The Eternals will feature a character who is LGBTQ, following the acknowledgement
of Valkyrie as another LGBTQ hero in Thor: Love and Thunder, as stated by MCU president
Tessa Thompson, who plays Valkyrie has been open about her character being bisexual in the Marvel movies.
She’s bi. And yes, she cares very little about what men think of her. What a joy to play! https://t.co/d0LZKTHCfL

Feige told Collider at Marvel’s 2019 San Diego Comic-Con Saturday:
“It will be the case not just with her, but with other characters in some of
the movies we’ve talked about today.”
When asked if an LGBTQ character exists in Eternals, Feige said,
“Yes.” Feige again confirmed there will be a character who identifies as LGBTQ.
