Marvel fans reckon Thor could be gay. The God of Thunder is a Norse god who quests for thunder and wields the mighty hammer Mjolnir, but his sexuality has been up in the air since before he was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962’s Journey into Mystery #85.
Marvel fans have been speculating about a scene in the recently released Thor: Love and Thunder teaser that seems to show the God of Thunder exploring his sexuality.
Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is seen giving Chris Pratt’s character of Star-Lord, aka Peter Quill, a lingering look in the 90-second teaser trailer that dropped yesterday, giving audiences the first official look at the July blockbuster. This got many fans on Twitter hot under the collar about its meaning.
Thor is seen conversing with Star-Lord while the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy watch on in a playful scene set up by irreverent filmmaker Taika Waititi, who is back at the helm after 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
Following Thor’s choice to go with them after handing up the throne of New Asgard in Avengers: Endgame, Nebula (Karen Gillan), Drax The Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Groot (Vin Diesel), and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) are all present and correct.
‘Remember what I told you: If you ever feel lost, simply gaze into the eyes of the ones that you love,’ Star-Lord urges Thor as he prepares to ‘pick his own path.’
As he delivers the phrase, it’s evident that the Guardians’ captain is staring at his squad, little misty-eyed, but Thor shifts his head to be in Star-line Lord’s of sight, smiling at him.

As he watches Thor’s look, the outlaw emphasizes, ‘Not me.’
Thor then laughs to himself and attempts to dismiss it, saying, ‘What?’ Before staring out into the horizon, I was just listening.
Fans were ecstatic about the potential of Thor being homosexual in the forthcoming film after the unintentionally funny interaction, and they flocked to social media to offer their thoughts.
‘Gays, are we truly winning?’ one remarked, referring to Thor’s ‘looking in Peter’s eyes.’
‘Thor 4 looks like a homosexual romcom, and I adore it immediately,’ one joked.
Taika makes Thor homosexual, and for that I am grateful.°

Thor is no longer a boy’s toy. He’s for the ladies, the homosexuals, and the theys. He’s always been, but now it’s more apparent. Thank you very much. Taika Waititi (Taika Waititi) (Taika Waitit

‘Taika turns Thor queer, and I appreciate him for that,’ one commenter said, while another said, ‘Thor no longer belongs to the lads.’ He’s for the ladies, the homosexuals, and the theys.
‘He’s always been like this, but now it’s more apparent.’ Taika Waititi, thank you.’
Fans also got their first look at Russell Crowe as Zeus and Natalie Portman’s return as Jane Foster, who takes on the mantle of The Mighty Thor, in the trailer.
As she recounted her ‘heavyweight training,’ the actress revealed how she got into spectacular form for the part.
