A new lawsuit filed by UK talent agency YMU against Lena Headey has revealed that the Game of Thrones and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles actress was cast and then cut from the upcoming Marvel Studios film, Thor: Love and Thunder.
According to CBR, YMU (formerly known as Troika) and the former representative of Headey “is seeking an account of commission fees owed, an order for Headey to pay the fees, damages for breach of contract, interest, and reimbursement of legal fees. Headey claims that she never signed any contract with Troika or with Duff, and that both parties were acting on an oral agreement. She also pointed out that Troika was never her sole agent. CAA represents the actor in the United States.“
It is currently unknown what role Headey was intended to play in Thor: Love and Thunder or if she will make her Marvel Studios debut in a future title, but we do know the actress was approached by Director Taika Waititi himself, leading us to believe there are big plans in store for her mysterious character.
