After disappointing “queer moments” in the Marvel Cinematic Uuniverse like America Chavez being straightwashed in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Valkyrie’s bisexuality being edited out of Thor: Ragnarok, and, of course, Avengers: Endgame’s infamous Grieving Man, we’re ready for a gay-ass Marvel movie.
We’re hoping that movie will be Taika Waititi’s upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. Seeing how queer Taika’s latest projects, What We Do in the Shadows and Our Flag Means Death have been queer as hell, each featuring several queer leads, fans are pretty excited that this movie might be the first time we get to see indulgent queerness in the MCU.
Obviously, it’s still Disney, home of Barely-There LGBTQ+ Representation, so we’re not holding our breaths, but the more we learn about this movie, the gayer it looks. And now that we’ve gotten the first official trailer, we have a whole new set of reasons to scream our gay little heads off. Here are seven of the gayest moments from the new trailer.
Thor: Love and Thunder flies into theaters on July 6.
Okay, hear me out. Valkyrie is looking for a queen in this movie right? How perfect would it be if that queen was Thor’s very own ex, Jane Foster? The two look great together and have great chemistry in this scene where the two women watch Thor get stripped naked in front of Zeus.
Speaking of Thor getting stripped naked!!! Look at that back!!! Will the theatrical cut still blur out his ass? Only time will tell. We also love that when Zeus’ attendants see naked Thor in all his glory, it’s not just the women who pass out, it’s the men too. Looks like everyone in this movie is bisexual!
Also, look at that huge Loki tribute tattoo on his back. Guess he really misses his little brother.
Now this is what the sapphics really want! Queer superheroes being badass! We only get a glimpse of it, but it looks like Valkyrie is fighting the movie’s big villain Gorr, the God Butcher (Christian Bale) using Zeus’ lightning!!! God, could she get any more cool or any more hot?
