‘Captain Marvel’ chief says ‘the world is ready’ for an openly-gay superhero

On Thursday, Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel officially joined the cavalcade of superheroes that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Now, the studio’s production chief says it’s time for another win in the superhero diversity column.

Speaking on the red carpet for the highly-anticipated premiere of “Captain Marvel,” Marvel’s production head Victoria Alonso was asked if it’s finally time for an openly gay superhero to join the “Avengers” on-screen.

“The world is ready, the world is ready,” she responded to Variety.

The outlet notes that Alonso’s comments may be a hint toward the upcoming Marvel film “The Eternals” and rumors that the studio is looking to headline the ensemble with an LGBTQ character. Unfortunately, she would not confirm or deny that the casting process was underway.
