Marvel’s Eternals features many firsts, including the MCU’s first (PG-13 / 13+) sex scene and the first gay superhero. However, these have led many countries, including Saudi Arabia and its neighbors, to ban the latest Marvel movie before its release date on November 11.

VarietyBanning Eternals seems like a last-minute decision made after the movie premiered in November. It has also been confirmed that Eternals will no longer be released in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, although sources say that tickets are still available in the UAE.

Different regions may sometimes censor or modify movies for content that does not follow their local guidelines. In a few Arab countries, some changes may be made to comply with censorship rules for films containing sex, homosexuality and possible religious subjects.

According to Variety, Disney did not want to change the film to comply with local guidelines, and after Disney’s decision, the film’s vision plans in the UAE were cancelled.

Eternals features Phastos, the first gay superhero in an MCU movie. When Phastos, played by Brian Tyree Henry, is recruited by the other Eternals to once again fend off the Deviants, they appear to make a living with her husband and child.

On the other hand, the movie was released in Turkey today and is in theaters.
