People waiting for queer heroes to debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will have to wait a while longer – as its film slate has been hit with delays due to coronavirus.
Gay Marvel hero Phastos won’t debut until 2021.
The Eternals initially set for release in November, will introduce the superhero Phastos, who Marvel boss Kevin Feige has already confirmed will be in a same-sex marriage.
The film is set to make big-screen history for Marvel with its first visible LGBT+ superhero, including an on-screen kiss with his husband, played by Haaz Sleiman.
And Valkyrie won’t ‘find her queen’ until 2022 at the earliest.
With Marvel bumping down every film a spot in the queue, that film is now expected to be held until February 2022.
