Last April, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi participated in a surprise live-stream where he shared concept art for Thor: Love and Thunder , showing off New Asgard and a new look at Miek . What surprised fans most was seeing Miek with a far more feminine-looking exoskeleton than was seen in Thor: Ragnarok .

Filming for Love and Thunder is well underway with set photos revealing Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and more , along with showing off a new reenactment in line with the fake play that was seen in Ragnarok . The newest photos have shown giant goats, Valkyrie actress Tessa Thompson, and Miek.

Many fans noticed that one crew member was carrying a prop of Miek without their exoskeleton, but other fans saw that it was, in fact, likely standing just a few feet away from them.


As pointed out in these set photos, a crew member can be seen holding what looks like a prop of Miek, but one Twitter user, @Marvel_TH , pointed out the woman standing just to the right could be acting as Miek's stand-in and the little alien's new exoskeleton:

Looking closer, one can see the woman holding something blue in her right hand, which is likely her blue mask that she's removed in-between takes. When worn, her head would be replaced by CGI with Miek's buggy little head. The Miek prop being carried around by that crew member is likely just being used as a point of reference for CGI artists.


Aside from Miek's new concept art that showed them using a far more feminine exoskeleton and wearing a professional-looking skirt, something else that stood out was Miek holding a clipboard.

Additionally, these set photos also seem to indicate that Miek and Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie may be working closely together. So, it's possible that Miek began acting as Valkyrie's secretary ever since Chris Hemsworth's Thor made her King of New Asgard at the end of Avengers: Endgame . What seems to be happening is that Valkyrie and Miek will arrive at the stage play together using Toothgnasher or Toothgrinder.

It will be interesting to see how Miek will interact with Valkyrie and what kind of dynamic they will have, especially with Miek potentially being her secretary.

Thor: Love and Thunder is currently scheduled to release in theaters on May 6, 2022 .
