Will 'Captain Marvel 2' Introduce Another Queer Hero to the MCU?

The world needs more LGBTQ+ superheroes!!

It looks like the Marvel Cinematic Universe really is about to be a whole lot gayer! 

According to sources from We Got This Covered, the forthcoming sequel to 2019's super kickass, Brie Larson suphero flick Captain Marvel is set to introduce another queer defender to the Marvel film world—this time in the form of Hulkling

For those unfamiliar with the character, Hulkling (or Theodore "Teddy" Altman) is a canonically queer Kree hero who made their first appearance in the Young Avengers comic in 2005. He is in a romantic relationship with his fiancé/fellow Young Avenger Wiccan (aka William "Billy" Kaplan) and their pairing is a favorite amongst many LGBTQ+ comic fans.

While we wish it was Carol Danvers herself coming out, it's nice that the MCU, which already has the bisexual Valkyrie (who fans often ship with Captain Marvel) and the still-uknown, married, gay character in 2020's The Eternals, is set to get more diverse, more inclusive, and more queer AF—especially with a character we haven't really seen on-screen yet. While a hard date has yet to be set when it comes to Captain Marvel 2, you best believe if these Hulkling rumors are true, we'll be the first in line at theaters to see it!
