LGBT+ fans of superhero movie Shazam! are going wild after a key character appeared to come out as gay in the hit film.
Shazam!—which came out last week—tells the story of Billy Batson (played by Asher Angel), a teenager who is given super powers and develops the ability to transform into an adult sized superhero by saying “Shazam!”
The film has proven a hit at the box office, and has also stolen the hearts of LGBT+ fans because of a short-but-sweet coming out scene.
In Shazam!, Pedro—Batson’s foster brother—appears to come out as gay.
The revelation comes after Batson teleports himself and his foster siblings to safety. He teleports them to the first place he thinks of—which ends up being a strip club.
However, Pedro (played by Jovan Armand) seems unfazed by the location, and simply says: “Not my thing.”
