Doctor Strange star Tilda Swinton is holding out for a gay superhero film. The legendary artist and actress, best known for her roles in Michael Clayton and We Need To Talk About Kevin, is set to appear as The Eternal in upcoming Marvel film Doctor Strange.
In an interview with Out Magazine, Swinton addressed some of the criticism about the film’s race-flipping – with her taking on the revamped role of an Asian comic book character.
Responding to critics, she said: “Anyone speaking up for a greater accuracy in the representation of the diversity of the world we live in has me right beside them. “As someone who has worked from the beginning as an artist within a queer aesthetic, the urgency of that voice is always going to be welcome.
