A few days ago, a Vanity Fair article said that early Black Panther footage promised gay moments between Ayo and another Dora Milage, Okoye. - which would make sense, since Ayo is a canon gay character in the comics, where she has a beautiful romance with Aneka, also a Dora Milaje. However, a Marvel representative later stated it wasn’t true and said romance wouldn’t happen.
MCU is probably erasing this representation we could have for the first time after dozens of movies. For how long we’ll have to wait?
I will support this movie no matter what and I ask everyone to do the same. It’s an almost all-black cast in a superhero movie and that’s super important. But we deserve LGBT representation too. And if MCU can have a random romance between Black Widow and Hulk, why can’t it have a romance that already exists in the comics?
