When the site asked Kravitz if that meant that Anika was more than just friends with Selena, she confirmed it. "That's definitely the way I interpreted that, that they had some kind of romantic relationship," she responded.
When the interviewer expressed happiness about the fact that Catwoman, who is often portrayed as bisexual in the comics, would finally be queer on the big screen, Kravitz "nodded emphatically," and said, "I agree!"
The Pedestrian also asked director Matt Reeves about the scene, but he was less on board with the idea.
"In terms of her relationship with Anika, I spoke to Zoe very early on and one of the things she said which I loved was that: 'She's drawn to strays because she was a stray and so she really wants to care for these strays because she doesn't want to be that way anymore and Anika is like a stray and she loves her," he said. "She actually represents this connection that she has to her mother who she lost, who was a stray anymore.'"
"So I don't think we meant to go directly in that way, but you can interpret it that way for sure," he continued. "She has an intimacy with that character and it's a tremendous and deep caring for that character, more so than a sexual thing, but there was meant to be quite an intimate relationship between them."
The major difference is that, at the time, Marvel Studios had no queer superheroes in its cinematic universe, and so Valkyrie's off-screen confirmation was the first time an MCU character was confirmed to be gay.
In the DCEU, there's already Harley Quinn, who was shown to be bisexual in her solo film, as well as Renee Montoya, a lesbian former cop in the same movie. More recently, the show Peacemaker introduced lesbian character Leota Adebayo (Danielle Brooks) and confirmed that the show's main character, Peacemaker, is bisexual.
