The head of Marvel has confirmed as part of an appearance at the New York Film Academy that they will be introducing a transgender character to the Marvel Universe.
The figurehead of Marvel Comics, Kevin Feige was speaking at an event for the New York Film Academy where he fielded questions from the audience after pledging his aspirations for the MCU’s future.
That led to an audience member asking if there were any plans for the introduction of any LGBTQ+ characters. He confirmed that transgender characters were in the pipeline, “Yes, absolutely yes” he responded.
While he naturally didn’t share much about the new character, Feige did confirm that the transgender character would be joining the Marvel Universe “very soon, in a movie that we’re shooting right now.”
That statement has naturally sent fans wildly theorising on who the new character might be. But for now, watch Feige’s New York Film Academy appearance below:
