He’s constantly involved in LGBT events and activities and fully supporting the community.
When Sleiman talked about the most popular kiss, he said for NewNowNext.com
“It’s a beautiful, very moving kiss. Everyone cried on set. For me, it’s very important to show how loving and beautiful a queer family can be”.
In The Eternals, we get to see some of the biggest faces in the industry, such as Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Kit Harrington and the whole action happens after the Avengers: Endgame.
According to IMDB.com, the Eternals will have to reunite against the Deviants who threaten to destroy the galaxy.
Marvel’s search for an LGBTQ actors
This news is not entirely surprising according to thathashtagshow.com. The studios announced they were looking for a new LGTBQ character
“During the press coverage of Ant-Man and The Wasp last year, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige stated that the studio was working towards bringing a new, LGBTQ character to the mix in the near future. As it turns out, that future is nearly upon us as the studio searches for an actor, 30-49, who “physically looks like a superhero” for one of the film’s leads. While the studio is open to actors of all ethnicity, they would prefer the role to go to an openly gay actor.”That Hashtag Show

The fact that they will be portrayed as a beautiful, happy family is really going to have an impact on how people see the LGBT communities. While this may be the first LGBT kiss in a Marvel movie, hopefully it won’t be the last!
