Marvel Cinematic Universe will soon include two openly LGBTQ characters

In an interview covering Ant-Man & the Wasp, the Playlist asked Feige about the future of LGBTQ representation in the MCU.

One of the best characters in the film is Ava. Different sized movies, different tonal movies and we love the notion of the one-two punch of Infinity War and Ant-man and the Wasp, something in which the universe itself is shattered and many audience members are shattered when they leave the theater and then here is the antidote to that. This sequel - once again with Reed in the director's chair - follows in the tradition of sequels to Phase 1 Marvel movies by being an nearly completely different animal.

Fans quickly realised that none of the original Avengers characters had perished, leaving them behind to tackle Thanos once more and hopefully avenge their fallen comrades. In the video, he said, "I'm a little confused [about Spider-Man 2] because I died so I don't really know how it comes into play". Shouldn't the world be in chaos??

The suggestion that Far From Home could happen before Infinity War is a nice deflection, but ultimately is probably not true. It's not THAT hard for these things to fit together. If you want to forego the first film, the sequel does give you a quick refresher on how Hope's mother became trapped in the Quantum Realm. And they believe (for extremely convoluted reasons) may have imprinted a kind of "quantum map" to find her in Scott's subconscious.

That's the look of "Yeah, I just stole your movie". This includes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). The actress exudes a badass confidence and energy that basically makes Ant-Man and the Wasp feel like it should have been called The Wasp, Featuring Ant-Man.

"If I am chosen to do a role, it means I believe her".

But even if you're not a Marvel diehard who's spent the past two months bursting into tears at the sight of a dust bunny, it's just plain fun to spend some time with mostly likable people doing mostly good things for other people that they care about.

Considering these movies are positioned as the "sherbert course" of the MCU, especially, yeah.

Like the first movie, director Peyton Reed ("Bring It On") mixes action and laughs to deliver one of the most enjoyable moviegoing experiences you'll have this summer. And a lot of it is really cool! We want to see the character kicking butt!

Lily is very good as The Wasp.
