Which LGBTQ+ Characters Could Enter Phase 4 Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Published

on

A major problem in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the lack of love towards the LGBTQ+ community. Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, recently stated that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will soon greet two new LGBTQ characters. With a plethora of characters available, we look at five that could make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut.

Cullen Bloodstone

As the only gay member of Avengers Underground, Cullen Bloodstone had issues with crushing on Anachronism. Bloodstone does not display stereotypical gay attributes. He’s the strongest person on the team and can turn into a monster without his Bloodstone ring. Since he’s great friends with The Runaways, he could show up in season two of their Hulu series.

Marvel

Daken

Wolverine’s son, Daken, has seen his fair share of male and female love interests in the books. From Bullseye to Mystique, he’s won over the best of the best. While we loved seeing Wolverine on screen for nine films, it’s about time his son got the spotlight.

Marvel

Hercules

Hercules debuted back in 1965 and has since become one of the most beloved Avengers members. Much like the Greek god, he was attracted to both men and women. For a brief time, he dated fellow superhero, Northstar. Replacing Thor with Hercules in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would make a lot of sense.

Marvel

America Chavez

Debuting in 2011, America Chavez (a.k.a. Miss America) won the hearts of LGBTQ fans worldwide. She’s slated to appear in the animated film Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors. Fans would love to see her take down villains in a possible Young Avengers film. There could even be a slight chance she dons the Captain America outfit.

Marvel

Iceman

As a founding member of the X-Men, Iceman was originally attracted to the ladies. In 2015, however, it was revealed that Bobby Drake had been gay the whole time. His 2017 comic series was Marvel’s first ongoing series with a gay lead. Shawn Ashmore, who played Iceman in the X-Men films, wants to reprise his role with the character’s newfound sexual orientation. “If they decided to take the story that way, it’d be incredibly dramatic, it’d be an interesting storyline and it would give Bobby a great character arc,” he told IGN.
