Meet Beau DeMayo, the Sexy, Gay Marvel Writer & Showrunner to Know
With so many streaming services, there's an unending amount of content to consume. And when you do, there's often not enough time to get to know the people behind it all outside of a few marquee names (hello Ryan Murphy and Greg Berlanti.) Well, if you haven't been introduced already, meet Beau DeMayo.
About a month ago, DeMayo's name started ringing major bells publicly as rumors swirled that he had been tapped to rewrite Marvel Studio's upcoming Blade film starring Mahershala Ali. Anticipation is high for the project, and according to sources, things weren't going well. DeMayo was brought in as a savior. And while that's quite the bet, it's a result of the showrunner and writer putting in the work over the years (between sexy posts on Instagram).

In an interview, Beau told the world that growing up he found himself identifying with mutants at a deep level. He was adopted by two white parents and had a sister from Korea and they were all living in the south. The result was that he didn't look like the rest of his family.
"Everyone has a sad story, but like, X-Men was my way of kinda of making sense of this weird family where no one resembled me, but yet we weren't blood, but we were supposed to be family," he told The Direct.
You've probably seen or heard of something he's worked on.
Beau's resume is extensive. Recently he worked on projects like Netflix's The Witcher, which he served as a producer and writer on. He also was a writer on Disney+'s Moon Knight. Before that though, he worked on projects like The Originals and the League of Legends short films.
He also did Star Trek: Strange New Worlds for Parmaount+, serving as a supervising producer.
One of his favorite films is 'Zorro, The Gay Blade.'
There's a chance that you haven't heard of it but Zorro, The Gay Blade is a 1981 comedy that saw its star, George Hamilton, nominated for a Golden Globe after playing Zorro (or Don Diego de la Vega) and his gay twin brother Bunny Wigglesworth (or Ramon de la Vega.) And it happens to have been one of Beau's favorite films growing up. In fact, he took the "flamboyant, devil-may-care attitude" from the film and put it into Vesemir when working on The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
Beau does have an OnlyFans — and its free.
Before you get too excited, the showrunner isn't publishing any hardcore X-rated content. But still, he does operate an OnlyFans account that allows him to be a little freer in what he does choose to post. Don't be mistaken though: just because it's not pornographic doesn't mean it isn't sexy.
"I'm over the shame," he wrote in his bio on the site. "This is a place for me to continue growing and pushing my own boundaries when it comes to my body and sexuality."
If you want to see how he pushes "in a system that's always holding me back," give him a follow. It is free after all.
Beau DeMayo has a full plate of projects coming.
As far as his next confirmed project, the writer and showrunner is the executive producer of X-Men '97, an animated show set to hit Disney+ in 2023. The series, which is his main focus right now, comes in addition to two non-Marvel feature projects he's working on.
According to multiple reports, Beau is also onboard for a large-scale Marvel project. Many outlets have reported that he is quarterbacking a rewrite of the script for the upcoming Blade film starring Mahershala Ali.
