Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are hopeful that Marvel may soon take bigger risks and introduce opening gay characters to the films.
Anthony Russo told Collider: “I think this is a philosophy of Marvel, in success it becomes easier to take risks,” he said. “There’s a lot of unconventional ideas in Civil War in terms of what people’s expectations of a superhero movie are, but I think we were able to do that because Winter Soldier worked.”
Joe Russo added that “the chances are strong” that we’ll see an LGBT character in the MCU before saying “it’s important on all fronts” to push for diversity so that “storytelling becomes more interesting, more rich, and more truthful.”
