#WokeMarvel: Kevin Fiege Confirms That Marvel Will Feature Its First Trans Character In a Movie

Yayyy.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to get its first transgender superhero.

"And very soon. In a movie that we're shooting right now," Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige said during a Q&A at the New York Film Academy.

Asked by a fan whether there were any plans for more LGBT characters in Marvel's films, "specifically the T, trans characters", Kevin said: "Yes, absolutely. Yes."

This year, The Eternals will introduce Marvel movies' first gay character.

...

In July last year, Geeks WorldWide suggested that Marvel was seeking a trans woman for a project being filmed in 2020.

They pointed out that the only existing trans superhero in Marvel Comics is the recently introduced Sera - from a group of all-male angels called the Ancharites - who transitioned to a female identity.

Oh great, it's a trans angel. How very subtle.

Meanwhile, the BBC made a new version of Dracula, by the increasingly disappointing team of Mark Gattis and Steve Moffat.

Critics are enthusiastic about it.

Because, surprise!, Dracula's bisexual.

In the three-part series, it is insinuated that Dracula (Claes Bang) has sex with Jonathan Harker (John Heffernan), the solicitor sent to his lair in Romania.

Moffat told The Times, however, that it is not strictly correct to describe Bang's Dracula as bisexual.

"He's bi-homicidal, it's not the same thing," said Moffat. "He's killing them, not dating them."

And implied to have sex with men, too? Well as long as you're not also taking them out on dates.

I could buy the idea that he suck's men's blood too -- why wouldn't he? the blood-drinking may be a metaphor for sex, but it's just a metaphor; in the story's reality, he's killing people for their blood, which gives him his semblance of life -- but Gattis and Moffat gay-baited the hell out of virtually every character in Sherlock and so no, I don't believe they didn't do their One Big Trick here as well.
