X-Men’s Shawn Ashmore is hoping to come back to the franchise, hoping to play Iceman as gay.
‘Obviously the comics and movies are separate. I wonder what the transition would be because we’ve sort of established Bobby as having a love interest in Rogue and having a love interest in sort of Kitty Pryde, but I think it’d be really interesting,’ Ashmore told IGN.
‘I think it’d probably be the most interesting thing that could happen to Bobby in the films. If they decided to take the story that way, it’d be incredibly dramatic, it’d be an interesting storyline, and it would give Bobby a great character arc.
‘I’d definitely be open to that, but again, I’m not sure if they want to take the character in that direction. I have no idea how they would play that out. I think it’d be very interesting.’
The ice-wielding mutant was outed as gay in an issue of the All New X-Men comics by psychic Jean Grey.
Former Marvel president Stan Lee was first informed of Iceman’s sexuality last month.
He said: ‘I don’t care what happens as long as they tell good stories. And they do.’
