    In the “Charlie’s Angels” reboot, a new generation of investigators join together on a mission to protect the public from dangerous technology.

    Kristen Stewart’s character in the highly anticipated “Charlie’s Angels” reboot is “definitely gay,” Elizabeth Banks, the film’s writer, producer and director recently confirmed, after previously refusing to put a label on the character’s sexuality.

    When the film’s trailer was initially released in June, LGBTQ fans dubbed the reboot “Charlie’s Gayngels” in celebration of the casting of Stewart, a queer actress, as Sabrina Wilson, the hard-partying rebel of the group. Yet, these fans found themselves disappointed when Banks pushed back on speculation that Stewart’s character was queer.

    “I don’t feel there is a label that fits her,” Banks said of the character in a September interview with Digital Spy. “The only thing that was important to me was to not label it as anything. It’s fine if the media wants to label it, I think that’s OK, but I didn’t do that.”

    Banks, however, backtracked on those comments in a recent interview with Pride Source, stating that Sabrina is “definitely gay.”
