After several controversies involving LGBTQ + representation in cinemas, “Eternos” will be re-released for airing in countries of the Middle East, including Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.
A version of the film will be released that will remove any scenes involving kissing or physical intimacy, whether straight or gay. This is normal practice in these markets.
In Qatar and Kuwait, the feature film has been banned. According to the site, the problem isn’t just with the gay kissing scene, but because these markets have historical issues with portraying gods and prophets, which they consider blasphemous.
In an EXCLUSIVE interview with editor-in-chief Renato Marafon, actress Angelina Jolie spoke about her thoughts on people who revolt with the movie’s gay kiss:
“I think they are ignorant people. Why would that bother a smart person? It is something beautiful. “
Revision | Eternos is Marvel’s most artistic, complex and original film… for better or for worse!
Remember that the feature film is already showing in national cinemas.
‘Eternals’ follows the journey of quasi-immortal beings, products of the evolutionary divergence that gave birth to the human race millennia ago. The characters relate to several concepts already introduced in previous universe films, from the Celestials (who came out in “Guardians of the Galaxy”) to Thanos, whose own mother was one of his victims.
The cast also includes Salma Hayek (Ajak), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Lia McHugh (Sprite), Gemma Chan (Sersi), Kit Harington (Black Knight), Barry Kheogan (Druig) and Richard Madden (Ikaris).
