Elliot Page Introduces Us to ‘Umbrella Academy’s’ Viktor Hargreeves
Elliot Page’s character on Netflix’s hit comic book adaptation, The Umbrella Academy, will be coming out as transgender on the show to reflect the actor. With the third season of the series’ June debut quickly approaching, Page finally introduced us all to Viktor Hargreeves.
From what trailer for this upcoming season has indicated, this is likely to be a story arc for the character, and I think that is a beautiful way to allow audiences to go through the journey. I am especially glad that Netflix, the team on Umbrella Academy, and everyone else has been so supportive of Elliot.
It warms my heart, and this will be a major moment for trans representation in pop culture. So many are about to see themselves be a hero, and that is absolutely a fantastic balm on what has been a very exhausting few years in the real world.
What will be going down on season three?
After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?(via Bleeding Cool)
We will get to officially meet Viktor and continue the Umbrella Academy journey June 22.
