It’s just over a month before the release of Eternals. The long-awaited film that will continue the Marvel saga is directed by Chloé Zhao and much has been said about whether this director has been able to give a return to the already known style of the films of the franchise. Confirmation that her rating will be PG-13 for “brief sexuality” could point to maybe yes after all.

According to Coming Soon, Eternals It will have a PG-13 rating, the same as the rest of the Marvel movies. However, this is due to “fantasy violence, language, and brief sexual scenes.” The film is directed by Chloe zhao And, although we do not expect anything explained, it could be because, finally, the franchise begins to explore the passion between some of its characters.
Most likely these are scenes involving Ikaris (Richard Madden) and Sersi (Gemma Chan) or Dane Whitman (Kit Harington). It is known that these characters will be in a love triangle and the different advances that have been revealed of the production anticipate that romance will be an important part of the history of these three heroes and that may involve carnal passion, although nothing too explicit for him Disney family taste.
Another option is that this is because, finally, Eternals will present the first gay superhero of the saga, who will be married with a son. It is about Phastos, the inventor of the group of aliens that star in the film. Again, if anything, your relationship will most likely be suggested before anything too explicit is shown. We are all familiar with the constant “queerbaiting”, the practice of advertising, but not representing or doing it in a diluted way, LGBT characters, Disney.
The lack of sexuality and sensuality is a criticism that has been made to the films of the saga. While we’ve seen a few romances, and perhaps the most enduring has been Gamora and Star Lord or Peggy and Steve, rarely has the franchise taken the time to make any romantic relationship the center of its story. The only exception could be the most recent WandaVision – 95%, probably because it is television, but there is also a very demure representation of the sexual element.

Anyway, Eternals it is a film that will already take several risks. Not only are there ten new characters that will have to be introduced to the public, but it will introduce a whole new cosmic dimension to the franchise to the saga. Likewise, it will do so with one of the most diverse casts that the genre has seen. If you fail to talk about sex, surely that will not happen with Deadpool 3, film that is in development.
Has Zhao convinced Marvel executives that it is time to put some passion in his heroes or will we see the same thing as before? We will have to discover in theaters next November 5 when Eternals hits theaters to tell us about this race of aliens with extraordinary powers.
