    This is basically confirmation that Zeus isn't making it out of this movie alive. Because there's no way I could see him giving his weapon away to someone he probably views as a lesser god.

    Also, the lightning bolt is probably what will give Val those extra powers we've heard about, effectively turning her into a third thunder god alongside Thor and Jane.

    Turning Valkyrie into a third thunder god is not something I would like to see, but I did enjoy seeing her wield Zeus's lightning bolt.

    I was thinking the same thing, reminds me of superhero movie tie in commercials of the 2000's.

    I can't say with any certainty, but I get the sense a good chunk of Valkyrie's character arc got left on the cutting room floor.

    Definitely felt like they wanted to make sure this one came under 2 hours.

    Not the worst thing because this is clearly meant to be Thor and Jane's story, but something felt a bit off about Valkyrie's scenes.

    She looked absolutely bored in this movie. But maybe that was the character arc? Not really sure. It’s like they wanted a story about her not really wanting to be king and instead back in the action. But it didn’t seem to go anywhere and she disappeared after the shadow realm fight.

    I would pay good money to have Tessa kick the sh*t out of me.

    Liked what we got of her. Thompson continues to be outstanding in the role. You could tell a lot of her content got left on the cutting room floor. I'm sure it didn't help that her and Taika were pushing for her to "find a queen" in this movie, which the suits certainly shut down fast.

    The more I think about it, the more I wish that we got some Darcy/Valkyrie interactions. They seem like they'd have great chemistry. And hey, if we ever get the queen plot greenlit, there's a reason for her to stay relevant. Darcy being Bi would be the least surprising character development possible.
