If you had your suspicions that Benoit Blanc was queer in the movie Knives Out, you have a solid intuition because it turns out Craig’s character has been confirmed as such. Director and creator of the Knives Out franchise, Rian Johnson, confirmed the fact during a press conference at the London Film Festival in October. A scene in the new film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery implies Blanc is living with a man, and after the film was shown at an early screening, the question was asked if Blanc was queer – “Yes, he is obviously,” Johnson replied.
The article doesn’t reveal who Blanc lived with, but Craig hinted at the press conference that it’s someone very sympathetic. “Don’t tell anything [but] who wouldn’t want to live with that person,” Craig said. Johnson adds, saying, “And there’s no one in the world I can think of who gives me more joy when I’m with Benoit Blanc. Who Blanc’s Lover Ends It’s still a mystery, but fans will find out who that is when the film hits theaters in November.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is slated for release in select theaters on November 23rd and then on December 23rd on Netflix.
