Thor: Love And Thunder Teases MCU’s First Queer Storyline
There has been none to slim discussions about Queer or LGBTQ+ characters in MCU films. However, it can change soon in Thor: Love and Thunder. The upcoming movie is giving hints on an LGBTQ+ character, which will make it MCU’s firsts. Many of the MCU characters, like Loki, Korg, and Captain Marvel have a history of LGBTQ+ identity in the comic book. But, digitally, there has been none.
Supposedly the Love in the title refers to Valkyrie. She will be looking for her queen in the MCU sequel of Thor: Ragnarok. Valkyrie is a superheroine in the Marvel Comic Books. The character is based on Norse mythology, and she is also titled “King of New Asgard.”
She has previously appeared in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, and Thor: Tales Of Asgard. Although she is tough and strong, Valkyrie definitely needs a person to support her. And this time, she is looking for her queen.
Apparently, after a lot of study into the film, we have learned that Angela, an Asgardian refugee, will develop romantic feelings for Valkyrie. At the moment, there are no details on who will play Angela in the film. But, rumors claim that Jodie Comer is assigned to fill the spot.
Tessa Thompson who plays Valkyrie said in an interview that she always played Valkyrie as a bisexual character. She knew that Valkyrie is bisexual in the books. Thus, she brought that energy into her character.
The film has finished shooting according to the updates from the lead star of the movie. So, we hope to get more news on other characters and the storyline.
Thor’s Love Interest- Jane Foster or Sif? Who Will It Be
Over the span of his existence, Thor had been only in two serious relationships. One is with Jane Foster and the other, Sif. In the upcoming sequel, both of his love interests will appear, and the major question is Who will he choose? What will be the endgame? Thor and Jane OR Thor and Sif.
Another meaning of “Love” in the title suggests that thor will be settling with his love in the film this time. The God Of Thunder has dated Jane Foster in the past in MCU. Sadly, they were separated by the time of Thor: Ragnarok. After that, Thor’s father, Odin, encouraged him to go further in his relationship with Sif in Thor: The Dark World.
“Thor: Love and Thunder” is all set to make its grand premiere on May 6, 2022, as a part of Phase Four of MCU. The movie will star Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), Sif (Jaime Alexander), and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), and more.
