Marvel Studios Accused Of Cancelling TV Series Because It Was “Too Gay”

Kevin Biegel, the former showrunner/writer for the Marvel live-action series New Warriors  has made public statements accusing Marvel Studios of cancelling the show before it premiered for being “too gay.

Best known for creating the series Cougar Town Biegel,, took to Twitter last Wednesday night to complain alleging that a homophobic executive took aim at the series for being “very very proudly gay.” before thinking twice and deleting his tweets.

A SINGULAR power that be killed that show, Because it was too gay. A rich, straight, Brentwood turd. He got fired for being vile at his company. We, on the other hand, live.

Biegel didn’t reveal thee exact identity killed the series but given the use of ‘he’ pronounces and the fact that the executive was fired from the company could illuminate who it was that killed the series. While this is purely speculation, one suspect could be Joseph Loeb, the former Executive Vice President of Marvel Television. Loeb stepped down from the company when Kevin Feige was appointed Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment but many saw the decision as him being let go from the company.

This is only the latest in a long line of counter-productive moves from Marvel Studio’s who have in the past been accused of “gay baiting” by the mega hit giant for announcing lesbian, gay, and bisexual characters that never play out their sexuality or have it even mentioned on-screen.
