Did the entire media just forget that Ian McKellen is gay or? Because like, yay on Ezra Miller, long may his banner fly, but he’s so not the first queer person in superhero movies. Not by a long shot.
Is it because he’s young and hot? It’s because he’s young and hot and marketable, isn’t it.
It’s because he’s the first to play a major superhero and is headlining his own blockbuster movie (and will most likely have his own franchise)… not that he’s the first ever to play a super powered comic book character.
"I like killing people because it is so much fun. It is more fun than killing wild game in the forest, because man is the most dangerous animal of all. To kill something is the most thrilling experience. It is even better than getting your rocks off with a girl. The best part of it is that when I die, I will be reborn in paradise and all that I have killed will become my slaves. I will not give you my name because you will try to slow down or stop my collecting of slaves for my afterlife."
