‘Eternals’ Star on MCU’s First Gay Kiss: ‘Everyone Cried on Set’

Eternals star confirms gay superhero's identity — and that the film gives the MCU its first gay kiss

Marvel Studios' First Gay Couple Revealed in 'Eternals' – Here's Who They Are

It wasn't actually Henry who revealed the news, but rather actor Haaz Sleiman, who confirmed it in an interview with NewNowNext.

Fans knew director Chloe Zhao's Eternals was going to change that by featuring a gay, married couple, but now (thanks to a portrayer of half that union) Marvel diehards know which superhero in the sprawling cast will be boosting the queer representation of the universe -and the fact that they'll get a meaningful kiss on screen.

On screen kisses between same sex characters in Beauty and the Beast and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker moved the needle a bit, but at the same time felt nearly like afterthoughts because of how little those characters' sexualities were explored beyond those quick moments. "For me it's very important to show how loving and attractive a queer family can be", he added. 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.

He continued: "We forget that because we're always depicted as sexual or rebellious; we forget to connect on that human part".

The Eternals arrives in cinemas on November 6.
