Kit Harington has called for more LGBT+ representation in superhero movies.
Harington recently starred in Marvel’s Eternals alongside Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos – the first openly queer superhero in an MCU film.
Phastos’ addition the franchise was eagerly welcomed by LGBT+ fans, and it seems that Marvel is keen to correct its dearth of queer representation, with the recent Loki TV series confirming its titular anti-hero as bisexual and gender-fluid.
Eternals star Harington is among those thrilled by Marvel finally moving with the times. In a chat with Out, he said he was “incredibly proud and happy,” to have joined the MCU as it turns its focus towards inclusion.
