First of all, as king, as new king [of Asgard], she needs to find her queen. That will be the first order of business."Valkyrie, however, isn't the first LGBTQ character of Marvel Studios". She has some ideas.

Thompson confirmed Valkyrie's sexuality in a tweet, just ahead of her debut in 2017's Thor: Ragnarok: 'She's bi.

"The answer is yes".

The announcement was made at Sand Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, as Portman stood beside returning director Taika Waititi and star Chris Hemsworth.

"Thor: Love and Thunder" is set to premiere November 5, 2021.

Kevin Feige has promised fans that an openly queer superhero is on its way.

Natalie Portman will play a female version of Thor in the upcoming "Thor: Love and Thunder". I can't wait to see @TaikaWaititi & Natalie Portman bring the Goddess of Thunder to life. Of course, Marvel and their parent company Disney have talked in the past about adding such LGBTQ moments and characters to films before, only to see many of them fall far short of what was promised in publicity interviews. At the SDCC, while addressing to io9, Feige himself said that Thor: Love and Thunder will feature Valkyrie's hint for love, she is the new ruler of Asgard, and those amongst the surviving refugees of Earth's New Asgard. Jason Aaron wrote the story and was widely praised because he did not reveal that the Mighty Lady Thor was Foster until the end of the run.

Avengers: Endgame was a huge hit for Marvel, and Feige announced at the panel that it had officially passed James Cameron's 2009 hit Avatar as the highest grossing film of all time.
