But like much of Hollywood, Marvel still lags behind when it comes to queer representation, so it was welcome news when Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige spoke with The Playlist on the future of the MCU following Avengers 4.
Actress Evangeline Lilly didn't hold back when discussing the common complaints of her male Marvel colleagues in an interview to promote Ant-Man And The Wasp.
"I have been hearing Marvel male superheroes complain about their suits for years", she said.
Lilly's candid - and gymnastic - display earned her a gasp of admiration from her interviewer, who appeared momentarily lost for words before offering: "I love you". I don't know. One of the things I think does separate this is this whole thing about family, and parents, and kids, and certainly my relationship with Cassie is a huge component of it.
"It's just not that bad!" she said. I wear heels to work.
"I think we're getting to the point soon where we have so many great female characters that those are just our heroes as opposed to when are they all female, all male", Feige said.More news: Trump calls for deporting migrants 'immediately' without a trial
I found out from the Russos exactly what was going to happen and it wasn't until we shot it on that day we learned what the ending was.
"Whereas, a woman's like, 'I don't know". "You tune it out", she added.
The interviewer subsequently asked: "It's not someone we've seen yet, I'm guessing?"
She was last seen teaming up with Thor to defeat Hela and rescue the surviving Asgardiansm helping them fly away to safety in Ragnorak but the ship was intercepted by the evil Thanos at the end of the movie. "It's 'Ant-Man and The Wasp, ' and so it is important to tell those stories separately and invest in each".
She went on to say that even though other actors may have had a hard time with their wardrobes, she didn't think her outfit was unbearable.
