    Marvel announces lesbian subplot of next Thor, teases future LGBT content in movies



    Source: Lifesitenews

    The wildly-popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, previously one of Hollywoods last bastions of entertainment that stayed mostly above the political and cultural fray, dipped its toe in LGBT representation with Aprils Avengers: Endgame, and is slated to introduce a lesbian subplot with the next sequel for one of the teams founding superheroes, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth).

    Marvel Studios announced its next two years worth of films and streaming series this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, concluding with Thor: Love and Thunder in November 2021. The film will see Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) continue as ruler of the titular heros surviving Asgardian people on Earth, including a development that LGBT activists have long demanded, but will likely surprise mass audiences.

    As new king, she needs to find her queen, Thompson told the crowd, io9 reports. That will be her first order of business. She has some ideas. Keep you posted. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige subsequently confirmed the statement, but wouldnt confirm the size or prominence of the subplot. How that impacts the story remains to be seen with that level of representation youll see across our films, not in just Thor 4, he said.

    Love and Thunder will also adapt a recent story from the comics in which Thors former love interest Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) takes over his name and powers, leading some left-wing fans to hope that she may become Valkyries queen (Foster has been depicted as straight in both the comics and previous films, however, so this is pure speculation for the moment).

    LGBT activists previously assailed Marvel for deleting a shot from the previous Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok, that would have hinted at Valkyries sexual orientation by showing a woman exiting her bedroom, as well as similar omissions from other films.

    The studio extended an olive branch to representation enthusiasts with a brief scene in Avengers: Endgame in which an unnamed man (played by co-director Joe Russo) at a group therapy session mentions going on a date with another man. Despite Marvel declaring that the moment demonstrated its commitment to diversity, many LGBT activists condemned it as too small and insubstantial.

    While comic-book and geek-culture blogs are teeming with enthusiastic headlines about the news, not all fans are welcoming the new direction.

    Staring at the floor, I began to realize that whatever good the Marvel Cinematic Universe brought to the world would be undone by the heathens of Hollywood, William Usher wrote at One Angry Gamer. Whatever memories or joy that you thought you could embrace from the previous three phases of storytelling, are gone. Your joy is being systematically erased by the diversity agenda, and Phase 4 will taint these legacy characters forever.
    Remember that all worlds draw to an end and that noble death is a treasure which no-one is too poor to buy. - C. S. Lewis, The Last Battle

    Unsurprising actually. Of course Marvel comics always had a cultural marxist/SJW undertone, but it had to be packed in a form that would make it appeal to a wider audience. However in the last decade or so, that changed when Marvel comics came under control of someone that wanted to push the SJW agenda hard. And the result was that long time Marvel comic buyers where alienated and sales dropped (even more?). And it have been slipping into the MCU almost from the beginning (looking at you, Thor-movie) and with this move it will just come more to the foreground.

    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    The lesbian angle was already hinted at in Thor: Ragnarok.

    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    As soon as they came out with black panther I stopped watching Marvel movies.
    I think I saw an ant man movie since then but i haven't paid for anything since.
    No SJW movies for me.

    I used to read Marvel comics as a kid but gave up shortly after the Black Panther appeared.

    I think the Black Panther movement in the USA may even have been inspired by this character. It fits chronologically.

    Marvel is solidly Jewish and Left wing, now. Didn't used to be this way. I watch NONE of these movies. They don't get my money.

    Need to look it up. It is mostly based on what I have read on the opinions of comic books readers I have read (example on quora and this youtube channel that among subjects tackles SJW Marvel's bad writting).

    Now a quick I could not any usable figures, since all I found either was talking about money made (and considering comics have more expensive can be partly explained by that) or was talking about Marvel's market share compared to that of DC. So I have to restate that based on what I have heard from comic book readers the sale of Marvel comic has dropped, but I can not quickly find figures to proof or disproof it.

    Edit. Did found this article that stated that 2018 was the worst for comic sales since 2011, but did not provide figures comparing it to previous years in way that would serve this discussion.

    In the mid-90's Marvel actually went bust!

    I think it's the films that are providing their main source of income nowadays. I'm pretty sure that comic sales are in decline.
