Marvel movie to bring in two LGBTQ characters

Washington D.C., [USA] June 26 (ANI): Marvel Cinematic Universe is all set to get interesting as two new LGBTQ characters will now be featured in their future films.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the studio's President Kevin Fiege said that the audience is already aware of them.
He also mentioned that the characters are new to storylines in future Marvel films.
Last year, Hollywood actress Tessa Thompson declared on Twitter that the character of Valkyrie she played in 'Thor: Ragnarok' was a bisexual one.
She had written, "She's bi. And yes, she cares very little about what men think of her. What a joy to play!"



There were speculations that Fiege, in reality, never wanted to portray the bisexual side of Valkyrie in the Thor movie.
The criticism came in after the latest Marvel film 'Ant-Man and The Wasp' was launched in San Francisco, a landmark city for gay rights with a large LGBTQ population.
However, no characters from the community got any representation in the film.
Entertainment Weekly further reported that 'Captain America' movie fans are looking forward to see the love and friendship between Bucky and Steve grow into something more. (ANI)
