Marvel Studios is reportedly looking to cast an openly gay male actor as the lead in upcoming comic book movie The Eternals.
The movie is said to be searching for someone who is between the ages of 30 and 49. He needs to “physically look like a superhero” and will preferably be open about their sexuality.
According to The Hashtag Show, they are open to men of all ethnicity. If they manage to find someone who fits the bill, the actor will mark the first openly gay lead within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The publication also suggests that the studio has already identified a frontrunner.
