Marvel Studios aims to increase the presence of the LGBTQ + collective in his films and series so that his image is representative of today’s society. This has been assured Victoria Alonso, executive vice president of Marvel Studios in statements to the medium Variety. So much so, that in the already released Phase 4 In Disney + and the imminent start of the new films with Black Widow, Eternals and more, many of its characters are already part of this group, in order to offer a wide range of personalities that fit the reality of our days.

And is that one of the latest revelations in this regard is that Loki, who now stars in his own series on Disney +, is bisexual, something that was already known from the comics but had not been discussed until now in the UCM. Also, and throughout upcoming Phase 4 movies like Eternals O Thor: Love and Thunder, openly homosexual characters will appear, something difficult to see a few decades ago or even not many years ago.
This is what Victoria Alonso, vice president of Marvel Studios, has commented in a recent interview with Variety: “We will strengthen the ones that are. We are not changing anything. We are only showing the world who are these people, who are these characters. There are many things ahead of us that I believe will be representative of the world today. We will not hit the nail on the head in the first movie, not in the second, not in the third, not in the first series, not in the second, but we will do everything possible to try to represent it consistently ”.
On the revelation by Loki himself that he is bisexual (as the character assures in an episode of Loki in which he acknowledges that he has had lovers of all kinds and genders), Alonso comments that it was something very natural: “I have to be honest with you, it’s not a big problem. It is what it is when it suits the character. We are not going to do it because it is politically correct or incorrect. It is what it is. Do not forget that we follow our comics. We try to follow them to the letter. So in the comics this is what it was”, Concludes Victoria Alonso.
