Avengers: Endgame directors hint at existing gay characters in Marvel Cinematic Universe

In Avengers: Endgame, there was a scene featuring co-director Joe Russo in a support group with Steve Rogers as the leader. Russo’s character talks about his love life that just so happens to involve another man. This caused quite a stir with some fans since it was the first openly gay character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So does that mean there’s another gay character that we don’t know about? The Russo brothers seem to be hinting at that.

The Russo brothers talked about how the scene was an important one in Avengers: Endgame.

“It was an integral scene to show how the world was reacting to what happened in at the end of Infinity War,” Joe tells EW.

EW’s Ross asked to elaborate whether the character was the first gay character in a Marvel Studios film.

“Yes, openly gay,” Joe highlighted. “There’ve been insinuations about other characters’ sexuality, but this is the first openly gay character.”

“Who else is gay?” Shaw asked.

“Uhhh,” Joe said. “We’re gonna find out!”

“That’s a story for another day,” Anthony said.

Notice how Joe mentioned other characters as in plural? Could that mean there is more than one gay character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Who could it be? There was a fan art featuring Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Thompson loved the idea and shared it with Larson.

Synopsis: The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”

The film is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from the screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. It stars Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie.
