Marvel's Eternals Movie To Feature LGBTQ+ Kiss

Marvel's Eternals Movie To Feature LGBTQ+ Kiss


Jay Cochran - February 17, 2020
In a recent interview via Newnownext.com, actor Haaz Sleiman who will play the husband of Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry) in the upcoming Eternals movie confirmed that we will be seeing the first LGBTQ+ kiss in the MCU.

Oh, yeah, absolutely, and it’s a beautiful, very moving kiss. Everyone cried on set. For me it’s very important to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be. Brian Tyree Henry is such a tremendous actor and brought so much beauty into this part, and at one point I saw a child in his eyes, and I think it’s important for the world to be reminded that we in the queer community were all children at one point. We forget that because we’re always depicted as sexual or rebellious. We forget to connect on that human part.

If I wear a T-shirt proudly displaying that I'm a straight male & love my wife, will anyone give a damn? Doubt it, feel the same way bout the gay/LGBT community flaunting their "gayness" at the world like it's a big deal.  Never been an Eternals fan so was  RedBoxing this movie from the get go.

It's not a big deal to be straight because it's the "norm" and straight people have never had to fear demonization, prosecution, ostracization or death for most of history simply because they dared exist.

Nice to know we have so many homophobic ass-hats on this site.

Sometimes I kiss dogs. Dogs kiss me.  

I kiss women, I've kissed men. If Disney wants to really shake it up they should make a movie with a polyamorous couple and a group sex scene.  That would make people boil.  

I want to live in a world were we can see a gang bang from the Rice Krispy Elves

Depends on what you're watching.  Dudes kissing on HBO/Showtime/Cinemax/Etc...?  Yeah, they do that from time to time.  Like I said "Premium" television pushes the envelope more.

But this would be the equivalent of having it on ABC/NBC/CBS/Fox during primetime.  Pretty sure the major networks don't have guys kissing in that timeslot very often, if at all. 

I watch mostly network TV. We aren't talking getting all hot and heavy but every CW show pretty much has a gay or lesbian or both couples on it now. Shows on CBS, Fox. It really is just pretty everyday. I remember back in the 90's when Northstar came out as a gay character in the comics and back then it was a big deal, but today its like yeah ok.

This has been going on for a hell of a lot longer than "Social Media" has existed.

Social Media is accountable for all this....I don't understand why this is big news nowadays

You see it all the time on TV shows today. I really don't see it as something major anymore.

I've been an Eternals fan for a long time, longer than some of you here have been alive I'm sure, lol. I just want a movie that is fun, and feels authentic. If they can give the film the same sense of cosmic grandeur that Jack Kirby put in his comic panels, I will be one, great, big, happy, Super-Nerd. That is really all I care about.

Because my beliefs are at least as valid as yours? This free speech thing is awesome, just remember, it goes both ways.

Then why just comment "CARBAGE" instead of running down reasons why you don't like this? It's better just to ignore it than write a single worded argument.

And this time I agree, this news is irrelevant; everyone can kiss anyone nowadays, it's great. There's no relevance in making it a news sort of thing.

It's just that you really despise Disney and the MCU and you have said that over and over again, and I think most people here quite enjoy or don't quite like those, but they at least aren't so strongly worded as you. If you don't like it, just argue reasonably; otherwise, comments like "GARBAGE" will seem childish. This community is so good with everyone being so calm and understanding, so being like that would help it staying that way.
