The star of Spider-Man: Far From Home told People magazine he is more than on board with Marvel bringing an LGBT superhero franchise into the mix.
Holland assured the Sunday Times that he would “of course” be okay with Spider-Man/Peter Parker being gay. The movement for an LGTBQ superhero has exploded as Marvel president Kevin Feige recently promised to up its representation.
“I can’t talk about the future of the character because honestly I don’t know and it’s out of my hands,” Holland, 23, said after being asked about a gay Spider-Man. “But I do know a lot about the future of Marvel, and they are going to be representing lots of different people in the next few years.”
Holland added, “The world isn’t as simple as a straight white guy. It doesn’t end there, and these films need to represent more than one type of person.”
Spider-Man: Far from Home is in theaters now.
