Marvel's Eternals Movie To Feature LGBTQ+ Kiss

Recommended Posts

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.

Quote

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.

Just a FYI, any remotely inappropriate comments will simply be deleted. If you have a problem with that, I honestly don't care.

And no I don't think this is really major breaking news or a big deal. LGBT+ kisses happen all the time on TV and in movies now. I have absolutely no problem with it happening in the movie but nor do I think its a major breaking event as some will likely try and portray it as.

Nice. Hoping this movie does well and gives more exposure to these characters

Not relevant. If ID politics takes over the identity of this film like with Star Wars then I'm not gonna watch it. Especially as the bigger controversy will be these cowards cutting the kiss out in other countries. We're comic book lovers, we've seen this a million times. It doesn't need a song and dance. It's just a natural thang.

And it only took 25 movies over the course of 12 years... very brave, Disney!  Really breaking boundaries, ain't ya?

How much y'all wanna bet it'll be a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment like in Rise of Skywalker?  At least it'll involve a main (hell, even named) character this time.

IDK, in all honesty I am not that up on my Eternals lore, but I will say the actor in this interview is not yet even listed as part of the cast on IMDb.

Wasn't planning on seeing this due to never being a fan of the Eternals, so no biggie to me.

Oh, so it'll probably be like Star Trek Beyond showing Sulu's husband for like 5-10 seconds of screentime.  That's... probably better than the literal 1 second lesbian kiss in Rise of Skywalker, or for another Disney example, LeFou dancing with a guy for the briefest of moments which they similarly tried to hype up as this big thing but ended up being completely underwhelming, but still... not great.

Can you explain to me how identity politics took over Star Wars? I'll concede that the new movies had more women and people of colour in more prominent roles than the prior trilogies, but at no point did it seem like they went out of their way to make a thing of race or gender in any of the stories. What am I missing?

Hopefully they will do it better than In Harley Quinn Birds of prey or Star Wars, in both cases it was hm...  but then again  Russia won't allow it neither will China and few other countries that have such laws, so I guess it will be Western world only version.

Because if he thinks its garbage he has a right to that opinion. I may not agree with it but I am not going to delete it cause of that.

Never have truer words been spoken. Do it if you're gonna do it, but don't make the entire movie about how groundbreaking it is. It's not like same sex relations haven't been seen in movies and television before.

We shall have to see if it is natural or contrived, and if it's natural to the story or plot points, then it still deserves evaluation of political pandering. Regardless, the more jaunts the MCU takes to the left, the less likely I am to continue to donate them my right leaning monies.

Hopefully one day, two people in love kissing on-screen will be considered normal and not news-worthy

Already done. When's the last time they wrote one of these sleazy click-bait articles about a guy kissing a girl?

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

While I am in 100% agreement with the fact that male on male or female on female kiss isn't anything groundbreaking or super news worthy in this day and age, and should be treated no differently than if we see a male and female kissing on screen, at the same time when you have people going on rants, making comments or constant YT videos on things like identity politics are bringing these franchises down or spouting hateful comments about it, your making it as a big a deal as the so-called click bait headlines promoting it your complaining about. You can't have it both ways. Its either complete normal and should be treated as such, go about your business nothing to see here, or its not.
