Avengers film director confirms plans to introduce LGBT propaganda into their cinematic universe

Bounding Into Comics found more information verifying Marvel studios intends to go further to the left in social justice pandering:
Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo confirmed that Marvel plans to reveal that one of its characters is LGBTQ.

Russo made the confirmation in an appearance with his brother Anthony on EW Morning Live.

At the very beginning of the show, Russo confirms his cameo in the film was the first openly gay character.

He states, “Yes, openly gay character. There has been insinuations about other characters’ sexuality, but this is the first openly gay [character.]

Russo is then asked, “Who else is gay?”

He responds, ‘Uhhh. We’re going to find out.” His brother Anthony adds, “That’s a story for another day.”
One could wonder if it's Northstar from Alpha Flight (and it won't be shocking if they do one day plan to adapt that series as well), though it wouldn't change the fact the exit-from-closet story written by overrated Scott Lobdell from 1992 was sledgehammering awfulness, and later led to the title's collapse. Regardless of who the character is, so this is what the Marvel cinematic universe has come to, and is heading for. As though it's such a big deal, or anybody cares. Besides, history's demonstrated how many of these particular concepts are almost entirely built around sexual orientation of the protagonists, and less about character development and growth, and it's crucial to note those characters like Northstar who're depicted as LGBT don't abandon the lifestyle/ideology (or more precisely, the writers/editors don't change it), the practice is never allowed to be depicted negatively, and that's why there's no serious payoff.

It figures that, with the way Hollywood's been going lately, they'd stoop to this kind of propaganda, and that's why whatever accomplishments the film franchise had until now, it looks like it'll be receding artistically into embarrassment. So Endgame could be the perfect jumping off point for everybody.

" Besides, history's demonstrated how many of these particular concepts are almost entirely built around sexual orientation of the protagonists, and less about character development and growth..."

Ones that have been built around character development and growth, where sexual orientation is only one aspect of that, would include Harley and Ivy, and the version of Element Lad in the Keith Giffen grown up legion stories. Outside the superhero world, of course, there are tons of strong gay comic characters, like in the Dykes to Watch Out For strip, or Doc and Raider, or the women in Jane's World, or Hothead Paisan, to name some of the older more classic strips.
