Throughout the course of comic book history, her sexuality is exposed as a lesbian and so is expected in the movie. It definitely is good news for the upcoming generations as the movies industries are welcoming the marginalized communities- women, people of color, LGBTQ community, by reprising them as the lead characters which are playing a huge impact on people to open up about their identity.

The recent and upcoming years could be an evolution of the movie industry as the LGBT content are being indulged in the superhero cinema. Recently Marvel launched their first ever female lead superhero movie Captain Marvel and now that is heavy rumors that the Marvel's upcoming The Eternals will feature the MCU's first gay lead movie.
