Why Marvel Universe does not have gay heroes? “Already in 2018, and we still wonder why Marvel continues to eradicate gay, bisexual, transgendered characters,” the Huffington Post put it. There are characters who are not heterosexual in the original manga, but when they go to the screen, Marvel seeks to hide it. Watch movies on zmovies very good!
In the Marvel movie universe, there are as many giant numbers as 19 movies, grossing $ 15.5 billion. But there is a very small number of heterosexual characters displayed publicly on the screen: 0 characters. In the comic book Marvel there are characters from many different sex and sexual orientation. LGBTQ (gay, bisexual, transgender and others) is no stranger to the Marvel Universe during the last 30 years. In particular, Marvel had the first male gay identity in 1992. The first gay marriage appeared in 2012. Some celebrities in the Marvel universe are not the most popular, is a favorite villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) – who is known as the “pansexual”, and appears in comedies as men and women in comics.
In the comics, Loki has transformed into animals and women in the past, and then has relationships with both men and women. But on the big screen, the gender of the character is almost unspecified and there is only one male figure. Odin himself admitted that his son was “both male and female”. In Thor: Ragnarok, the warrior character of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) who is bisexual, but a scene of a woman leaving her bathroom early in the morning was cut off, though shot.
In the beginning of 2018, Black Panther fans are eagerly awaiting the love scenes of Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Ayo (Florence Kasumb) – pair of heroic women and warriors are standing side by side. But they were disappointed that Marvel turned the character into “straight”, turning Okoye into the wife of General W’Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya). Joe Robert Cole, the scriptwriter of the Black Panther, bluntly dismissed Okoye and Ayo as a pair of widows on the big screen.
