Popular Game of Thrones Actor Slams MARVEL Over Lack of Gay Actors


The Marvel Cinematic Universe may be the most successful film franchise on the planet, but it's not without its flaws or detractors.

Now much-loved Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington, who plays fan-favourite Jon Snow in the popular HBO series, has come out attacking the lack of diversity in the franchise.
Harington was promoting his new film with director Xavier Dolan, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, in which his title character is a Hollywood star forced to live in the closet to find success, when he made the critcism.
"There's a big problem with masculinity and homosexuality that they can't somehow go hand in hand," Harington told Variety .
"That we can't have someone in a Marvel movie who's gay in real life and plays some super hero. I mean, when is that going to happen?"
Openly gay director Dolan agreed, saying that openly gay actors "might not be able to pursue the same opportunities" and there's still a long way to go.
Thandie Newton, who plays a journalist in the film, compared the issue to the sports world too, where some positive change is already happening.
“It is changing, but we have to get behind those changes and keep pushing it,” the actress said.
