Russo-brothers said on EW Morning Live that one of the characters already featured in Marvel project would be revealed as gay in an upcoming film.

The topic arose when hosts Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw asked Joe about his cameo as a grieving gay man in a therapy session in the Avengers. Joe the said,

It was an integral scene to show how the world was reacting to what happened at the end of the Infinity War.

He further told the hosts his character was first "openly gay" in the Marvel franchise. Joe said,

There've been insinuations about other characters' sexuality, but this is the first openly gay character.

Shaw also asked Joe if there were other gay characters to which Joe responded saying: "We're going to find out!"

Last summer, Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President told two openly gay characters to be unveiled, 'both ones you've seen and ones you haven't seen."

Where Joe Russo's character is considered one we hadn't seen before, there is someone we already know to come out of the closet, but who? For this, we might wait for a few months or Marvel makes another revelation.
