The head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, confirmed last summer that the next film would feature the first gay romance of the studios.

Sleiman said this about his on-screen relationship with Henry.

"I just filmed a Marvel movie with the first openly gay superhero, the Eternal. I'm married to gay superhero Phastos, played by Atlantawe are Brian Tyree Henry, and we represent a gay family and we have a son. "

"Oh, yes, absolutely, and it's a beautiful and very touching kiss. Everyone cried on the set. For me it is very important to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be. Brian Tyree Henry is such a tremendous actor and brought so much beauty in this part, and at one point I saw a child in his eyes, and I think it is important that the world remember that in the community we were all children at one point. We forget that because we are always represented as sexual or rebellious. of connecting in that human part. "

Although we have more information about Brian Tyree Henry's Phastos character, we still know very little about Eternal. Kumail Nanjiani has said it will be the greatest science fiction of all that Marvel Studios has released so far. That said, now that the production is over, it's only a matter of time before we can watch the first official video of the movie.

With Black widow coming to theaters in May, we will probably see the first Eternal footage at that time, if not before. The film will not be released in theaters until the end of the year, so Marvel Studios has plenty of time to prepare the first preview and finish all visual effects. Some changes may still have to be made, but that is not clear at this time. You can watch the rest of the interview with Haaz Sleiman in New Now Next.
