Was watching Avengers: Endgame one more time and noticed that Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) wasn't present at the funeral at the end.

This answer lists all the people who attended the funeral including that kid from Iron Man 3. So it looked strange to me that Tessa wasn't a part of it.

Valkyrie has decent amount of screen time in the movie & also has a scene after the funeral where Thor makes her the leader of Asagardians.

So, why wasn't she part of the funeral? Any comment from Russo Brothers or Tessa Thompson?

  • It's possible that Valkyrie is busy now in Asgard (on Earth)

Because she didn't know Tony Stark

....she never met him.

While it could be argued that she might have attended to honor a fallen hero of the final battle, Valkyrie has never met Tony Stark before and certainly couldn't be considered a close friend.

Thor certainly attended as friend of Tony and representative of (New) Asgard but she wasn't made ruler of Asgard until after the funeral / memorial but this seemed to be only for people who knew and/or were friends of Tony.

  • Hmm. Fair point. But Hank & his wife & the Wasp was also there at the funeral. They didn't know Tony. In fact they had Michelle Pfeiffer just in this one scene Commented May 19, 2019 at 12:31
  • True but Scott Lang did know Tony so it's logical that they would attend with him.

    Also, Hank Pym probably knew Howard Stark so he was attending the funeral of his friend's son, that's not weird. Commented May 19, 2019 at 21:17
