Kit Harington, one of the stars of Game of Thrones, was outspoken at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) about the lack of LGBT representation in film, and wondered when a major superhero is going to be a gay character played by a gay actor in the Marvel Universe.
According to Variety, he said:
“There’s a big problem with masculinity and homosexuality that they can’t somehow go hand in hand, 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?”
Harington was promoting his new film at the festival, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.
