2. FILM: Thor: The Dark World
Last month comic book scribe Al Ewing revealed on his personal blog that not only was Thor’s brother, Loki, bisexual in the Marvel Comics universe, but Ewing would be “touching on that” in his upcoming comic series Loki: Agent of Asgard. The timing of that revelation about Marvel’s god of mischief couldn’t be better for LGBT fans, as the Thor: The Dark World began playing in theatres across the nine realms today. Though Loki’s sexuality hasn’t been highlighted in Marvel’s film universe, the character is heavily featured in this sequel, and Tom Hiddleston’s portal of the legendary Norse god leaves room for viewers to draw their own conclusion as to whether or not Loki swings both ways. Early reviews are also touting Hiddleston’s performance as one of the movie’s highlights. — Jase Peeples
