There has been news from Kevin Feige himself, that transgender characters will be introduced to the MCU and are a part of a film shooting recently already.
Mark Ruffalo along with Feige both emphasized their support for improving the diversity in the MCU industry, which is actually a noble cause.
It’s being assumed that transgender casting will be there in the very next movie, maybe in Thor: Love And Thunder, where Mark Ruffalo is in support of the decision and has a long history of promoting equality in diversity through social media.
It is also said that in the next movies there will be a female director in Eternals and Black Widow. Falcon and Loki have female directors.
Some criticism persists but many of them are supporting this progressive cause and Ruffalo himself thanked fans for this.
We will get to know about the transgender characters in Marvel, along with a presence of two gay couples. Introducing the LGBTQA+ community to the comics and movies is a great way to raise awareness and acceptance among the youth.
These movies and comics have a large audience of children and normalizing such concepts to children would definitely bring up a more accepting and loving generation of kids.
This is a great step up taken by Feige for improving diversity in the industry.
