Kevin Feige says Marvel movies plans to inject LGBT characters into their new agenda

The social justice propaganda machine at Marvel looks like it's going to add LGBT-based characters along with possible Islamists (which doesn't compute if you take closer look at how the Religion of Peace approaches homosexuality), with film producer Feige telling The Playlist that they'll be adding at least two more to the film projects in preparation:
“With great power comes great responsibility” and that’s what Marvel Studios has had to face in representing communities from all around the world and society. Not only is it the right thing to do, but you sort of owe it to moviegoers when they’ve contributed to over $6.6 billion in U.S. ticket sales alone. And slowly but surely (perhaps a bit too slowly) the Disney division has shepherded films featuring characters such as “Black Panther,” a genuine cultural milestone, and next year’s “Captain Marvel,” its first release with a solo female lead. And there have even been calls from some of the women of the MCU for a movie of their own. While People of Color have increasingly been given the spotlight, one aspect of the Marvel Universe that’s been missing has been an LGBTQ hero or heroine. A head-scratching omission as they have been part of Marvel Comics for decades. After speaking to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige on Sunday it appears that’s about to change.
They also owe it to moviegoers not to bash them over the heads with agendas. Which, now that I think of it, was just what Scott Lobdell did when he "outed" Northstar of Alpha Flight in 1992, and the series collapsed soon after. Forcing ideologies/mentalities down the audience's throats doesn't work well, as that bizarre moment in history ultimately demonstrated. Besides, they haven't had LGBT characters as long as implied. Northstar may have been the earliest in the early 80s, but it was only hinted at, and only the following decade did they actually go more open with it, for all the good it did them in sales. It was only by the turn of the century they began shoving that agenda into their books more often.
The context for the interview was for “Ant-Man and the Wasp” where despite the film’s San Francisco setting there isn’t a gay character to be found (it should be noted it is technically the studio’s first film with a female lead in the title). With Pride month in full effect, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to ask the Feige when its LGBTQ+ fans would get to see themselves represented on screen. Here is exactly how Feige answered that question verbatim.
It would seem they're attacking the setup because it's too surreal for their liberal tastes, is that it? Guess so. Now, here's the interview snippets themselves:
The Playlist: When are we getting a Gay, Bi, LGBTQ, out character in the MCU? Is it even in the works?

Kevin Feige: Yes.

The Playlist: That’s the answer?

Kevin Feige: Yeah, that’s the answer.

The Playlist: It’s not someone we’ve seen yet, I’m guessing?

Kevin Feige: Both.

The Playlist: Both?

Kevin Feige: Both ones you’ve seen and ones you haven’t seen.
And it won't be a shock if they do. It was surely only a matter of time before the SJW propaganda affected this franchise as well, and the film site should be ashamed of themselves for making such a big deal out of it instead of focusing on how well thought out the entertainment value will be. One Angry Gamer commented on the news and said:
The other character who is LGBTQ hasn’t been put to film yet, so it’s going to be someone in either Spider-Man: Far From Home or Captain Marvel. Given the fact that Carol Danvers is portrayed as extra-masculine in the comic books of Captain Marvel, it wouldn’t be entirely shocking if she was the first out and about lesbian in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Comic book fans have long held the belief that this newer Captain Marvel has all the trademark trappings of a lesbian in everything but name. The question is: would Marvel be so bold as to make their leading lady heroine bite the sociopolitical bullet and munch on the carpet of social justice?
Don't be shocked. If they could turn her so horrifically masculine (and in the words of some commentators, "Carl Manvers"), what's to stop them from denigrating Carol ever further on the silver screen? Note of course how some of the news outlets talking about the Captain Marvel project seem to use the illustration of Carol with longer hair, because the more recent ones where she's short-haired would not a good promo campaign make.

If Feige doesn't have what it takes not to pander to these crum-bums, then he's just as unworthy of respect as Joe Quesada and Axel Alonso are. Especially if they "normalize" the ideologies they could wind up clogging their films with. It was only a matter of time before even the Marvel movie franchise started losing its edge in entertainment to SJW politics, and this could be where it all begins to happen.

Jeez, forget the NorthStar incident where he was outed in 1992 and the comics ended up tanking shortly afterwards, you'd think Disney, the owners of Marvel right now, would learn its lesson about catering to SJWs and trying to implement homosexual characters into the Marvel films after the disaster that was both The Last Jedi AND Solo (and the latter is the first ever box office bomb for Star Wars, which can partly be blamed not just on the horrific nature of The Last Jedi's plot, but also on how Kasdan jr. and Glover openly stated that Lando was pansexual literally weeks before release). Then again, this is probably going to be what we're gonna get as long as a radical leftist like Bob Iger is in charge (seriously, why doesn't the shareholders fire that jerk? He's doing even WORSE for the company than Eisner ever did. At least Eisner actually CARED about bringing in a profit).

Just to let you know, Silk from Spider-Man is getting her own movie. https://hellogiggles.com/news/marvel-silk-korean-american-superhero-film/
