In the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, surprises seem to lurk around every corner. The latest teaser for The Marvels has given fans quite the revelation, hinting at a possible crossover with characters from the Thor universe. With whispers about Valkyrie’s return and a potential romance in the air, here’s what we’ve unraveled so far.
Is Valkyrie joining Captain Marvel?
The fresh teaser for The Marvels, set to grace our screens on November 10, has sparked a whirlwind of speculations. In the snippet, Captain Marvel, played by the talented Brie Larson, mentions she “called a friend.” Immediately after, we see Thor’s Bifrost beaming onto Carol Danvers’ new spaceship, The Hoopty. This appearance isn’t just a decorative cinematic effect; it’s a significant nod to Thor’s world.
Earlier rumors had suggested Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie might join forces with Captain Marvel. With the threat posed by the new Kree villain, Dar-Benn, whose aim is vengeance against Captain Marvel for past defeats, it makes sense for Captain Marvel to call in reinforcements. After all, they’ve battled side by side before, notably in Avengers: Endgame.
A brewing romance in the MCU?
MCU fans are not just action aficionados; they love a good character story, and romance is often at its core. There have been whispers about a possible romantic storyline between Captain Marvel and Valkyrie. Tessa Thompson commented on this possibility in July 2022, highlighting Valkyrie’s single status and hinting at the potential for romance with other characters within the MCU, including Captain Marvel.

Considering Marvel’s historical hesitance to delve into LGBTQ+ storylines, if this romance does unfold on screen, it’ll be a welcome surprise. Many fans have shown support for such a development, eager to see a deeper connection between the two powerful characters. After all, as Tessa Thompson said, “The heart wants what it wants.”
Could Thor be in The Marvels?
The possibility of Thor appearing in The Marvels is something that fans have been speculating about ever since the teaser’s release. With Captain Marvel’s direct reference to having “called a friend” and the unmistakable appearance of Thor’s Bifrost shortly after, the breadcrumbs seem to be leading to a Thor universe crossover.
While Valkyrie’s involvement seems more hinted at, one can’t help but wonder if the God of Thunder himself might make an appearance, even if it’s a brief one. Remember, Captain Marvel and Thor have shared screen time in Avengers: Endgame, and their dynamic was memorable.
Whether it’s a cameo or a significant role, any involvement of Thor in The Marvels would undoubtedly amplify the excitement for the film’s release. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope the MCU has more surprises in store for us.
