Marvel is set to announce the introduction of a new gay character in an upcoming film, according to the directors of Avengers: Endgame im the interview with SiriusXM . Joe Russo said that the new gay character is coming but it is necessary to wait for a while until Kevin Feige makes a more detailed announcement. Joe made the comments during a conversation about his cameo in Avengers: Endgame, where he appeared as Marvel’s first openly gay character. But this character was too minor to satisfy the desire of queer Marvel fans to see their community represented. In March, openly gay Marvel exec Victoria Alonso said “the world is ready” for being saved by a queer superhero in some movie. Reports suggest that the studio is secretly casting an openly gay man to play the lead role in The Eternals. In April, Alonso and casting director Sarah Halley Finn expressed their support for more diverse characters in Marvel films in an interview with Vulture.
