A scene in “Thor: Ragnarok” where a woman walks out of Valkyrie, Tessa Thompson’s, room, suggesting they had sex, was cut.
“There were things that we talked about that we allowed to exist in the characterization, but maybe not be explicit in the film,” Thompson told Rolling Stone. “There’s a great shot of me falling back from one of my sisters who’s just been slain. In my mind, that was my lover.”
She said in an interview with The Independent that the moment didn’t make sense with the rest of the scene. Thompson said she still played the Valkyrie as a queer woman, but she hopes to explore her bisexuality further.
“I hope that we get to a space, in terms of the stories that we tell, where that’s something that gets to exist, and it doesn’t have to be noteworthy.”
