"Avengers: Endgame" Puts First Openly Gay Character In MCU On Screen, and SJWs are STILL Angry

You can’t please unpleasable people.

Also, semi-spoilers ahead.

Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of Avengers: Infinity War/Endgame, like to make cameos in their movies from time to time. During Endgame, Joe made an appearance as an openly gay character who was coming to a support group led by Steve Rogers (Captain America) for those having trouble dealing with the Thanos snap that wiped out 50 percent of life in the galaxy.

Russo’s gay character had a handful of lines in the movie about helping move on with the help of a man he was seeing. After those lines, the movie moves on, and that was that. This would mark the first time an openly-LGBT character would make an appearance on screen in an MCU movie.

The Russo’s said they did it to signal to the LGBT community that they were dedicated to diversity.

“Representation is really important,” Joe said to Deadline. “It was important to us as we did four of these films, we wanted a gay character somewhere in them. We felt it was important that one of us play him, to ensure the integrity and show it is so important to the filmmakers that one of us is representing that. It is a perfect time, because one of the things that is compelling about the Marvel Universe moving forward is its focus on diversity.”

Diversity is all well and good so far as it doesn’t become the focus of the story, which too often it does, and I don’t trust modern filmmakers with doing it well…but I digress.

You figure that the introduction to a gay character would actually make the social justice advocates feel like they’re finally having their demands met, but that’s not how the victim industry works. According to the social justice warriors, the first gay character didn’t get enough screen time.

Others had a more humorous, and probably accurate take.

The funny part about all of this is, is that the Russo’s didn’t have to put one in there at all. They did so as a nod to the LGBT community without making it a feature within a movie that was trying to close out a decade’s worth of storylines while saying goodbye to some of its main characters.

Knowing the SJWs as I do, they wouldn’t have been happy unless Captain America grabbed Bucky Barnes and made out with him on screen for at least three minutes while Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) temporarily changed her suit rainbow colored while putting her fist into the air and shouting “LOVE IS LOVE!”

Even then, I’m sure they would have complained that there wasn’t enough time given to other intersectional causes.

Again, you can’t please unpleasable people.
