Apparently, it wasn’t diverse enough for Captain Marvel star Brie Larson. The actress told Variety that she’s pleased by the success of her film, but there’s still more work to be done for LGBTQ people in the Marvel cinematic universe.
“I’m happy to be on the forefront of the normalization of this type of content and to prove once again that representation matters. Diverse storytelling matters, the female experience matters, and these are markers,” Larson said. “So it’s something I’ve always known and I think a lot of people always knew, but this is just normalizing.”
And when Marc Malkin, who was interviewing her said he’d never seen a superhero character that was gay, Larson responded that made her sad.
“That breaks my heart to hear that, because there’s no reason,” Larson said. “I don’t understand how you could think that a certain type of person isn’t allowed to be a superhero. So to me it’s like, we gotta move faster. But I’m always wanting to move faster with this stuff.”
Rumors have been swirling that Marvel will cast gay characters in upcoming films, so Larson probably won’t have to wait too long before she gets her wish,
