‘Infinity War’ Director Confirms Valkyrie’s Fate

He revealed the fate of Valkyrie, the Asgardians and other SPOILERS during a high-school Q&A.

When you have a movie with as many moving parts as Avengers: Infinity War, there will always be some loose threads lying around. While the film featured an unprecedented number of superheroes, there were noticeable absences. Where were the missing heroes?

Hawkeye and Ant-Man were evidently under “house arrest.” But no one even mentioned fan-favorite Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson in Thor: Ragnarok.

More distressingly,Thanos killed Loki and Heimdall and dozens of others before ripping the Asgardians ship apart in the opening scene, leaving Thor as the only survivor…

…or so it seemed.

Reddit users MaxPiper4 and Anewthrowaway_quest revealed that Infinity War director Joe Russo came to their school for a Q&A, and gave everyone a little more information about the events in the movie.

He confirmed that many Asgardians had managed to make it to escape pods, so Thor’s people live yet. More importantly, he confirmed that fan-favorite Valkyrie was one of the survivors.

Other tidbits revealed in the Q&A:

  • Tom Holland improvised his dramatic death scene at the end of the film;
  • He heavily hinted that Dr. Strange gave Thanos the Time Stone because “it was the only way” to achieve victory;
  • The title of Avengers 4 will not be released anytime soon;
  • He refused to confirm that Korg was still alive; and
  • The attack on Xandar was done off-screen to save time and to avoid repetition.

Earlier in the week, Tessa Thompson had her own explanation as to where Valkyrie was during the action. She had turned into a goat being cared for by Bucky Barnes in Wakanda.

This was a reference to the wonderfully absurd @tessasgoats Twitter account, which finds and tweets photos of goats that look like the talented actress.

Russo Brothers Accidentally Reveal Captain Marvel in Avengers: Infinity War

It looks like Captain Marvel will appear in Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1 — before her solo movie hits theaters a year later.

Infinity War directors the Russo Brothers were speaking at the Smithsonian and running through the list of characters in the movie, when one of them blurted out the name “Captain Marvel.” A fan in the crowd pounced and asked, “Did you just confirm Captain Marvel?”

Russo replied, “”Um….Captain Barvel. Totally different character.”

So there you have it. Either Carol Danvers will be joining the Avengers in Infinity  War, Part 1, or the House of Ideas is ready to introduce the exciting new character, “Captain Barvel.” We’re betting on the former.
