Marvel Could Introduce Their First Gay Couple Soon!


Actor Haaz Sleiman talks about playing Phastos’s husband in The Eternals, the new Marvel Studios movie. He has given details about the romantic relationship of the two openly gay characters.

The character of Phastos of Brian Tyree Henry will marry, but so far we do not know much about her husband anonymous. Although during a recent interview the actor who plays him, Haaz Sleiman, shed some light on how to bring some diversity to the Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe and revealed more about this supporting character.

They first asked him if he had seen the movie: “I haven’t,” replied the actor. “If you are not Angelina Jolie or Salma Hayek, it is impossible to see it in advance. It’s my first Marvel Studios movie, so of course, I’m excited. “

“ My instinct is that the fans will be very proud. What Marvel Studios has been able to achieve… I’m very proud of them because they approached it in a very thoughtful way, and Phastos is one of the greatest superheroes in the movie. I am her husband, an architect and we have a son. Although he wished he was the superhero, because when will we see an openly gay Muslim Arab actor playing a superhero? I can not wait to see it”.

It will be interesting to see how they have set the story.

Phastos is a being that is thousands of years old and if he is married with a child it means that it is something that happened in the past and now he is hurt to see them die of old age or their relationship is happening in the present. Anyway, it will be interesting to discover their history in Los Eternos and see how Marvel Studios introduces us to all these characters.

Directed by Chloé Zhao it has a superb cast headed by Angelina Jolie (Thena), Richard Madden (Ikaris), Gemma Chan (Sersi), Kit Harington (Dane Whitman / Black Knight), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Salma Hayek (Ajax), Barry Keoghan (Druig), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Ma Dong-Seok (Gilgamesh), Lia McHugh (Sprite), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Haaz Sleiman and Lucia Efstathiou.
