Light spoilers ahead for Thor: Love and Thunder…As predicted, Thor: Love and Thunder is truly “the gayest Marvel movie yet” (and not just because of Chris Hemsworth’s divinely bare bottom).The fourth Thor film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe finds the titular God of Thunder tracking down a killer while teamed up with his rock-warrior pal, Korg; the female Asgardian warrior, Valkyrie (played by out actress Tessa Thompson); and Thor’s ex-girlfriend, a physicist-turned-superhero named Jane Foster (played by Natalie Portman).The film has several queer moments, though nothing as major as a same-sex on-screen kiss.Valkyrie is canonically bisexual in the comic book series, but her interest in women receives only a few quick nods in the latest film.

It’s mentioned a few times that Valkyrie still grieves for her former Asgardian girlfriend who died in battle. This might actually explain why, when she first appeared in Thor: Ragnarok, it was as a drunken slave trapper who seemed to have little to live for.At another point in Thor: Love and Thunder, Valkyrie seductively kisses the hand of one of Zeus’ handmaidens.

Sadly, she doesn’t get the young devotee’s digits before taking off.Later on, when Thor mentions that they don’t know “what team Jane plays for” — meaning that he wants to better understand where her loyalties lie — Vakyrie smirks and tells Thor that she’s “Team Jane.” The phrase “what team they play on” is common slang for “whether they’re straight or queer,” and Valkyrie’s comment seems to alarm Thor, as if she’s just expressed interest in his ex.When discussing love and relationships with Valkyrie, Korg reveals that, among his species, males reproduce by holding hands for a month with another male over a lava.
