< p>In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Alan Cumming  addressed his queer actor status. He explained that according to him, X-Men 2 is the queerest film he has made. In any case the film that best represents queer culture:

I think X-Men 2, in 2003, is the gayest film I've ever done. There is a queer director, queer actors. And I like the fact that something so common in the world of comics is less common in cinema. In a way, these kinds of films really help people learn more. understand queerness, because we can approach it in an artistic way, and everyone is less afraid of the concept. X-Men is an allegory of queerness, about people who have gifts but must hide them to survive. Queer people understand what this is about.

To summarize quickly and roughly, the community Queeris an inclusive term that encompasses a wide range of sexual identities and genders that do not conform to traditional heterosexual or cisgender norms. It's difficult to know if X-Men 2 is a queer film or not, but it is undoubtedly, qualitatively speaking, one of the best films of the career ;re by Alan Cumming. And he is not the one who will contradict us. In 2013 he already declared:

I really like this film. Enough time has passed. since my first appearance and I would very much like to come back. At the time, it was the beginning of comic book adaptations, so it seemed a little more special than it does today. X2 was a very great film. And not just in the superhero genre. I think it’s one of the films of my career that I consider to be truly successful.

Unfortunately, Alan Cumming never returned to the role. Diablo's. The character was absent from X-Men: The Last Stand, and later it was the young Kodi Smit-McPhee > who reprized the role for X-Men: Apocalypse and X-Men: Dark Phoenix .

But we still have a chance to see Alan Cumming again in the role of Diablo. Indeed, the futureDeadpool & Wolverinewill bring back plenty of old actors from the original X-Men trilogy. For example, Tyler Mane, Aaron Stanford or even Kelly Hu are already in the spotlight. confirmed, so why not Alan Cumming?
