Earlier this week, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that the studio already has plans to include their first transgender character in the MCU, and it will be happening "very soon." He also mentioned that it will be in the movie that they are shooting right now, which led fans to assume that the character will be featured in The Eternals. But as it turns out, we're gonna have to wait a little bit longer than that.

According to a report from Variety, their sources have told them that Feige "only intended" to respond to the first question, which was about LGBTQ+ representation, and that he didn't "mean to imply" that the character will be making its debut in the MCU "very soon."

In a previous interview with Good Morning America, Feige revealed that the said character will be married and he also has a family, but that's just "a part of who he is." Although the trans character won't be introduced in the near future, fans are very much excited to see this happen. Even Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo is ecstatic to hear about the news.

Having the first trans character is just one of the many things that Marvel Studios does in their efforts at representation and inclusivity. The Eternals is said to feature a queer superhero, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' cast is 98% Asian, as well as the highly-anticipated Ms. Marvel series, which has a Muslim lead character.

Phase 4 of the MCU begins when Black Widow premieres on May 1, 2020. The Eternals is scheduled to debut on November 6, 2020.
