Eva Green, Katie McGrath, Emilia Clarke, Bridget Regan, Gemma Arterton, Rosamund Pike, Keira Knightley, Natalie Portman and Miranda Otto as the nine Valkyries.

A valkyrie is one of a host of female figures who decide which soldiers die in battle and which live. Selecting among half of those who die in battle, the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin. When the einherjar are not preparing for the events of Ragnarök, the valkyries bear them mead. Valkyries also appear as lovers of heroes and other mortals, where they are sometimes described as the daughters of royalty, sometimes accompanied by ravens, and sometimes connected to swans or horses.
