Tessa Thompson’s character Valkyrie will be the first LGBT superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the 2021 film, “Thor: Love and Thunder.”

Thompson has said in the past that her character is bisexual, but at the San Diego Comic Con on Saturday, she said that in the next film, Valkyrie, who was crowned king of Asgard, “needs to find her queen,” according to International Business Times. President of Marvel Kevin Feige even confirmed Valkyrie is LGBT in an interview with Collider:

“Yes that’s the case, and will be the case not just with [Valkyrie] but with other characters in some of the movies we talked about today,” he said.

Feige said along with Valkyrie being the first bisexual superhero, there will also be an LGBT character in the 2020 film, “The Eternals.”
