Homo Heroes: Could the Avengers Go Gay?
The Avengers

The Avengers

Paramount/Disney
The Avengers is a global box office smash. According to Deadline Hollywood, it did $67 million on Friday alone and is expected to total $160 million for the weekend.

Since it opened a week earlier overseas, that would give it a mind-boggling $370 million worldwide in a single week.

It's something that's never been seen before. But here's something else that hasn't been seen on the big screen: A super gay superhero.

Could it happen?

One famous comic book artist has already envisioned some of the biggest names in the Avengers as gay superheroes, including Iron Man, Thor and Captain America.

Too bad he didn't include Black Widow in his list -- there's a movie I'd pay to see.

Anyway, if you want to know what the key players in "The Avengers" would look like if they came out while in costume, click "next."
