Marvel Head Confirms They Will Be Buckling To The LGBTQ Community
Marvel has had quite a few hit movies in the past decade. It all began with Robert Downy Jr's portrayal of Iron Man and it looks like there is no end to the comic book-based movies. But instead of enjoying the films, as most of the public does, the LGBTQ community has been giving Marvel grief for failing to properly portray them in their movies. So Marvel is now claiming that they will be introducing a trans hero to the mix. So they are giving in to the maybe 5% of the population that identifies as LGBTQ.
"Marvel Studios will be delivering on its promise to include more LGBTQ characters in phase 4 of its cinematic universe, specifically trans characters.
According to Pink News, Marvel head Kevin Feige appeared at a Q&A event at the New York Film Academy where he said “absolutely, yes” in response to a question about any new trans characters in the upcoming slate of movies.
“He explained that a queer and/or trans character would be arriving ‘very soon, in a movie that we’re shooting right now,'” reports Pink News. “When asked by another audience member whether the successes of ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Captain Marvel’ would open the door to further diversity, Feige said that this ‘was always the plan for us.'”
Feige’s admission appears to confirm a July 2019 casting call for a trans woman of any ethnicity in their twenties or thirties, whom Geeks WorldWide speculated to be the character Sera – the universe’s only existing trans woman superhero. Prior to that, Marvel’s “The Eternals” will introduce the universe’s first openly gay superhero, Phastos, who will be married to a man, and will be portrayed by actor Brian Tyree Henry."
It is ridiculous that they would buckle to the LGBTQ. They have been killing it at the box office, so why change the formula? This whole mandatory diversity thing is abrasive. Let things be as they are. Spiderman doesn't suddenly need to be gay now, and we don't need a trans-Superman. If the LGBTQ wants those characters, they can create them themselves and then make their own movies. But no, here in the U.S. with the PC Climate they need recognition or they are being discriminated against...
