@Serhiy, this doesn't just affect typing.Union, it seems that the rest of the typing types don't substitute:

>>> (int | T)[typing.List[str]]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: Each union arg must be a type, got typing.List[str]

We should probably loosen the check during the union_getitem substitution -- no need to raise the TypeError or check for is_union, just blindly replace the TypeVar. We already do this for types.GenericAlias:

>>> list[T][1]

Or if you want to continue checking, maybe checking for PyCallable_Check(obj) in substitution is enough - typing internally accepts callable(o) too:
