As the Asgardian God of Mischief, Loki usually likes to deal with his enemies indirectly, whether it's taking them off guard with his illusions or letting others do his dirty work. But when push comes to shove, Loki can handle himself reasonably well in a direct fight, and he'll have to rely on his combat prowess later this year in Thor: Ragnarok. One of the people he'll come to blows with is Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie, and while Valkyrie obviously has to keep her guard up when facing Loki, Thompson says that shooting this particular fight scene with Tom Hiddleston was a great experience. Thomson recalled:
In an photo provided exclusively to EW, Loki and Valkyrie are seen locked in a standoff with blades drawn. However, we don't need to worry about either combatant permanently injuring their opponent, as going off of Tessa Thompson's comment, this particular Thor: Ragnarok scene acted out like they're performing steps in a dance. When you throw in the one-liners, this could end up being one of the more humorous scenes in the God of Thunder's third movie.
Loki and Valkyrie will cross paths when Thor: Ragnarok takes the action to Sakaar, the Grandmaster-ruled planet where Thor and Hulk will do battle in the gladiator ring. Thompson also mentioned that although Valkyrie may appear to have more in common with Loki at first, the warrior will soon learn about his true nature. The Creed star continued:
Loki's first two appearances in the MCU placed him firmly in the antagonist category, but with Thor: The Dark World, he became a hesitant ally when Malekith's reign of terror resulted in the death of Loki's mother, Frigga. Despite appearing to collude with Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok (he's seen in the teaser trailer sitting with Jeff Goldblum's character as Thor and Hulk fight), Loki will once again help out Thor when they join forces with Valkyrie and Hulk to stop Hela, the Asgardian god of death, from triggering the apocalyptic Ragnarok event, which will destroy Asgardian civilization.
