Daniel Craig as Benoit Blanc standing in a pool holding a drink and wearing sunglasses in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery



It’s been three years since fans have been able to check back in with Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc but, now, the beloved southern detective is finally back in the follow-up, Glass Onion. Rian Johnson’s latest film places the master sleuth in an entirely new situation that’s arguably even more complex than his first big-screen outing. But amid that, Johnson also revealed something about Blanc himself. The filmmaker recently confirmed that the character is gay and, following that, Craig is explaining why he isn’t seeking to make a big deal out of the reveal.

Don’t worry, folks, I’m not going to get into major spoilers here, though what I will say is that Glass Onion does allude to Benoit’s sexuality in a pretty seamless way. Daniel Craig spoke about his character’s LGBTQ status while taking part in a lengthy discussion with Deadline. The 54-year-old actor confirmed that he didn’t want to make a fuss over the reveal because it simply felt right for the character in his eyes. In making his point, he also cheekily referenced Blanc’s domestic status, which is quickly highlighted in the sequel: 

It’s all good. The less of a song and dance we make about that, the better, really, for me, because it just made sense. And also, as I said at the LFF, who wouldn’t want to live with the human being that he happens to live with? It’s nice, it’s fun. And why shouldn’t it be? I don’t want people to get politically hung up on anything.
