Jungle Cruise spoilers and fan theories
So far we know that Jack Whitehall’s character will be gay, with the movie featuring a coming out scene with Johnson. There was some controversy when this information was released in December 2018, as critics were skeptical about a straight man playing a gay character. Historically, this will be the second time Disney has portrayed a gay character in a live action Disney movie. The other example is Le Fou, played by Josh Gad, in the adaptation of Beauty and the Beast which came out in 2017.
