Tessa Thompson is seriously bad ass in Thor Ragnarok. Not only does she have some epic fight scenes in the blockbuster film, she has a wardrobe and look that is stunning. I got the chance to sit down with Tessa in an exclusive press conference for the third installment in the Marvel Thor cinematic universe and learned that she is just as bad ass in person.
Tessa revealed that she lead a group of women to Marvel Studios President and Thor Ragnarok Producer Kevin Feige’s office one day. They had one question on their mind. “How about an all-female Avengers movie?” was the question they posed.
And you know what Kevin Feige actually said yes.
Tessa – who plays Valkyrie in the movie – revealed more about the encounter she had with Feige.
“Recently, I marched up with a couple of other women that work in Marvel and we went to Kevin, ‘What about a movie with some female super heroes?'” she said . “‘Like all of them?’
“There’s a precedent for it in the comics, right? With teams like Lady Liberators?”
The Lady Liberators are an all-female superhero team quietly put together by the Enchantress that includes Wasp, Black Widow and Scarlet Witch.
“It just so happens that all these characters exist within the modern day MCU – so how about it Kevin?”
Kevin Feige stopped to take the moment in and replied. “It was a pretty amazing moment to be somewhere and have your shoulder get tapped and turn around and see that every female hero we have is standing there going, ‘How about it?'”
“And I said, ‘Yes.'”
And we say, bring it on!
