"Odin, I bid you take your place in the halls of Valhalla...Where the brave shall live forever. Nor shall we mourn but rejoice for those that have died the glorious death."
Thor[src]

Valhalla is a place of splendor in the Asgardian afterlife.

History

This section needs a rewrite
"The delicacies so succulent you thought you had died and gone to Valhalla!"
Thor to Volstagg[src]

The Asgardians believe after death they will be resurrected in Valhalla and subjected to paradise that would not normally be available to them within the Nine Realms.

When reminding his friends of their many adventures, Volstagg gloats of experiencing delicacies so succulent he thought he had died and gone to Valhalla.[1] After Odin's death, Thor wishes him joy now resting in the halls of Valhalla.[2]

Trivia

  • In Norse mythology, Valhalla is a majestic, enormous hall ruled by Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those who die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led by Valkyries, while the other half go to the goddess Freyja's field Fólkvangr. In Valhalla, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat known as Einherjar.

Behind the Scenes

  • A preliminary idea for Thor: Ragnarok had the story taking place mostly in Valhalla instead of Asgard. However, as Taika Waititi recalls, the idea "only lasted a couple of weeks".[3]
