The first gay character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was introduced in Avengers: Endgame, and was played by director Joe Russo. Many found the LGBTQ inclusion to be vague at best as Russo’s sexuality was introduced with a throw-away line. Since then, Marvels fans have been clamouring for more films from the Avengers studio to be more inclusive. It’s grand to know that Kevin Fiege’s efforts are being supported by Marvel fans as a whole and Mark Ruffalo himself. There isn’t any indication as to who the character in question is, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we know who it is!
