Ezra Miller is not the first LGBTQ actor to be cast in a major superhero franchise. Alan Cumming and Anna Paquin are both bisexual and were in the XMen franchise as Nightcrawler and Rogue.
Update: AND Ian McKellen AND Ellen Page. So clearly the XMen franchise is not very straight.
and they were (mostly) directed by Bryan Singer, in his own words “quite bisexual”
"We had a really funny day. Peter (Capaldi) makes me laugh a lot because he’s always getting lost, so you can’t keep your eyes off him for two minutes or else he goes off for a wander. On set, part of the runner’s job is to keep their eyes on us so they know where in the building Peter and I are at any one time. So it’s a fun game to try and lose them and run away. And also, I learned you can hide in a Dalek which no-one ever thinks to look in so that’s fun!"
