3. Blu-ray: Man of Steel

It doesn’t take X-ray vision to see why many LGBT people are drawn to the colorful world of comic book superheroes. From characters who struggle with secret identities to mutants who are despised by society because they are born different, the genre is practically overflowing with queer metaphors. Man of Steel highlights several of these found in Superman’s mythology, making the film an excellent gay allegory for a modern audience. The film, now available on Blu-ray and DVD, also offers a superpowered serving of eye candy for gay and lesbian fans in the form of hunky Henry Cavill as the Last Son of Krypton, Antje Traue as the deadly Faora-Ul, and Amy Adams as the no-nonsense Lois Lane. — Jase Peeples
