Film: Thor: Love and Thunder
*This review contains spoilers*
Thor: Love and Thunder burst on the scene last week as fan favourites Thor and Valkyrie team up with an old friend to take down a villain out for revenge. Fans have eagerly waited to see if the character Valkyrie will be canonically queer in this movie as well as the comics. Fans were not disappointed; Valkyrie was confirmed queer and had a brief flirtation scene with a God from Omnipotence City. In addition, Korg reveals that his species, the Kronans, reproduce by the males holding hands over pools of lava until a new baby is created, and at the end of the film falls in love with another male Kronan. However, fans are hoping that this is just a step forward into a wider display of more queer characters, due to the overwhelming heteronormativity of the MCU in the last fifteen years.
