    They didn't explicitly say there's no gay character in the movie but I still highly doubt it. The rumour of there being a gay Asian character came after the actor who's playing Gilgamesh was already cast, that rumour also claimed Conrad Ricamora was going to play the character and he's not in the cast. There was a lot of rumours about The Eternals that turned out inaccurate or outright false, I'm not putting my hope in that rumour of a gay character anymore.

    Gee imagine how bad it would be if they finally cast a gay person as a super powered person and it turned out to be a deviant. Of all the names and of all the groups

    Take this with a huge grain of salt but I found someone on twitter, he seems to be a movie critic or journalist or something (pretty sure he's gay too) and he seems to have inside info and he's been hinting about something with Brian Tyree Henry's character. Someone tweeted about Brian being cast in Eternals and he replied saying "Just wait. It get's better.", also apparently Brian said he "wants to bring a new flavor to Phastos" and the guy tweeted a winky face at that. I might be reaching but I'm starting to wonder if Phastos is going to be the gay character after all.

    Also the alleged casting call for a gay character called "James" described the character as intellectual and Phastos is a scientist and inventor so... I'll happily eat crow if it turns out there's a gay character in The Eternals after all, but I want confirmation ASAP.

    It is superficial, but I can't really blame you 'cause I can't deny I've been low-key hoping Ikaris would turn out to be queer after Richard Madden was attached to the character, LOL. And yeah, it sounds unlikely given the fact that he is probably the leading guy, but who knows, considering Marvel seemed interested in the idea of casting actual queer people to play queer roles in the movie, maybe there was a reason behind Madden's casting. Not saying he's not talented, obviously, but if they can score some extra points by hiring queer actors, it's not a loss for them either.

    But at the end of the day, I'd be glad with any representation they could give us, really. We can be thirsty for hot guys just as much as we're thirsty for represensation.

    Happy MCU-Comics sinergy Serangela!!!

    Yeah, would suck that Tessa isn't trans. And it's just never gonna happen... But I find it somewhat genius lol.
    We never learned her name in the movies, but Tessa actually has referred to her as Brunnhilde on Twitter once. Not sure if she was just assuming or if it was something that someone from Marvel actually told her, but until further confirmation, I'm assuming she is indeed Brunnhilde. It could be a clever twist if they reveal her to be Sera, but I prefer if they don't. I think Sera's origin from the comics is very good and works perfectly well alongside Angela's, so I wouldn't want that to be erased.

    To be fair, the rumor about Conrad Ricamora only said that he was being considered, not that he was cast. It also never made much sense, because they said they were looking for actors in their 20s, and as it was pointed out on this thread itself back then, Conrad wouldn't fit that. And like I said, there's the fact that a casting for Sersi wasn't announced, so it's possible they still have more announcements to make about this movie. I wouldn't freak out just yet. Someone will probably ask Feige about this soon.

    Well, what did I say? Feige was asked about this by Collider and he confirmed not only Valkyrie, but that a character from Eternals will be queer. I'm happy with how blunt he's being about this.

    Now let's just wait and see. Maybe it's someone who hasn't been announced. Maybe it's someone who's been announced already and we simply don't know. Either way, the fact that we're reportedly getting a queer character in the MCU next year is pretty exciting!

    Carol/Valkyrie would be amazing as a couple, but I'm not getting my hopes up on that one. Hey what's Sif up to these days, hmm.

    Finally! Very glad to hear this, thanks for the link.

    Also given the hinting online that I mentioned earlier I'm now assuming that Phastos is the gay character, but we'll have to wait for confirmation on who it is. I know some people are assuming that there might be more Eternals characters to be revealed because Angelina Jolie is playing Thena and not Sersi, but I think Sersi might simply not be in this movie. It's possible that this first Eternals movie will set Sersi up to be in later Avengers movies, but again we'll have to wait and see.

    Equally superficial rebuttal: Since when is Don Lee/Ma Dong-seok not eye-candy? You fellas need to watch "Bad Guys".

    Wasn’t it mentioned in earlier reports that one of the key themes would be a relationship between Ikaris and Sersi? It’s just as likely they’re holding her casting announcement until D23 next month.

    Chris, Tessa and Natalie haven’t seen the script yet but presumably she’s been made aware of a love interest. I’m hoping for Annabelle.

    Carol/Valkyrie sounds like the next Bucky/Steve ship of the MCU, as in, crazy popular in some parts of the fandom, but it'll never be official 'cause it would be too much of a risk.

    There are some unfortunate real life connotations when it comes to queer people being called ''deviants''. Not to mention that there is a long history of deviant villains being queer-coded in fiction. Obviously, queer people should be allowed to be villains and bad people too, but considering Marvel itself has a bad history with this (the only openly queer people we saw in old comics during the Comics Code Authority era were literally a few men who tried to rape Bruce Banner and an old guy who tried to molest Peter Parker), I can understand the importance of making the first LGBTQ impression of the MCU a more positive one.

    I also think Sersi is yet to be announced, but I'm starting to question if the report about her and Ikaris being an item is accurate. After all, there were some mistakes, like reports of Jolie being Sersi, or reports of Millie Bobbie Brown being cast. And you know, I was thinking on how, in the comics, Sersi was more romantically involved with Makkari instead, and how Makkari was genderswapped in the MCU. If they play this by the book, we could end up with a lesbian Sersi/Makkari couple. Well, assuming Sersi's gonna be female, after all. They've changed so much already. lol

    I’m hoping for Annabelle.
    Yes, another one for the Brunbelle team! I really think Annabelle could be a fun character for Taika to use. I would love if they played with the concept of them sharing the same body. Like, some freaky stuff happens and they create some deep bond with each other afterwards. I think it could be funny and romantic.

    A lot of the early info on this movie turned out to be inaccurate though, so I don't know how much validity to put in them. But like I said, we just have to wait and see.

    Don't want Annabelle or Angela as Valkyrie's love interest. Don't care for either one. Give me a Valkyrie/Sif pairing.

    I'll join in on being superficial.
    In a giant multi-movie franchise where 90% of the cast are built like athletes, I'd be a bit annoyed if the first male gay character isn't a ripped hunk. :P

    Historically the people who have hated us have more commonly called us another name that freely gets bandied about by people who don't even identify as gay.
    Personally I'd rather identify as a deviant (especially in a post-Detroit: Become Human world) than as the Q-word.

    The more I see about Eternals, the more I feel like this is going to be the movie that flops (yeah, yeah, I know). I've already seen people starting to point at it and call it the diversity hire cast, and talking about virtue signalling and the rest. That isn't helped by the cast all actively making any story a total back issue to how happy they are with the diverse cast. Diversity is important, and we definitely need more of it in the MCU...but it also should be second to the story of the film, not THE story of the film.

    While I am sure Marvel will do something great with it, and frankly with that cast, it should be really well acted even if it does flop, I just dont feel The Eternals as remotely interesting or franchise'y.

    I dont, yet, see the point of them.

    Also, going to echo the superficial grumbling that if Phastos is the gay character, it's definitely not who I would have wanted to see. I was hoping for Makkari to a) be in the movie and b) be the gay one. But no, gender bending means I can't have that. Again, I'm sure it's a great casting call, but again, meh. It doesnt interest me.

    Just not feeling this one at all.

    I feel like I'm being so negative, but yeah, I just can't find anything here to excite me outside of being a fan of some of the actors.

    Not sure about that, but love more support for my mini crusade to point out that not everyone is happy with that word being so freely used as a catch all!
