First bi in a Marvel film?
The relentless run of Marvel comics stories being turned into films continues, and Valkyrie in the imminent Thor: Ragnarok film is bisexual – though there’s a small spoiler from the film itself that her sexuality is not made clear on screen.
Either way, so far we only have the actress’ word for it thanks to a tweet: replying to a tweet that Valykrie was a “big ole lesbian” in the comics, Tessa Thompson answered starting with the short correction, “she’s bi.”
She’s bi. And yes, she cares very little about what men think of her. What a joy to play! https://t.co/d0LZKTHCfL

The film comes out on October 27th.
Edit to add:
The film is out and, sure enough, even when people with strong bi-fi watch it there is nothing in the film to signal to the unaware viewer that Valkyrie is bi.
