Don’t you know yet who Jacob Batalon is? Shame on you! Jacob Batalon enjoys a great popularity of fans since he appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming. He cast there the best friend of Peter Parker called Ned. And now he is doing that one more time.
He has the same point of view as co-star of him Laura Harrier (Liz). They support a trans version of the main character Parker. Jacob was all aboard while being interviewed by Huffington Post. To his mind it is actually really good that I and my colleagues understand the importance of existing this trans version. Transgender characters are nothing new for Marvel. Loki appears as bisexual in comics, and another actor Tim Hiddleston supports it. Even a lot of fans got vibes between Loki and Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster in the recent version Thor: Ragnarok.
Marvel’s comics are full of several queer characters. But for some reasons representation on screen lags still behind. Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok is also bisexual, but the problem is that it’s not so clear in the movie. According to Guardian reports actor’s characters could be queer, but it’s crazy to fans and can lead to misunderstandings.
