Tessa Thompson will reprise her role as Valkyrie in the upcoming THOR, Thor: Love and Thunder and break ground when it comes to representation.
The news was announced at Comic-Con over the weekend with the actress confirming that her character will be looking for her Queen in the upcoming installment of the Thor franchise.
According to reports, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that Valkyrie will be involved in an LGBTQ storyline after Saturday’s panel.
The news of Valkyrie’s sexuality is not new, but hints of her orientation were left out of the first Marvel flick she appeared in, Thor: Ragnarok. The announcement is a step in the right direction when it comes to representation in the comic space, and the world is certainly ready for a major LGBTQ hero.
