Its worth pointing out that Tessa Thompsons character Valkyrie is one of the characters Feige said already existed.

Taika Waititi revealed that the character had enjoyed a kiss with another female in the film, but sadly that was cut in the editing stage of the theatrical release.

The other character Feige could refer to may be appearing in Spider-Man: Far From Home, Captain Marvel or the next phase of Marvel films the studio does not plan on announcing until after the next untitled Avengers film.
