Thor: Ragnarok’s Thompson Clarifies Her Comment on Valkyrie’s Bisexuality

Thor: Ragnarok‘s Valkyrie may be bisexual, but you probably won’t see that on the big screen. Tessa Thompson, who plays the battle-hardened warrior, took to Twitter to explain that “her sexuality isn’t explicitly addressed” in the movie, even though she played the character as bisexual.

Thompson revealed that her version of Valkyrie is bisexual with a Twitter post just last week. “She’s bi. And yes, she cares very little about what men think of her. What a joy to play!” she wrote. However, at the time, it wasn’t clear if that would be made explicit in the movie. Per Thompson’s latest comment, Valkyrie’s sexuality will not be shown.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has previously said he expected the introduction of an LGBT character by 2025, and, more recently, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer/director James Gunn suggested they might already exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“You know, somebody asked me, ‘Will there be any gay characters in Marvel movies?’ and what I meant was there’s a lot of characters in the MCU and very few of them that we’ve delved into what their sexuality is,” he said in May. “Whether it’s gay or straight or bisexual, we don’t really know. Um, so I imagine that there are probably, you know, gay characters in the Marvel universe, you know, we just don’t know who they are yet.”

Arriving November 3, director Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
