Watching comic book movies (and their tv adjacents), DC and Marvel, Sony, Fox and all the others. I have noticed that there are literally no queer people. No lesbians. No gay men. No bisexual people. No transgender people. No asexuals. No anyone else. Literally none.
We can go down the whole list of recent movies and we'd see none. It's so terrible. And it's not like they don't have the queer characters to utilize. The Comic world is full of them.
Iron man? None.
Captain America? Officially none but I tell myself that Captain America and Falcon are in a relationship. (Cap 2? That was a romantic movie. "On your left")
Guardian's of the Galaxy?? I'll say no. But with so many aliens, the possibilities and ways of having queer representation is endless. (also why is that aliens still have Terrian human gender binaries like girl and boy??
Spider man films? A big fat no. (although in Amazing spiderman 2 it felt like Harry Osborne should have been a love interest for peter but that was just my wild imagination taking over a bad movie trying to make it better)
Batman? Superman? Green Lantern? No. Nah. Noot. (But maybe Batman vs. Superman will end with them having makeup sex. Fingers crossed)
X-men? None. Which is the biggest irritation. It's X-men for Jean's dead ashes sake! They have a plethora. I loved quicksilver in the Days of Future past. But if they weren't going to specifically state that he was Magneto's son and not have Wanda and they just really needed a speedster, they could have North star. Plus it wouldn't confuse people with Quicksilver in the Avengers. (i honestly believe the only reason Quicksilver died was becasue of some corporate back deal)
Fantastic four? None. Maybe in the new movie. Susan and Johnny have two gay dads who adopt them. (doubt it)
In Agents of Shield. I haven't seen one. I can't even remember if there were any at all. (though I ship Fitz and Mack). Which is ridiculous cause it's a tv show that's been here for a long ass time that has featured of plethora of Marvel characters. It's like? Why haven't they done it yet?
I didn't see any in Daredevil (i stopped watching after midway episode 5. I don't' like the series so if there is queer representation afterwards please do tell me.)
Agents of Carter? Yeah right. (honestly. I thought we were going to find out that Agent Jack Thompson was on the downlow. He's so chauvinistic to the point where I thought he was compensating for something, like his adoration of the male physique).
In Flash. There's the police captain who talks about his invisible fiancé who we finally see later on and gets saved by flash. But honestly the captain feels so forced in like they really just wanted to throw in some representation. But with the drought of queer representation in comic book media. I shan't complain. I'm actually happy they had the afterthought.
The character Pied Piper was gay. He was a douche and an asshole. He made gay pun jokes just to make people uncomfortable. Fucking awesome. I loved it. I want more of him. MORE.
The character Captain Cold is played by gay man. I wonder if they'll make the character himself gay. I kind wanna have him be in a relationship with heat wave. Like fire and ice, completely dysfunctional relationship.
Arrow had Sarah and Nissa. YAY. I wanted more. They didn't give me more. I hope I see more Nissa and she gets a new gal thang.
And then there is Constantine.
Oh Constantine :)
My sweet sweet Constantine. Oh precious Constantine Constantine Constantine :) :)
THEY HAD THE AUDAICTY TO STRAIGHTWASH HIS CHARACTER. He is a bisexual man. They had the blatant nerve. I mean, didn't it occur to producers and writers that keeping his bisexuality would have generated bigger buzz for the show. I mean, he'd be the first bisexual male character starring in his own show on prime time network. The first. The publicity. They had some fricking nerve. (anyways that show was doomed to fail, Fridays on NBC. They had the nails in hand on episode one. Although it actually liked despite the straight washing)
From my memory, in all of the movies and tv shows there has only been 5 queer characters. Three from Flash and not even main or secondary characters. Two from Arrow which are secondary characters.
Honestly! What is the hold up? It's 2015.
