‘Captain Marvel 2’ Will Introduce Marvel’s Next Gay Hero, Who Will Play A Major Role In ‘Young Avengers’ – Showbiz Cheat Sheet

It may have taken a long time, but Marvel has been working hard to get better representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including introducing its first LGBTQ characters in Phase 4. While fans are looking forward to watching Valkyrie express her sexuality in Thor: Love and Thunder, Captain Marvel 2 is expected to introduce the studio’s next gay hero. Here’s a look at Marvel’s newest addition, plus how the character will play a big role in Young Avengers.

‘Captain Marvel 2’ to introduce the next gay hero

Inside sources claim that Marvel wants to introduce another
gay hero in Captain Marvel 2.
According to We
Got This Covered
, fans will meet Hulkling in Carol Danvers’s (Brie Larson)
second outing. Despite having a name similar to Hulk, Hulkling actually has no
ties to Bruce Banner. The character also did not come into contact with gamma
radiation.

Instead, Hulkling is actually a Skrull teenager. The Skrulls
played an important part in Captain
Marvel
– and also had a cameo in Spider-Man:
Far From Home
– so it is not that far of a stretch to include Hulking in
the next film.

While it is great to hear about another gay hero coming into the fold, the insider claims that Hulkling will only play a small part in the sequel. It sounds like Marvel will use Captain Marvel 2 as a means to introduce the character, who will go on to have a larger role in Young Avengers.

Just like in the comics, Hulkling will be an openly gay teenager
and is expected to have a relationship with Scarlet Witch’s son, Wiccan. Marvel
will likely introduce Wiccan in WandaVision,
a new series coming to Disney Plus in the near future.

The only sad part about Captain
Marvel 2
is that it might be a few years before we get the sequel. Marvel
has not announced an official premiere date for the project, which could push
it back several years. That said, it looks like Larson is currently training to
play the titular character once again.

The actress has been sharing photos and videos of her latest
workout sessions, something that she did while training for the first movie in
the franchise. This could be a sign that filming for Captain Marvel 2 is
only a few months away.

Larson, unfortunately, has not said anything about filming
the next Captain Marvel flick. It is
possible that she is training for a cameo as Captain Marvel in another Marvel
project. With the studio launching several TV shows on Disney Plus, there are
plenty of opportunities for Larson to reprise the role.

The next movie in the MCU is Black Widow, which is scheduled to open next year. Captain Marvel is not expected to make an appearance in the movie, which started filming earlier this year. Early predictions have Captain Marvel 2 premiering at some point in 2022, though nothing official has been confirmed.

When will we see Captain Marvel next?

Aside from Black Widow,
there are a number of upcoming Marvel movies that could feature a short cameo
by Captain Marvel. The studio is getting ready to release The Eternals, Shang-Chi: And
the Legend of the Ten Rings
, Doctor
Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
, and Thor: Love and Thunder over the next two years.

The studio has not released a lot of details regarding these
projects, but there is a chance that Captain Marvel pops up in at least one of
them. After all, Captain Marvel has already met most of the characters in the
MCU, including Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Doctor Strange (Benedict
Cumberbatch).

1 year ago today, Captain Marvel’s first look was teased.

We still do not know if any characters that are staying on
the big screens will crossover into Marvel’s television world. Marvel is
working on a slew of new shows, including The
Falcon and the Winter Soldier
, Loki,
WandaVision, and Hawkeye. If crossing over is an option, there is a strong chance
that these shows will feature other characters from time to time, including
Captain Marvel.

Larson has not commented on when she will start working on Captain Marvel 2.
