CREED’s Tessa Thompson Joins THOR: RAGNAROK

Hell yeah.

Hey, look, more Marvel news with ties to Creed: Tessa Thompson has joined Thor: Ragnarok.

Right now there's no indication what character Thompson will be playing (it's just being called a "key role"), but - as pointed out by the Hollywood Reporter - Natalie Portman's not returning for a third at-bat as Jane Foster, so it's possible Thompson will be playing the female lead. 

Just about everyone else is returning to the Thor fold. Chris Hemsworth, Jamie Alexander, and Tom Hiddleston are all back onboard, and this time they'll be joined by Cate Blanchett and Mark Ruffalo's Hulk.

Y'know, between the cast, the rumors we've heard about Thor: Ragnarok being sort of a "Universal road movie", and the fact that the great Taika Waititi is directing, I'm actually starting to get pretty pumped about another Thor movie. 

How 'bout you guys?
