>>5174026 Because superheroes are an integral part of America's culture, and for the most part LGBT is well represented in comics. If this was translated to screen people could see how progressive not only the comic audience but all those who loves superheroes.
Just more visibility for characters who are already LGBT related. It doesn't have to star them or focus around them, it doesn't even have to involve their romance. X-men has a gay couple. The DC universe has a bisexual female on/off couple. The characters exist, I'd just like to see them in the movies.
The director for the new Deadpool movie already said that he wants it known that he's not going to shy away from representing him as pansexual. Which is cool, and it just adds to the type of humor you find in the comics. It doesn't scream "OMG GAYNESS RIGHT HERE THIS GUY MIGHT SUCK A DICK!!", it's just a part of the character that some writers play on, and some writers don't.
What's wrong with that? I wanna see more gay romance shit cause I like romance shit and wanna self insert but it's hard when it's all hetero. Like how they give you some ugly average dude to self insert as and get the hipster qt girl.
I don't want them to make batman gay. Just make the lesbian batwoman series or see the alternate universe batman marry his alternate universe superman. Ya know cannon gay comic shit.
>>5174026 Because connection? Every time a movie has a subplot about a straight romance it just feels forced and off, I automatically start paying attention to all of the movie problems because I no longer see it as an entertainment piece.
>>5176610 Dont know why it is 52 but go to google type in gay superheros and 52 LGBT Superheroes and Villains | Advocate.com comes up on the list look through the list you get pic of them powers sometimes which comic and their sexuality and sometimes how it fit into the storyline.
>>5173820 Because it's difficult to sell stuff to a minority population and make a profit which outweighs the cost.
Hollywood will sell anything which makes money.
This isn't so much a problem of fear of bigotry (even though bigotry will undeniably reveal itself) as it is a problem of cost-effectiveness.
The majority of people won't fork over the cash to go see a gay superhero movie, especially if the motivation behind creating it is one of pure forced inclusiveness which conceals digging for an opportunity to expose people to gay romance in a convenient excuse like a superhero movie.
You have to sell these ideas to investors. Investors want a return. As noble as your agenda may be, if it doesn't seem profitable, it's not going to attract investors.
how the fuck do you see that is not? Batman >Gay >womderwoman >Gay >Aquaman >Bi oh hell yeah Green Arrow >GAAAAYYYYYY Storm >wow so gay Kitty Pryde >gay2thagay professor X >so gay his head is a beacon of gay shine
Spiderman is the straightest superhero possible and i bet even he's down for a blowie from a pal >bisexual
you need to read between the line, lil fella! Gay has been around for a long long time, you're not inventing anything new here
>>5176978 >Iceman That one was introduced horribly though. See he wasn't always gay, but in a time travel plot, his past self was turned gay by some space magic plot device that randomly tweaks people's appearance or personality, and then Jean read his mind and TOLD HIM he was gay before he could even suspect something was different, so now all his relationships with women up to the present didn't happen. The explanation from Jean is that she didn't want Iceman to waste his time on relationships that have failed consistently in the previous timeline, but he probably wouldn't have been gay under the circumstances of that timeline, and if he was, Jean certainly never bothered to force him out of the closet in the present. If that attempt to make an existing character gay for diversity's sake were any more contrived and transparent, it would involve him being bitten by a radioactive gay.
