On the other hand, City Star’s D-Box cinema made a post claiming that the film won’t be screened because it’s banned because it doesn’t align with the Egyptian Family values. The post is now, however, deleted.

The film has been causing controversy in the Middle East because there are gay characters in it. Phastos, played by Brian Tyree Henry, is married to Ben, played by Emirati-born Lebanese actor Haaz Sleiman. The pair share Marvel’s first on-screen same-sex kiss, which caused the ban in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait.

In an interview with news.com.au, Angelina Jolie, who plays Thena in Eternals, said: “I’m sad for those audiences. And I’m proud of Marvel for refusing to cut those scenes out.
