Marvel Studios Exec Vows to Cast Transgender Superheroes

(Breitbart) Marvel Studios executive Victoria Alonso has dismissed poor reviews for Eternals, promising “diversity and inclusion is not a political game for us” as she told viewers to prepare for more of the same wokeness more often.

Alonso delivered the remarks at the Outfest Legacy Awards on Saturday night at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Variety magazine reports she warbled a verse of B.o.B’s “Beautiful Girl All Over the World” to her wife, Imelda Corcoran, before offering her views about LGBTQ equality and “visibility”…

Alonso then offered a mea culpa to transgender performer Rain Valdez, saying, “I see you. You’re not alone. I perhaps have not 100 percent done right by you.”

She went on to indicate she will lobby for on-screen transgender characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: “I can assure you for as long as I am at Marvel Studios, I will do right by you. One of the greatest gifts that we can give each other is in the belonging, is knowing that you do belong. Don’t walk in thinking you don’t belong.”

Her speech follows the release of Eternals, the latest Marvel Studios epic featuring the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first gay superhero that comes complete with a gay kiss.

As Breitbart News reported, the Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ latest superhero epic is struggling to find an audience and is clocking in as one of the worst-rated and lowest-attended Marvel films at theaters.
