There's no denying that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been championing diversity and representation over the last couple of years. Now, Phase 4 is set to introduce fans to the franchise's second official LGBTQ superhero in America Chavez. The character will be an integral part of the whole multiverse arc and while we still don't know what's next for the character after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a new rumor claims that Marvel Studios will explore her romantic relationship with another beloved hero.

According to a new rumor from MCU Source, the Marvel newcomer, played by Xochitl Gomez will be involved in a romantic storyline with Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop in future projects. The said rumor doesn't go into the specifics but both Bishop and Chavez share a rich comic book history as part of the Young Avengers so the idea isn't exactly out of the question. As it stands, nothing has been confirmed yet so take this one with a huge grain of salt.

While Kate is canonically cisgender in the comics, it was hinted in Young Avengers that she might actually be bisexual. In the series, Kate once asked: “Am I the only straight in the group?" only for America to tell her: "I've seen the way you look at me. You're not that straight." Sure, it may have been just a playful interaction between the two Marvel besties but who knows?

As for MCU Kate's chances of being bisexual, we don't know for sure what the future holds for the character, but it's worth noting that Marvel has been pushing for LGBTQIA+ representation for quite some time now.

Meanwhile, America Chavez will make her MCU debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
