It was been in the works and talked about for quite some time, but we now know we can expect an official announcement very soon! Marvel will be introducing its first openly gay character and we can't wait. Check out the video above for all the details...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been making an effort when it comes to diversity and inclusion, however one major group has been missing and that is the MCU's first LGBTQ character. Although some characters' sexuality has never been overtly discussed, an openly gay character in the MCU would be a historic moment for all. Joe Russo mentions in a recent interview that Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, will be making the official announcement very soon.
