The 34-year-old actor added that the shadowhunter and the warlock of Brooklyn will discover what it’s like to be with each other and in the process, learn more about their partner.
Of course, this journey could bring about problems in their relationship as they are extremely different. Fans of the show will remember Alec as the serious, responsible first born of the Lightwoods, while Magnus has always been opulent, quirky and anything but conventional.
However, this difference in their personalities could only pose a minor problem. While describing Magnus and Alec’s relationship, Shum Jr. told Hollywood Life, “It’s like that Paula Abdul song "Opposites Attract.” That has a lot to do with it because there’s so much that can be learned from both sides. Even this guy that’s been around for so long, there’s a lot that he can learn from Alec and vice versa.“
Nonetheless, Shum Jr. also indicated that his character’s dark past could ruin his present. The warlock, who has been alive for 400 years, is really a "tormented soul” in the actor’s words and perhaps his residual feelings from his varied experiences might affect his happiness with Alec. However, does Alec have the will power and the emotional maturity to stand by his love?

After the final conflict between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark in Captain America: Civil War, Cap drops his shield to the ground, leaving it and his position within The Avengers behind.
He may have also left the Captain America identity behind with it.
“I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity,” said Joe. “[It’s] him admitting that certainly,the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making.”
