It is official! Valkyrie will be Marvel’s first LGBTQ superhero in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder! The movie is centered around the superhero Thor who is played by Chris Hemsworth.

Tessa Thompson, who is an openly bisexual, plays Valkyrie in the films. Valkyrie is bisexual in the comic book which Thompson has informed and mentioned before.

Thompson teased, “As new king, she needs to find her queen. That will be her first order of business. She has some ideas. Keep you posted.”

Marvel Studios head and producer Kevin Feige confirmed Valkyrie will have a "queer relationship." He states, "The answer is yes. How that impacts the story remains to be seen with that level of representation you’ll see across our films, not in just Thor 4."

Next Jeneration is looking forward to the fourth Marvel movie Thor: Love and Thunder and interested to see Thompson’s character find her queen. Let us know what you think!
