The Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to get its first transgender character.
This revelation allegedly came from Marvel Studios boss Kevin Fiege said during a Q&A at the New York Film Academy.
Asked by a fan whether there were any plans for more LGBT characters in Marvel’s films, specifically trans characters, Fiege said: “Yes, absolutely. Yes. And very soon. In a movie that we’re shooting right now.”
There is no official word yet though on which Marvel movie will feature the character.
There have been reports since 2019 that Phase 4 of the MCU – the films following the Avengers Infinity saga – would star a trans character.
