Marvel Comics launches ‘King in Black: Return of the Valkyries’ trailer

Return of the Valkyries will feature Jane Foster, Dani Moonstar, Hildegarde, and a brand-new Valkyrie with a startling origin.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has launched a new trailer featuring Valkyrie taking flight for the upcoming King in Black tie-in King in Black: Return of the Valkyries. Written by Jason Aaron and Torunn Grønbekk with art by Nina Vakueva, this brand-new series will star Jane Foster, Dani Moonstar, Hildegarde, and a brand-new Valkyrie with a startling origin. The characters are set to ride against Knull in the upcoming event. Jane Foster originally appeared in her own series Valkyrie back in July 2019.

“The Valkyries – these powerful women who navigate both the spaces of the living and the dead – are inherently interesting to me,” says co-writer Torunn Grønbekk in a press release sent to AIPT.  “The role demands a perspective on life and battle that is quite unique; they see the whole picture, always, and when you combine that with the great humanity you find in characters like Jane Foster and Dani Moonstar, you get something really special. It takes courage to see the world through the eyes of a Valkyrie (especially when that world is under attack by Knull!), and that makes for complex and exciting stories of the kind I want to tell.”
