Marvel’s Next Level of Political Correctness By Chris Knight
It was only a matter of time. Marvel back in the 1960s worked on getting politically correct themes into the comics of the day. Now, way down the track, it is full speed ahead:
“Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington ripped Marvel Studios, saying gay people suffer from a lack of representation in the film company’s superhero movies. “There’s a big problem with masculinity and homosexuality that they can’t somehow go hand in hand,” Harington said in an interview with Variety at the Toronto International Film Festival. “That we can’t have someone in a Marvel movie who’s gay in real life and plays some superhero. I mean, when is that going to happen?” Yet in an interview with The Playlist, Marvel president Kevin Feige confirmed that the studio was planning to include openly LGBT characters for future films.”
I say, good, don’t hold back, bring it all on now. But first, put the big money behind the movie. We won’t be watching.
