There was so much buzz that the latest installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise would have the first queer character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (Notice a trend here? It’s not the last.)
When the movie came around, however, whatever queer subtext was promised was SO subtle, it went over almost everyone’s head. The best guess? Sylvester Stallone’s character, who has some canon gender identity issues. But as is common in comics, calling the character transgender is a BIG stretch.
