There are some very strong women in Thor The Dark World like Jane Foster Lady Sif and Frigga. But one strong female character that almost made it into the film is Brunhilde the Valkyrie. Concept art from Josh Nizzi's website shows what she could have looked like.
He also shared some designs for a Frost Giant, Durok the Demolisher, Mangog and others.
Josh Nizzi is a professional concept artist who's worked on Hollywood films like Transformers: Rise of the Fallen (2011) The Wolverine (2013) and The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
For those not familiar with the character of Valkyrie here's what Wikipedia says:
The character first appeared in The Avengers #83 (December 1970) and has become a mainstay of the superhero team known as the Defenders. An Asgardian by birth, Valkyrie, also known by her real name Brunnhilde, was selected by Odin to lead the Valkyrior. Among her other aliases are Barbara Denton-Norriss, Samantha Parrington, Sian Bowen, and Annabelle Riggs who all were host bodies to the spirit of Brunnhilde. Samantha Parrington, a previous host of Brunnhilde, later received Valkyrie's powers and became a member of the Defenders herself. An ally and one-time love interest of Thor, she was ranked 65th in Comics Buyer's Guide's "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list. - Wikipedia
