Eternals is the last big launch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that can be seen from today in Latin America and from tomorrow in the rest of the world. This is a completely new story for fans from what we know about the franchise and they will introduce us to a group of characters, of which we have a first same-sex couple and the first gay superhero, dog this triggered in a ban.
This feature film directed by Chloe Zhao it will be the first within the MCU to include LGBTQ + representation in a significative way. Diversity in the company is something Kevin Feige has been working on since Phase 3, so in the fourth phase he already has several interesting examples of the expansion of this thinking, such as the confirmation that Loki is bisexual.
+ Eternals is banned in these countries
However, the progress that has been promoted since Disney it does not seem to have interference in some territories. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eternals will not hit theaters in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar, which was due to arrive in the Gulf region as of November 11. The film has already been removed from the websites of these nations, but is still listed as pending in some countries.
The reason for its ban is because these countries sent requests to remove scenes that included a same-sex couple and the first gay superhero, but Marvel Studios flatly refused.. In the Gulf region, homosexuality is considered illegal, so local authorities often review these productions to censor the parts they consider.
The director had advanced this before its premiere stating that Phastos, played by Brian Tyree Henry, was the gay superhero and has a son in the movie. For the moment Disney It has not issued any statement on the matter, but it adds to the prohibition that it already suffered at the time with this film and Shang-Chi in China.
