Who could it be?

Captain Marvel, Captain America (Falcon) , Bucky, THANOS?

Making Captain Marvel will be really ballsy considering her movie did incredibly well in countries like China, Indonesia and other foreign countries which are not really tolerant of LGBT

JK Rowling - Thanos had an intense sexual relationship with Eitri the dwarf.

Captain Marvel would be my preferred choice, since her character has no actual good traits as is so it wouldn't "ruin" her.

Tell that to China which censors all homosexual reference in movies. China is the most important market after US. For all we know they will officially declare character gay but there will be nothing in movies.

Hopefully they make a trash character like Captain Marvel gay because she has no redeeming qualities whatsoever so her being gay wouldn't ruin her. Plus, she looked pretty butch at the end of Endgame. It'd fit.

Wasn’t Valkyrie said to be gay or bi? I’m cool with her. There was also supposed to be a rumor of Herc being gay whenever he shows up down the road. That would just be against the whole ladykiller thing he has, bi, sure since it’s been hinted in the comics.

Yeah well it's been pretty unrealistic all these years that not a single LGBT character was revealed in any part of the universe, Marvel Cinema or TV, ever.

That's what I'm thinking. They said there was a scene written with her iN Ragnarok that implied a sexual relationship with another valkyrie. Maybe they'll actually put that on screen.

Women do not "count" towards the gay representation in any given show, because lesbianism can be pleasant to male viewers. Also, you can't make an Asian or black actor gay, because they already have the burden of a token. Welcome to the XXIst century.

Nah, it's got to be a white male.

I want there to be LGBT characters. All fans should have representation. I hate it when white male executives think they deserve a pat on the back for doing so. Just make a damn movie and make a character straight or gay based on the story. For the most part a character’s sexual preferences wouldn’t ever come into play unless they have an onscreen romance. Otherwise Shut Up about it. I hated JK Rowling’s and Disney’s recent queer baiting. Also looking for praise each time you include a person of color in a movie gets pretty irritating.

Cool. I don't have a problem with it. Valkyrie makes a lot of sense, being that's how Tessa Thompson leans.

@nucleon:

Lesbianism is still in the terms of 'gay', even if it appeals to males (which I don't see how that's a bad thing.Representing something that's progressive while appeasing the audience). Making it simply a gay White Male just for the sake of racial matters is kinda counterproductive to the message they're trying to send.

I don’t really care just as long as they don’t change a character who was already well established not to be gay.

is it just me or does Disney seem like they just forgot to be inclusive earlier so they're doing it all right now

"crap, infinity war is almost here and we haven't had a movie starring a black person"

"crap, we also forgot to make a movie starring a woman"

"crap we forgot to even include a gay character"

"oh well we can do it now at the end (or after) we finish everything we tried to do with the MCU, so now the inclusive era is a nice little bonus"

@mrnoital: It is not Disney but previous Marvel CEO who was not really in on diversity. Kevin Feige only got complete control in 2016

@buttersdaman000: Bucky can't be gay - we saw him dating women with Steve, and remebering the time where he had the women's attention with fondness once Steve got super.

Meh...

As long as isn't any character whose sexuality was established by canon media already, I honestly think it's fine.

@tobymaguire: You’re right and that’s why it’s become a bad joke. It’s not real diversity it’s pandering tokenism. Like Rose in Star Wars.
