Diversity not universally appreciated: Marvel’s ‘Eternals’ banned in many Gulf countries | Movie

Movie“Eternals” will not be shown in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar. The reason will be the introduction of Marvel’s first gay superhero. Disney also refused to make a censored version of the film.

In ‘Eternals’ we meet the superhero Phastos (Brian Tyree). He is openly gay and shares a kiss with his wife in the film. Something that is still illegal in many Gulf countries. So Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar have quietly removed the film from their sites. The print edition will be released in the United Arab Emirates at this time.

Disney also refused to make a censored version of “Eternals.” Something that was already the case with the Pixar movie “Onward”. In it, Disney presented a lesbian character. Then Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia cut the film out of their cinemas.

The movie “Eternals” follows the ancient alien team of Celestials, who have lived secretly on Earth for 7,000 years but must reunite to protect the world from evil perverts. Co-starring Angelina Jolie (“Lara Croft”), Richard Madden (“Bodyguard”), Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”), and Gemma Chan (“Crazy Rich Asians”).

“Eternals” is now in cinemas.
