Tessa Thompson Wants 'Creed II' Director Steven Caple Jr. to Direct Valkyrie Movie

Fans aren’t alone in theorizing spinoff movies. Apparently the film's actors participate in this activity, too.

Marvel has yet to announce any future plans featuring Thor’s new ally Valkyrie, but actor Tessa Thompson has already pointed out who she would like to direct a potential spinoff movie, according to Comic Book.

Thompson, who plays Valkyrie in the 2017 Thor: Ragnarok, called out Steven Caple Jr., with whom she worked with while filming Creed II.

At a recent screening and Q&A with the cast and crew of Creed II, Caple Jr. was asked about the possibility of him joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Thompson, speaking directly to Caple Jr., told him to “direct the Valkyrie movie,” according to Trailer Track’s Anton Volkov.

While there have been no plans of a Valkyrie movie, Thompson is hopeful that it will happen.

"There's an interest - they're doing Captain Marvel, they're doing a Black Widow - there's an interest in having women at the forefront of this phase. I feel like it's hopeful, who knows," Thompson said in an interview with IGN earlier this year.

She continued, "I'm not Marvel so I can't make it happen, but I can tell you that Marvel is hugely collaborative...I think Kevin Feige is really excited by the idea, and if you look at what's happened already in Phase 4 with me and Valkyrie and our story, and then in Black Panther the women rule supreme."

Who knows if Thompson and Caple Jr. will be teaming up in the future. For now, we can all enjoy their latest project, Creed II, which just hit theaters last week.
