Marvel confirms "The Eternals" will have openly gay character - News



So far, Valkyrie is the only queer superheroine in the Marvel Film Universe: actress Tessa Thompson has confirmed Thor's partner's bisexuality.

There are no references in the movies: images of a woman leaving Valkyrie's room were cut from "Thor: Ragnarok" (2017) because director Taika Waititi thought they would divert attention from the main purpose of the scene.

"The Eternals" will be the 1976 adaptation of Jack Kirby's comic book that revolves around the Eternal superhumans and the confrontation with the Celestial extraterrestrials.

The cast also stands out for its diversity, with Angelina Jolie (the fierce warrior Thena), Richard Madden (the almighty Ikaris), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo, endowed with cosmic powers), Lauren Ridloff (the super fast Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (the clever inventor Phastos), Salma Hayek (the wise and spiritual leader Ajak), Lia McHugh (the eternally young Sprite), Don Lee (the mighty Gilgamesh), Barry Keoghan (the lone Druig), Gemma Chan (the protector of humanity) Sersi) and Kit Harington (the non-Eternal Dane Whitman / Black Knight).

Directed by Chloé Zhao, director of the acclaimed "The Rider" (unheard of commercially in our country), premieres in national theaters in November 2020.
