The Marvel Cinematic Universe just got a serious update – its first transgender superhero!
“And very soon. In a movie that we’re shooting right now,” Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige said during a Q&A at the New York Film Academy.
Asked by a fan whether there were any plans for more LGBT characters in Marvel’s films, “specifically the T, trans characters”, Kevin said, “Yes, absolutely. Yes.”
The news comes months after Marvel released “The Endgame” in 2019, featuring Marvel’s first openly gay character, played by Joe Russo.
To excite you even more, Marvel has also said it will introduce its first deaf superhero in The Eternals and its first Asian-American superhero, in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
“You look at the success of Captain Marvel and Black Panther. We want the movies to reflect the audience and we want every member of our global audience to see themselves reflected on the screen,” Kevin Feige previously said.
