(CNSNews) -- One Million Moms, a division of the American Family Association, is warning parents that the upcoming Marvel Studios film "Eternals" features an openly gay male superhero and his "spouse," who kiss on screen.
The Eternals movie is being distributed by Walt Disney Studios and is scheduled for release on Feb. 12, 2021.
"One Million Moms needs your help to make sure as many people as possible are aware of Marvel pushing the LGBTQ agenda on families in the upcoming superhero movie The Eternals," said One Million Moms (1MM) in a petition on their website.
"Marvel has decided to be politically correct instead of providing family friendly programming," said 1MM. "Marvel should stick to entertaining, not pushing an agenda."
Citing the Christian News Network, 1MM noted, “The upcoming film The Eternals, based on the fictional characters depicted in Marvel Comics books, will include a homosexual superhero and his ‘spouse,’ who will kiss on screen, the actor who plays his partner has revealed."
"‘I just shot a Marvel film with the first openly gay superhero: The Eternals,'" said actor Haaz Sleiman, who is openly gay. "I’m married to the gay superhero Phastos, played by Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry, and we represent a gay family and have a child.'"
"When asked if there would be kissing in the film, he replied, ‘Oh yeah, absolutely, and 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,’" said Sleiman.
According to Marvel.com, the Eternals are "ancient aliens who have been living on Earth in secret for thousands of years. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, an unexpected tragedy forces them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind's most ancient enemy, The Deviants."
"1MM wants parents to be forewarned so they are not caught off guard with this upcoming Marvel film," said the pro-family organization." This would surprise most conservative families since it would be unexpected, so 1MM needs your help in getting the word out to as many people as possible."
