James Gunn Says Gay Characters Could Already Exist In MCU

So where are they?

Source: The Guardian

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn was asked about the possibility of the appearance of gay or bisexual characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Gunn revealed that there could be gay or bisexual characters and we just don't know it yet.

"You know, somebody asked me, 'Will there be any gay characters in Marvel movies?' and what I meant was there's a lot of characters in the MCU and very few of them that we've delved into what their sexuality is. Whether it's guy or straight or bisexual, we don't really know. Um, so I imagine that there are probably, you know, gay characters in the Marvel universe, you know, we just don't know who they are yet."

Gunn then held up a picture of a crowd scene from the movie and started pointing to random background characters. "See, that guy could be gay. This one could be too. Even that one over there."

The Marvel television universe has already shown LBGTQ couples in Jessica Jones and more are set to appear in The Runaways and New Warriors.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is out now around the world, except for the U.S. where it'll be released May 5.
