FILM: Marvel to Get a Major LGBTQ Character (Finally)

Valkyrie

Valkyrie will be the first official LGBTQ superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, producer Kevin Feige has confirmed.

Following on from the studio’s trailblazing panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday 20 July, he told io9 that the character – who was appointed King of Asgard by her pal Thor at the end of Avengers: Endgame – will definitely have a queer storyline when she’s next seen on the big screen.

“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,” he added.

Feige was quizzed on whether Valkyrie’s bisexuality would be portrayed explicitly due to Thompson’s earlier comments during the announcement of upcoming sequel Thor: Love and Thunder.
