and the recently added Captain Marvel â€“ portrayed by Brie Larson.
This week Marvel also released the filmâ€™s official synopsis, which promises a â€œgrand conclusionâ€ to theÂ precedingÂ 22 films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
