'The world is ready' for a gay superhero in the MCU, says Marvel's Victoria Alonso

A rainbow banner could before long fly outside the workplaces of Marvel Studios. 

Wonder Studios official VP of physical creation Victoria Alonso as of late talked with Variety in front of the Los Angeles debut of Captain Marvel prior this week. Amid her visit with the outlet, Alonso expressed that she feels the opportunity has already come and gone the Marvel Cinematic Universe includes a gay hero at the cutting edge of the activity. 

"The world is prepared," Alonso said. "The world is prepared." 

Alonso and Variety journalist Marc Malkin got to discussing LGBTQ+ portrayal with the MCU after Malkin questioned her about the throwing procedure for Marvel's Eternals movie. As indicated by a report distributed by That Hashtag Show on Tuesday, March 5, Eternals is exploring for a straightforwardly gay performing artist matured 30 to 49 years who "physically take after a superhuman" to take on one of the film's lead jobs, which will purportedly be a gay hero. This would stamp the first example in which Marvel has put a transparently gay male as a lead character in one of its Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Wonder is said to be "putting forth an admirable attempt to keep the personality of the character a mystery" — and that incorporates Alonso. 

Gotten some information about the "throwing of the transparently gay performing artist for the gay superhuman for Eternals," Alonso appeared to affirm the procedure had just begun. However, she halted herself before she disclosed an excess of data. She at that point guaranteed that fans won't be frustrated with the stars Marvel winds up choosing for the announced gay character and whatever remains of the Eternals group. 

"We are going to cast the best Eternals cast that we can, and when we're prepared to report it, we guarantee you, we will," she said. 

Alonso at that point underscored exactly how committed Marvel is to guaranteeing its movies are as various and comprehensive as could be allowed, because, as she put it, "Is there any valid reason why we wouldn't be?" 

"I'm so energetic about this, I must let you know. Our whole achievement depends on fantastically unique individuals. Is there any good reason why we wouldn't? For what reason would we just need to be perceived by just a single kind of individual? Our crowd is worldwide, is asserted, is comprehensive. On the off chance that we don't do it that path for them, we will fall flat. On the off chance that we don't put the pedal to the metal on the decent variety and the inclusivity, we won't have proceeded with progress," the official expressed. "Our assurance is to have that for the majority of the general population out there viewing our motion pictures." 

It's significant that the Marvel Comics-based movie Deadpool 2 incorporated the lesbian character Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by Brianna Hildebrand, a straightforwardly gay performing artist. However, Deadpool 2 (and its 2016 forerunner) are excluded in the MCU — twentieth Century Fox still claims the film rights to the character and will clutch them until the studio's merger with Disney, the parent organization of Marvel Studios, experiences this year. 

To that equivalent impact, the Marvel Comics inventories are peppered with a lot of LGBTQ+ legends and reprobates — incorporating the Merc with a Mouth himself (he's pansexual), America Chavez (a.k.a. Miss America), and even Loki (who is either cross-sexual or pansexual, contingent upon which Marvel essayist you inquire). In any case, America Chavez presently can't seem to show up in the MCU and Deadpool is hanging out at Fox for the time being. And, after its all said and done, Deadpool performing artist Ryan Reynolds isn't, as far as anyone is concerned, an individual from the LGBTQ+ people group. Concerning Loki, he hasn't unequivocally examined his sexuality in a Marvel motion picture — and Tom Hiddleston, the man behind the lord of fiendishness, hasn't talked about recognizing as LGBTQ+. 

Wonder throwing a transparently gay on-screen character to play a straightforwardly gay superhuman would be a milestone move for the studio — and would probably mean a lot to aficionados of the studio's movies who distinguish as something besides hetero. 

It would likewise imply that Marvel Studio's big cheese Kevin Feige followed through on comments he's given in years past. In 2018, after the appalling cleaning from Thor: Ragnarok the main scene that affirmed Valkryie's (Tessa Thompson) androgyny, Feige uncovered to The Playlist that Marvel Studios would before long present no less than two LGBTQ+ characters to the MCU — a few fans have just met, and some that will be fresh out of the box new to the extra large screen. He affirmed that the plans are "underway," and the characters will be "the two ones you've seen and ones you haven't seen." 

Three years sooner, in 2015, Feige told Collider that an LGBTQ+ character will absolutely join the MCU before 2025. "I would think along these lines, without a doubt," he said when gotten some information about the likelihood of that occurrence inside the following decade. Feige then clarified that the studio first references the comic book source material while making new true to life storylines and setting up new undertakings, so the odds of the MCU presenting an LGBTQ+ character down the line are very high. 

He expressed, "The funnies dependably make the way that we get the chance to have a ton of fun of saying, 'No doubt we should pick along these lines or how about we pick thusly' and I think there are a lot of cool things occurring in the funnies now that — it's normally a five to ten-year cycle between when something occurs in the funnies and when we can do it in the motion picture, some of the time somewhat less, yet Civil War is positively about the 10-year point. Winter Soldier, I believe, was around that time. So we generally see stuff that is occurring in the funnies and go, 'Where might we be able to do that?' Sometimes it's sooner, yet there's no motivation behind why that couldn't occur in the following decade or sooner." 

This considered, from Feige's past remarks to Alonso's made here, plainly Marvel needs to be increasingly comprehensive — and that doing as such will enable a more extensive gathering of individuals to interface with and appreciate Marvel films on an entirely new dimension. While the Eternals bits of gossip haven't been affirmed now, something discloses to us that the inevitable movie will be an earth-shattering one that will begin a pattern inside the MCU and encourage a situation in which all the more transparently LGBTQ+ superheroes can exist.
