The Marvel Cinematic Universe — a series of interconnected comic book movies and television shows — has become the most popular and successful entertainment franchise in the world, supplanting Star Wars for the top spot, something no one ever thought would be possible, yet, here we are.
Up to this point, the 20 plus films that make up the MCU have maintained a fairly middle-of-the-road approach to politics with the Captain America character and films presenting a very libertarian like stance on issues of government.
For the most part, there hasn’t been the typical pandering to the LGBT community that other films and franchises have started doing under the guise of “representation.” Most of this is simply virtue signaling done to appear relevant in the public square.
It looks like this is about to change, unfortunately, as Kevin Fiege, head of Marvel Studios, has declared that LGBT superheroes are coming in the future.
In an interview Monday to promote this month’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige told The Playlist that future entries in the superhero saga would include multiple characters confirmed onscreen to be gay or bisexual.Trending:
“When are we getting a Gay, Bi, LGBTQ, out character in the MCU?” the interviewer asked. “Is it even in the works?” Feige answered that it was, teasing that in addition to at least one completely new character, at least one previously-established character would be revealed to be LGBT in some way.
This isn’t the first time Feige has made a similar promise; in 2015 he told Collider that audiences could expect to see a homosexual, bisexual, or transgender character sometime within the next decade.Advertisement - story continues below
However, whether Feige’s words signal a sincere desire to add LGBT messages to the movies, or are merely meant to appease disgruntled LGBT activists, remains unknown. “Never EVER believe anything that #KevinFeige says,” entertainment journalist Grace Randolph said Monday. “[H]e says yes to everything he’s ever asked because he doesn’t want any negative coverage.”
This is yet another attempt by socialists to normalize deviant sexual behavior in the quest to undermine traditional values and obliterate the institution of the family. The family stands in the way of these folks’ ability to apply their sick and twisted agenda, which they hope will lead to some sort of state-run utopian society.
The main problem with this is that these are films primarily aimed at kids. The last thing kids need is more confusion when it comes to human sexuality. Public schools have done a bang up job of creating more than enough of that.
The truth is, Marvel just needs to stick to what’s done thus far, appealing to the largest portion of the population. Homosexuals represent an extremely small percentage of the demographic who watch comic book films, so why cater to their tastes?
We just can’t have nice things anymore.
