“Here we go!”

At San Diego Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel dropped an updated trailer for “Thor: Ragnarok.” Back when the first trailer for the film released, we were excited that at the inclusion of another Afro-Latina in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thompson, whose father is of Panamanian descent and mother is of Mexican and European descent, will be playing Valkyrie, a historically white character in Marvel comics.

Gina Rodriguez supported her friend on social media, posting the photo of Thompson in character up on Twitter.

Earlier, Rodriguez had posted that Marvel needed to do a better job of including Latinos.

Director Ava Duvernay (“Selma,” “13th”) couldn’t hide her excitement.

Humbled by the kind words, Thompson replied to DuVernay:

From the trailers released, it appears Thompson plays an even bigger role than we thought.

In the original trailer, she appeared to be a bounty hunter, capturing Thor and selling him off. But with new cool armor, a glowing pair of swords, a giant gun, Thompson is looking more and more like the goddess who will save Asgard. I mean, look at her going to war on the back of a pegasus.

Check out the full trailer below, which racked up an incredible 20 million views in just one weekend.

Oh, and Loki, Thor and Hulk are there, too…

Halle Berry Was On "Despierta America" Dancing To 'Despacito' With A Balloon Between Her And A Very Excited Alan Tacher


Halle Berry Was On “Despierta America” Dancing To ‘Despacito’ With A Balloon Between Her And A Very Excited Alan Tacher

Academy award-winning actress Halle Berry was on Univision’s “Despierta America” to discuss her new film, “Kidnap.”

But, somehow, she got wrangled into a balloon dance-off set to “Despacito.”

The real winner in this balloon competition? Mexican host Alan Tacher, who was clearly excited to give Berry a big squeeze.

It’s not every day you get to dance with (and hug) an A-list star.

During the interview, Berry also shouted out one of her favorite writers, poet Just Mike, who promptly posted the video on his Instagram.


That’s right, Halle, don’t be letting these boys play games with you. No more Eric Benets up in here.

No stranger to the show, Berry was there a few years back making tacos with the whole team.

It seems like food is always part of the interview whenever Berry is around.

I think they’re trying to give her the abuela guilt trip, “mija, tu estas bien flaquita, tienes que comer mas, mi niña.”

Here’s the trailer for Berry’s upcoming film “Kidnap,” which wasn’t really discussed in depth, due to all that balloon dancing.

“Kidnap” is out in theaters August 4th.
