There is literally a scene where two named women talk to the man sitting between them and not to each other.
Another named character talks to other women but they don’t reply/converse.

I have to disagree with you Sally. Even though I am a TRUE feminist, and the age of twelve. The test doesn't show you that both of the women in this film don't need a man and mutually aren't afraid to kill eachother.

Mabelle, that is NOT what the test measures. In order to pass the test, Two named female characters have a dialogue, about a subject that's not a male. Does that happen? Yes=pass; No=fail.

Whether or not the women need a man or kill each other is a different test. The Mabelle Test, maybe? PS, Happy Belated 12th Birthday :)

It has 2 women who talk to each other, however Valkyrie is not a name it's a title. She was never given a proper name.

Valkyrie and the grand master’s assistant never had any conversation - only with grand master. It's pretty strange.

Valkyrie is a title but it is also used in the comics to identify a specific Valkyrie that is a recurring character.

In this regard it is as proper a name as Iron Man.

THe Valkyria (forgot her name but she has one) and Ella (the bad one) talk to each other during the battle. Well, it's more like exchanging insults but it should count has talking to each other and not about a man. So this film should pass the test imho.

Brunnhilde is Valkyrie's real name. Though it not mentioned in the movie, it is confirmed that her 'real name' is Brunnhilde. Valkyrie is her superhero name just how 'Iron Man' isn't Tony Stark's real name.
