Marvel Studios are going all guns blazing to promote their upcoming Avengers: Endgame that will release on April 26, also marking the culmination of The Infinity Saga. In the lead up to the film's release, on Tuesday, the makers unveiled 32 character posters for the new film, featuring the entire cast of the Marvel superhero franchise, ones that are assumed to be dead and otherwise. However, in a welcome surprise, the poster release has confirmed Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie’s involvement in the film.
Valkyrie debuted in Thor: Ragnarok and became an instant hit among the cinegoers. But with no sequel announced for the Thor franchise, her fate in the superhero film universe was left certain. Valkyrie was even entirely absent from Avengers: Infinity War and many fans were left wondering if and when Thompson would re-emerge in the MCU.
The uncertainty surrounding her role reprisal was further fueled by the fact that Valkyrie did not feature in any trailer or TV spots, which seemed carefully cut to keep all things secret. Moreover, her name was missing from the official posters as well.
But the new poster release has confirmed Tessa's character’s involvement in Avengers: Endgame, for the first time. Her poster was also revealed in colour, as opposed to the ones who are believed-to-be dead and are kept in a tint of monochrome. Tessa shared her character poster in an Instagram post and wrote, "One Month. #AvengersEndgame."
With Captain Marvel and Valkyrie joining their line-up, do Avengers stand a chance against Thanos? Directed by Russo Brothers, Avengers: Endgame will hit the screens on April 26 globally.
