The Eternals movie will feature the first male homosexual kiss in the Marvel franchise

Kevin Feige and Marvel's film branch, determined to show how noticeably they can virtue-signal, will apparently be putting the most blatant scene possible into the Eternals adaptation, as relayed in this gushing article on MSN:
On Thursday, actor Haaz Sleiman teased his upcoming on-screen kiss with costar Brian Tyree Henry, telling NewNowNext that filming the Eternals love scene — Marvel’s first LGBTQ smooch — was emotional for everyone on set.

“It’s a beautiful, very moving kiss,” said Sleiman, 43. “Everyone cried on set.”

In the upcoming blockbuster — which also stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Kit Harrington and a recently ripped Kumail Nanjiani — Sleiman plays the husband of Henry’s Phastos, the first openly gay superhero for Marvel after more than a decade of tentpole Avengers films.

“For me, it’s very important to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be,” Sleiman said. “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.”
Ugh, this is such ooey-gooey treacle, from press sources who in the past would even depict men as heroic when they dump their wives and quit their jobs. They really are pushing it this time, presumably because Stan Lee's long gone. John Nolte at Breitbart says:
Well, this should be interesting…

Over and over and over again, at about a 100 percent rate, we have seen woke blockbusters crash and burn at the box office, or at least under-perform. The anti-male Birds of Prey is just the latest victim of audiences rejecting agendas and lectures disguised as entertainment.

Incredibly, this list also includes the Star Wars saga, which most of us believed was bulletproof. I’m not arguing the latest Star Wars trilogy was a flop. But it did perform so far below expectations, especially The Rise of Skywalker, which should have out-performed pretty much every other Star Wars movie, that as a movie franchise, Star Wars is dead.

Can Marvel break the Woke Curse?

Can Marvel get away with using this guy-on-guy action as the tip of its promotional spear and not take a hit at the box office?

Well, if anyone can, it’s Marvel, a franchise with an unprecedented 100 percent hit-rate at the box office; something unheard of when you’re talking about 20-plus titles released over only a dozen or so years.

A few things, though, should concern Marvel…

Star Wars was once considered as bulletproof as Marvel.

Marvel is no longer Marvel. What I mean is that the Iron Man/Captain America era is over. Come on, who the hell are the Eternals?

Finally, who wants to see this? Who is the audience for this? Do parents want to expose their children to something that will result in a premature conversation about human sexuality?
That's why no realist parent would want to expose their children to modern Marvel comics since the mid-2000s, because they really started going round the bend at the time. It's possible Bob Harras may have put the keys in the ignition before he left his EIC role (I think the Ultimate line was originally planned under his tenure), and Joe Quesada merely stepped on the accelerator, followed by his successor Axel Alonso, who continued where Quesada left off. Now we've got Feige, as the head honcho at their film division virtue-signaling to people who may not even bother to see the film in preparation.

All that aside, when the filmmakers start promoting woke identity politics in their productions, that can be a signal the screenplay's merits are low. To see the Eternals should be based on how well made the finished product is, but if this is how they're going to promote it, they've only suggested it's lacking in merit.

And according to the laws of gravity, what goes up must eventually come down, and that's bound to be true for the Marvel movie machine sooner or later. The Marvel movies honestly should've been given a real ending, but in Hollywood, there's only so many franchises where they just don't know when to give it a break. Though that seems to be what's happened with the Terminator franchise, as no film since the 2nd in 1991 has ever come close to doing as well. So, it's bound to happen eventually with Marvel, and DC, whose track record's been all over the place.

I can actually think of a few scenes that would have been more blatant.

A kiss is just a kiss. It doesn’t have to result in a premature conversation about human sexuality any more than seeing a kiss on screen between a man and a woman provokes a premature conversation about human sexuality.

Why all this obsession with box office performance? That is for bean-counters in the accounting department. Just relax and enjoy the movie. Or else don’t. But who except the investors cares how much money it makes?

it's not just a kiss.

