Kevin Feige Reveals That Marvel's First Transgender Character Will Be Introduced Soon - UPDATED!


Outsiders - January 02, 2020
UPDATE: Variety has updated their site stating that Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige did not intend to confirm that a transgender character will appear in an upcoming film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Variety is reporting that Feige was asked if the studio has any plans “on bringing more LGBT+ characters into the MCU, specifically the T, trans characters.”

“Yes — absolutely, yes,” Feige said.“And very soon. In a movie that we’re shooting right now.”

The Marvel Studios President's answer answer appeared to respond to the specific question about a trans character, two sources close to the studio tell Variety that Feige only intended to respond to the first part about LGBT+ characters, and he did not mean to imply that a trans character will be coming to the MCU “very soon.”


Marvel Studios President and Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige revealed Wednesday during a New York Film Academy Q&A event that Marvel is looking to introduce its first transgender big-screen character and it will be in one of the feature films that has already begin filming. This answer came about when he was asked by an audience member asked if a transgender character would ever take flight in a Marvel Cinematic Universe adventure.

“Yes, absolutely yes,” Feige responded. “And very soon. In a movie we’re shooting right now.” That could mean a film as soon as Black Widow this May or as far off as the first Black Panther sequel in May 2022.

Black Widow is in post-production but the studio has been known of major last-moment additions. Other projects now shooting include The Eternals and lined up for next year: Destin Daniel Cretton’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Scott Derrikson’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love & Thunder.

Ok this is thread is shitshow but I think everyone can agree we can get decent story about transgender character, that isnt some sjwfairy tale and also isnt some blink and miss type appearance.

Gonna have to disagree with you there. Not because I don't think a story like that should be written, I just don't think Hollywood has the honest-to-God ability to write decent, thoughtful stories about anything or anyone any more.

That's a shame to, as I can remember quite a few honest, thought provoking movies involving LGBQ characters / plot-lines back in the 80s. A REAL shame when you consider two or three of these movies would do much more for acceptance than a hundred ham-fisted Arrow-verse shows (and maybe repair some of the damage those shows have done to boot).

Best stories are based on internal conflict, gender dysphoria is exact that internal conflict that makes for a compelling story ifdone right, we dont have exact same intern conflict as superheroes do but we can still relate to them on some level, same can be done in that case, thats what good story telling can do.

Wow... This is an ignorant, hateful diatribe. You are either massively out of touch with reality, or are just kind of broken, morally. I feel bad for you, you can't be a happy or well-adjusted person. Whatever makes you so angry, bitter, and hateful inside, I hope you figure it out and fix it, so you don't keep living such a bitter, angry life.

How is what he said ignorant OR hateful. Just because he doesn't agree with your opinion doesn't make his any less valid. Don't fall into the trap that most permissive far leftists do, hidingbehind freedom of speech while forgetting that it goes both ways.

I don't collect the MCU figs, only comic book based, so either way they weren't getting my $$.

Outta touch with reality? Lol. Nah bro, I just speak facts. As a former US Marine who went to play in the sandbox in Iraq & Afghanistan a couple of times , I got to know the people there really good & believe me when I say that they hate the type of people that you & Hollywood are catering too with a supreme passion. Go look up the vids of them tossing people off buildings & then stoning them to death if they survive the fall. America is the greatest country on the planet . Anyone who says otherwise is the ignorant one. Go live in the middle east as you do here, see what happens. You wanna see "hate", go hold another man's hand in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afghanistan, see what happens?

Semper fi 2/8

Wasn't planning on seeing Eternals as I've never given a crap about this "New Gods lite" team. BTW, God made Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve. There are only 2 sexes, not 32! And Hollywood is the last corporation that should be trying to force the LGBTXYZ agenda down the throats of the vast majority of us who could give a rat's butt about how those people choose to live their lives. And it's laughable that some really think they have it "bad" in America for being LGBT. In other countries, they throw you from the highest building they can find & a crowd is at the bottom waiting to stone you to death should you survive the fall. But yeah, they have it "bad" in evil ol America.
