The film is scheduled to open in theaters in November and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios.
(Heather Clark – Christian News) The upcoming film “The Eternals”, based on the fictional characters depicted in Marvel Comics books, will include a homosexual superhero and his “spouse,” who will kiss on screen, the actor who plays his partner has revealed.
“I just shot a Marvel film with the first openly gay superhero: ‘The Eternals.’ I’m married to the gay superhero Phastos, played by Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry, and we represent a gay family and have a child,” actor Haaz Sleiman told NewNowNext.
When asked if there would be kissing in the film, he replied, “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,” Sleiman added. “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.”
