Those Russo Brothers are really trying to come for Taron Egerton‘s newly given Hetero Ally King Of Gays-crown, because they are trying to get in with us LGBTQs good. First they put that TRAILBLAZING homosexual character in Avengers: Endgame– played by Joe Russo himself–but now he and his brother Anthony Russo are letting us know that one of the Marvel superheroes we already know will be coming out as a huge gay “soon”. Get those rainbow cakes and angry homophobic tweets ready!
Entertainment Weekly reports that after putting that openly gay character in Avengers: Endgame for all of 3 of the 182 minutes of the movie–the Russos are telling us that it’s gonna get gayer. Joe’s character was a regular dude at an After The Snap-Anonymous meeting where he let it be known he’d gone on his first date with a man.
The directors spoke with EW Morning Live and told them that a character will soon be revealed as gay in an upcoming film and they’re coyly suggesting that it may be someone we already know (Please can I see Chris Hemsworth stick his tongue in another man’s mouth before I die? Please!) While the Russo brothers still think that their gay was “integral” to the Avengers movie:
“It was an integral scene to show how the world was reacting to what happened in at the end of Infinity War.”
They also let it be known that there have been insinuations about other characters’ sexuality, and when pressed about who else is gay, the Russos used every Gossip Gays fave trick and sipped their tea while suggesting they had to keep quiet. Joe replied:
“Uhhh… We’re gonna find out!”
And Anthony added:
“That’s a story for another day.”
Last summer, Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, said that two openly gay characters would be coming, saying they were: “Both ones you’ve seen and ones you haven’t seen.” Since Joe was the one we hadn’t seen and didn’t know (and still don’t–he didn’t have a NAME!) there’s probably someone coming out soon, and Joe said yup! There for sure is:
“There is a gay character coming up in one of their films, and I think Kevin will make that announcement, I’m sure pretty soon.”
If it is someone we’ve seen, I’m going to guess it’s Tessa Thompson‘s character, Valkyrie (pictured above as a blonde white girl), who was hinted at being a lesbian in Thor: Ragnarok. So me hinks that we’ll see her making out with someone soon–also going to say my guess is Captain Marvel, because if you’ve seen Avengers: Endgame you know that by the end of the movie she definitely has the stereotypical haircut for it.
