Things We Saw Today: Vulture Ranks the Gayest Marvel Films and the #1 Pick Is Genius
Vulture has made Pride Month a little bit brighter with its ranking of the “gayest Marvel movies.” Kyle Buchanan’s list is beautiful, stupendous, and delightful in so many ways. I won’t quote too much here because really, working through this article is half the pleasure, but here are some highlights:
– Edward Norton simply doesn’t have queer appeal, and if dating Courtney Love can’t give that to you, nothing can! (-200)
– This movie labors so hard to give Thanos a motivation when they could have just gone with “I love jewels.” (-75)
– Briefly features a Mara sister (+40 but no offense to Kate, it would be more points if they got Rooney).
– Assumes we want to see Benedict Cumberbatch shirtless and sometimes it’s nice to be invited to the party even if you don’t actually want to go. (+11)
