"The next superhero movie made by Marvel, called The Eternals, will feature a kiss between two men. Actor Haaz Sleiman mentioned that it is important 'to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be.' Sleiman, who came to the United States from Lebanon when he was 21, boasted of the kiss between two men: 'It’s a beautiful, very moving kiss. Everyone cried on set.' '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,' he explained. In addition to playing a homosexual character, Sleiman identifies as a homosexual himself... According to an article published by MSN, 'Inclusion of a same-sex romance storyline in The Eternals comes after Marvel has been criticized for touting LGBTQ representation in past films without delivering more than a brief, negligible scene.' The directors of Avengers: Endgame, a Marvel movie grossing $2.8 billion worldwide, had indicated that one of the characters in the 2019 movie would be a homosexual. In the end, Joe Russo, one of the directors, had a brief cameo appearance as a same-sex attracted character."
