Tom Holland Reiterates There Should Be a Gay Spider-Man One Day

As the*Marvel Cinematic Universe*as well as other cinematic representations of Marvel characters expands, so does the diversity of those worlds. In the MCU specifically, we will soon be getting the first openly gay character in a lead role in*The Eternals. It's not too hard to imagine that, after that, we'll see more LGBTQ+ representation in superhero films and for*Spider-Man: Far From Home*star*Tom Holland, it's something he welcomes -- and is even all for a gay Spidey.

In a new video with*GQ*in which Holland goes undercover on social media to answer fan questions, Holland replied to one fan on Twitter who asked, "didn't Tom Holland say he wanted Spider-Man to be gay?" In his reply Holland clarified his previous statement a bit, but maintained that he does, indeed, hope to someday see a gay version of Spider-Man on screen.


:The question asked was 'do you think there should be a gay Spider-Man?' I think that would be a very progressive way to kind of create a new character," Holland said. "So, yeah, I think there should be one day, and I hope that I get to share the screen with that person."

Back in July, Holland told Gay Times that he was supportive*of the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- and other major franchises -- pursuing greater diversity that includes not only people of other races and

"Yeah of course. I can’t talk about the future of the character because honestly, I don’t know and it’s out of my hands. But I do know a lot about the future of Marvel, and they are going to be representing lots of different people in the next few years. The world isn’t as simple as a straight white guy. It doesn’t end there, and these films need to represent more than one type of person."

And Marvel seems to be moving ahead with representing more than one type of person. Last month, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that*The Eternals will feature an openly gay character who is married and has a family of their own.

"He's married, he's got a family, and that is just part of who he is," Feige said.

Notably, Feige did not reveal who that openly gay family man is but fans have been speculating for some time that it could be Ikaris, who will be played by*Game of Thronesalum Richard Madden. Ikaris is one of the main characters in Jack Kirby's original*The Eternalscomic.


Whoever*The Eternals' openly gay character ends up being, it's important that it's just one facet of who the character is. It's also important that the character is the first, not the only. Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie will also fall under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. Thompson revealed at San Diego Comic-Con that Valkyrie, who was last seen being made King of Asgard by Thor at the end of*Avengers: Endgame, will be looking for a Queen to rule alongside her in New Asgard in*Thor: Love and Thunder. It's a move that will technically make Valkyrie the MCU's first LGBTQ+ hero.

I've never heard of Tim Holland. That's like a 'direct to video' kind of movie. ticket sales would tank at the box office, especially in the Muslim countries where Sharia laws are against fudge packing.

If Spiderman was never gay in the comics why should he be in the movies. I could understand if there was a wall crawler that was (not Peter of Miles) a member of that community I wouldn't care if they put them in the movies or tv, but I'm also one of the people who would like to see Idris Elba as James Bond.

there are 100 different versions of spiderman so i don't see why not if its an original character like ben reilly and miles morales. making peter parker or the other already existed spidermen gay just because ain't the move.

i know they are testing it with that chick in thor but if they want to do an lgbt character for a solo then try ms america. at least she is gay already

You know it's coming though, probably a whole bunch of existing characters in Marvel and DC, that folks are looking to insert gay on.

It's a only matter of time. The only way to combat it, is just don't support it.

Once it starts hitting their bottomline, they will wise up.
