‘Heartstopper’ Star Joe Locke Says His Marvel Role Will “Resonate” With Queer Fans

Joe Locke

‘Heartstopper’ star Joe Locke has spoken up about his role in the upcoming Marvel show ‘Agatha: Coven of Chaos’, and although he’s pretty much kept a lot of things in secret, he revealed that his role will “resonate” with a lot of queer fans.

‘Agatha: Coven of Chaos’ tells the story of WandaVision‘s resident witch Agatha Harkness (to be played by Kathryn Hahn) and her coven. It is based on the Marvel comics of the same name. 

Locke has remained mum on his role, but he says he feels so lucky to be part of the show.

“With Marvel, I was very determined to get the part. I had never been that determined about anything before, which meant that I was putting my energy into it. But I also think I’ve been one of the luckiest people in the world in the past two years,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Locke, who is gay and out, also related a lot to the show. “The show is about misunderstood people and people who are alienated by their society for reasons that they can’t control,” he said. “I think that resonates a lot with the queer community.”

“I think there’ll be some camp,” Locke added.

Although there are not many details out yet, fans are speculating that Locke will play the role of a grown-up Billy Maximoff a.k.a. Wiccan, the son of the Scarlet Witch. If the speculations are true, then it means Locke fulfilled his goal of playing an openly gay character in a Marvel show.

‘Agatha: Coven of Chaos’ will premiere on Disney+ in 2024, and will consist of nine episodes.

Meanwhile, the second season of ‘Heartstopper’ will premiere on August 3 on Netflix.
