The new Marvel movie Eternals will not be shown in some Gulf countries. According to ‘The Hollywood Reporter’, the film has been banned in the countries of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar because superhero Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), Marvel’s first gay character, kisses his husband in a scene.

In the countries, the film, which also includes Richard Madden and Gemma Chan, would appear on November 11. However, local distributors wanted to adapt several scenes, but Disney, who owns all the rights of Marvel, did not want to go along with that. That is why it was decided not to show the film there at all.

It is not the first time that a film has not been screened because of LGBTQIA+ characters in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar, among others, where homosexuality is still banned. Last year that happened with the Pixar film Onward because it referred to a lesbian couple.
