Thor: Ragnarok will contain Marvel's first bisexual blockbuster film superhero: Valkyrie, played by Westworld's Tessa Thompson. The character, a renegade, no-bullshit warrior hero, is bisexual in the comics, and Thompson confirmed she brought that sexuality into her acting choices on-screen:
She’s bi. And yes, she cares very little about what men think of her. What a joy to play! https://t.co/d0LZKTHCfL

Sadly, that doesn't mean we're about to see some female-on-female macking in the film. Thompson confirms that while her character is bisexual, it's not "explicitly addressed" in the movie:
YES! Val is Bi in the comics & I was faithful to that in her depiction. But her sexuality isn’t explicitly addressed in Thor: Ragnarok. https://t.co/hmb5lYN5to

In March, the yellow Power Ranger was announced to be the first bisexual superhero for a franchise film.
Thor: Ragnarok opens November 2. Watch the trailer, below:
