Hercules Might Be Gay in Marvel Studios' Upcoming The Eternals
Hercules Might Be Gay in Marvel Studios' Upcoming 'The Eternals'
If the rumors turn out to be true, he could be the first openly gay superhero in the MCU!
We might not have to wait too, too long until we finally getting to see an openly gay superhero in the MCU!
According to ComicBook.com, powerful Greek god Hercules is set to be the male lead in the upcoming film The Eternals—but the best part about this news is that, according to rumors reported on MCU Cosmic, Hercules will be openly gay!
Marvel Studios has made big strides for more diversity in their films in the past few years, featuring badass lead women, characters of color, and a bisexual heroine in recent titles like Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Thor: Ragnarok. But the studio has yet to have an openly gay, male actor play an openly gay, male superhero role, so the news of Hercules' inclusion in The Eternals (which already has big names like Angelina Jolie attached to it) is HUGE.
There's still no word about who could possibly even play the role of a queer Hercules, but we know the super ripped and out Star Trek: Discovery heartthrob Wilson Cruz is out there shooting his shot to be in The Eternals, so we'd be totally here for that!
