[VIDEO] How Gay Will Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” Be?

Penny DreadfulEternity can be so boring without some variety

Showtime’s Penny Dreadful is coming in May, with a story made up of public domain monsters, and villains like Dorian Gray and Frankenstein’s Monster. The battle of the shadow world seems somewhat subdued in the first trailer, with hints of blood worship, threats in the shadows and sex. Sex in many varieties. It appears to have gay sex above, with Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney, who starred on Broadway in Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark), and I know that I saw two women making out in the trailer. The question is if Showtime will follow through with the gay content that Oscar Wilde meant for his eternally beautiful character, or if they chicken out like Starz did with Da Vinci’s Demons.

The fact that they put the homoerotic imagery in the trailer is a good sign. Besides, who doesn’t want to see Spider-Man get a little man-on-man action?


Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
