Kit Harington would like to see more sexually diverse Marvel Universe

Kit Harington has spoken up and called on Marvel bosses to do a better job of representing the gay, lesbian and bisexual community in their blockbusters.

Harington was at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, promoting his new movie The Death and Life of John F. Donovan (2018), and he seized the opportunity to address some serious questions regarding film industry.

Harington said: There's a big problem with masculinity and homosexuality that they can't somehow go hand in hand. That we can't have someone in a Marvel movie who's gay in real life and plays some superhero. I mean, when is that going to happen.

Marvel is, however, trying its best to make their movie palette more diverse, by filming female-led movies like the upcoming Captain Marvel (2019), and also movies that are more open to the people of color, such as Black Panther (2018).

But, the Marvel studios is always under fire, because they are constantly erasing queer characters from their superhero flicks. Such was the case with Valkyrie, from Thor: Ragnarok (2017). In the comic books, Valkyrie is bisexual, and that was completely cut from the final movie.
