Rumours about the fate of Valkyrie, Tessa Thompson's hard-drinking, hard-fighting Asgardian from Thor: Ragnarok, have been floating around since her absence in Avengers: Infinity War. Now, Thompson herself has confirmed on Twitter that Valkyrie is alive, and well, and probably ready to kick your arse.

Few Marvel films have reimagined a character as radically as Thor: Ragnarok. Director Taika Waititi took the things fans already loved about the character, filtered them through a new visual palette and added more jokes than almost any other Marvel movie. The result is probably one of the most rewatchable films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
When Alex Garland's Annihilation opens, it will be the end of a long journey for the film. It began way back in 2013 when Paramount bought the movie rights to Jeff VanderMeer's book and its sequels, before they were even published. We have been covering Annihilation since the very beginning, and we thought it might be fun to take a trip down memory lane.
Alex Garland's Annihilation has just about everything a moviegoer could want. It has an incredibly compelling mystery at its heart, it's filled with nuanced performances by amazing actors, and it looks unbelievably fantastic. Most importantly, like the best science fiction, it challenges you and makes you think. Annihilation has all this - and yet it comes just shy of reaching true transcendence.
For those who haven't read the books, Annihilation's trailers have been shrouded in mystery. What is "The Shimmer," what is it doing, and perhaps most importantly, how big of a threat does it pose? A new featurette from Paramount dives a bit more into what this strange anomaly is and the effect it's having on our world.
Everything we've seen from Thor: Ragnarok has blown us away. Bright, fun, Marvel movies have become the norm but, somehow, this has looked different. The trailers and clips have been trippy, manic, and hilarious. Plus, with each new look, they have only gotten weirder. Could the film actually live up to that insanity and our growing expectations? Well, the first reactions from the film have begun rolling in and it sounds like it does.
So it looks like Marvel has decided it's Thor: Ragnarok Thursday. Earlier, Entertainment Weekly posted our first look at the film, and now they have revealed even more photos, including the much, much anticipated first look at Jeff Goldblum's cosmic lover of competition, the Grandmaster.