The progressive activists know that and so do the traditionalists.

Once this is allowed, they will push for gay sex scenes. Gay people are very insecure people, seeing as 50% they are rationalizing sexual abuse by saying "no,i was born that way. " much in the same way porn stars will say sexual abuse did not influence their desire to go into porn. many of these people suffer from personality disorders that will push them to keep pushing for queer stuff until the majority of people in the media are lgbt. That is what one activist said. he said the majority of the people he socializes with are lgbt and so he won't be satisfied with queer representation until the vast majority of people in the media are lgbt.

"Why all this obsession with box office performance? That is for bean-counters in the accounting department. Just relax and enjoy the movie. Or else don’t. But who except the investors cares how much money it makes? " because creators and fans use it as back-up to show whether something is popular or not. people who usually complain about this identify with centrally planned societies where an elite group of intellectuals decide what is made. I would like to cite the judicial activism used by progressives since Roe vs Wade as the kind of minority rule that they want to impose. They can always justify it buy saying the majority of people are always wrong because segregation and slavery were wrong, so the majority of people are wrong about everything. Spitting on Vietnam soldiers who were drafted was good because the MAJORITY IS ALWAYS W R O N G.

Trust the elites.

Where to even begin...

Slavery was never a majority preference. Slavery survived in part because women and black men did not have the vote in the years of slavery, and there was a property qualification to vote in many states in the years until shortly before the civil war. Segregation was not a majority preference; it was the preference perhaps of a group of white Southerners who had control of the political institutions in their home states.

There are already gay sex scenes in many movies. But the Marvel movies avoid nudity and sex scenes, because they are PG rated. DC has released some R-rated superhero movies, but this has not always helped get an audience; the Birds of Prey movie did worse than anticipated because teen-age girls were not allowed into the theatres.

A large majority of Americans support Roe v Wade; it is not rule by a minority.

"A large majority of Americans support Roe v Wade; it is not rule by a minority."

Actually, a large majority of Americans didn't even ASK for Roe v. Wade. The only reason THAT'S so-called "law of the land" was due to an outright activist court ruling the decree by fiat. In fact, there's a lot of people who are trying to overturn Roe v. Wade, and I'd know because my Catholic church is part of that group trying to overturn it, and the March for Life turned out significantly large numbers.

There are a lot of people who want to end the right to an abortion. The Catholic Church as an institution is strongly against abortion. It is just there are a lot more people who think the state has no business preventing abortions. If you are in the midst of a Sanders rally, you would think all America was liberal; at a Trump rally, you would never guess how unpopular he is nationally. Similarly, if you are in a Catholic environment, it is hard to gauge the sentiment of the country as a whole on this issue.

Abortion was mostly legal in the States until the twentieth century. You can find ads in the newspapers back then advertising people who would help get rid of 'menstrual blockages' or something similar. The Supreme Court was restoring an old status quo.

Like it or not, the American founders believed in a system of checks and balances in which the judiciary had a strong role in protecting individual rights. They rejected the parliamentary system as it existed in England with its principle of parliamentary supremacy. The Supreme Court was doing its job.

" Gay people are very insecure people, seeing as 50% they are rationalizing sexual abuse by saying "no,i was born that way.

Interesting how you claim to understand the souls of gay people and porn stars so much better than any actual gay people and porn stars do.

There was a wave of effort to legalize abortion in the years before Roe v Wade. Bestselling novels like Earth and High Heaven in the 1940s, and Peyton Place in the 1950s (not to mention the movie), had described abortion as something decent people might resort to, and as something that was sometimes necessary. A few states, including Washington, had legalized abortion again in the late 1960s. There was a strong push within the feminist movement to allow woman rather than the state to decide whether they had to bear a child after it had been conceived. Roe v Wade did not come out of nowhere. The judges were following, not leading, current trends.
