Tessa Thompson Reveals Valkyrie's Preferred 'Avengers' Throuple

Tessa Thompson gushed over Captain Marvel at the “Avengers: Endgame” world premiere in Los Angeles.

The actress, who played the Asgardian hero Valkyrie in “Thor: Ragnarok,” told Variety’s Marc Malkin her favorite Avenger is the newcomer played by Brie Larson.

“‘Captain Marvel’ just broke the ceiling off –– a gajillion dollars –– and dissipated myths about what women can do in these spaces, which is exciting,” she said. “It feels like we’re really entering a new phase of Marvel.”

Thompson also said she portrayed as bisexual to align with her character in the comics, and agreed with fans shipping her online with both Captain Marvel and Thor.

“I think a communal spoon –– just a spoon between friends that are hard working –– is a nice thing,” she said. “It could be polyamorous, why not? A throuple.” Topping it off, Larson came over to kiss Thompson on the cheek during the interview, igniting even more fandoms.
