Marvel to be more LGBT-inclusive


The latest instalment of the Thor series is going to include a queer character spreading diversity to Marvel cinema world. Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the series, will be set four years after the events of The Dark World, and two years after Avengers: Age of Ultron. With Thor captive on planet Sakaar, he must battle the Hulk to save his planet or die for it. Less than two months away from its highly anticipated release the filmmakers promise some surprises, in part in the cast. Chris Hemsworth returns as Thor – the God of Thunder – and the film will also introduce Cate Blanchett as the villain, Hela. But the most exciting news surrounds the possibility of the series’ first gay character, Korg. The character, who appears mainly in the Incredible Hulk comics, has his sexuality confirmed in Issue 619 of the comic series. He is shown to be in a same-sex relationship with the one-armed Hiroim, a member of an alliance of alien warriors called the Warbound.
