Tessa Thompson teases her LGBTQ character from Thor movie

Washington DC: During Comic-Con 2019, actor Tessa Thompson, who will be playing the role of Valkyrie in the fourth Thor movie titled 'Thor'.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor who will be playing the first LGBTQ superhero in the flick jokingly said, "As a new king [of Asgard], she [Valkyrie] needs to find her queen. That will be the first order of business."

Valkyrie, however, isn't the first LGBTQ character of Marvel Studios. It was director duo Russo Brothers who cast the studio's first openly gay character in 'Avengers: Endgame' played by its co-director Joe Russo.

"We've done four of these films and it was incredibly important to us to have a gay character represented somewhere in one of these four movies. We felt so strongly about it that I wanted to play that character in the film," Joe Russo told The Hollywood Reporter ahead of Endgame's release.

'Thor: Love and Thunder' which is set to hit theatres on November 5, 2021, will also star Chris Hemsworth as the Norse god and Natalie Portman as female Thor.
