AceShowbiz - Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has confirmed a trans character will appear in a new superhero movie.
Fans of the comic book franchise have urged Feige to include more LGBTQ+ characters, with Tessa Thompson revealing her character Valkyrie was gay or bisexual earlier in 2019.
Now, the studio boss has revealed trans people will be represented in an upcoming Marvel movie, likely "The Eternals", which is the only film currently shooting.
Asked during a question and answer session at the New York Film Academy whether Marvel has any plans to introduce more LGBTQ+ characters, and specifically trans characters, Feige said, "Yes, absolutely yes," before adding, "Very soon, in a movie we're shooting right now, yes."
In July, the Geeks WorldWide website reported on Marvel casting notices for a trans character - but no details have officially been released.
