This movie got a thumbs up from Bisexual Resource Center. It looks like it’s only playing at independent theaters, so keep an eye out!

I just want to add that this movie has been made by a cis man who seems to have put his own ‘aesthetic’ taste into the making of the sex scene

He also behaved pretty badly towards his young female actresses

He also got A LOT of criticism from the creator of the original comic (who is lesbian herself) and other sources

So, if I may suggest something - there might be people out there (me) who wouldn’t feel comfortable supporting this director (even though, of course, high viewing rates of any queer film might be a nudge in the right direction for the whole industry). The fact remains, this movie has been made by a heterosexual man who put A LOT more emphasis into the sex scene than necessary, AND the production of this movie about queer women did not actually involve a single actual queer woman as far as we know about - no advisors and no out production members with significant say in the presentation of the characters or relationship, at least.

If you still want to consume this story in any way, might I suggest you buy the graphic novel?

I like it

"It’s currently unclear who exactly is filling the role of Thor going forward, as the original character wasn’t gender-swapped."

No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR.

"And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!" "

" "This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe."

meanwhile DC’s like “we love ubisoft”
