*whispers* guys I know we’re all excited about Ezra Miller and everything, but like, he isn’t the first queer superhero actor, (not even the first out superhero actor like):
- Sir Ian McKellen
- Alan Cummings
- Anna Paquin
- Ellen Page
Are just a few off the top of my head?
EDIT: Reblogged this by accident without adding commentary, but what I wanted to say was this: Sorry to our followers, since we reblogged that post about Ezra without considering the other people who were out and who played superheroes, it was inconsiderate and I apologize.
I think the big deal is not just that there is an out queer actor playing a superhero (which we know has been done before), but that an out queer actor is playing an out queer superhero.
