The Eternals from Marvel tells the story of an alien race of immortals who live among ordinary people. The film was scheduled to be released on November 11 in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman, but local regulators canceled the show. There was no official explanation.

According to media reports, in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Oman, censors demanded that same-sex kissing and several other scenes be removed. Disney refused to do this and paid the price. Kuwait and Qatar, presumably, did not like the images of prophets and gods – this is prohibited by religion.

However, in the UAE, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt, “The Eternals” will be shown. But it will be a stripped-down version without all the romantic scenes.

In China, by the way, the film was canceled completely and without talking – once the director of the film spoke badly about the CCP. And so China decided to express its phi in response, doing it as usual – in yuan for inappropriate content. In Russia, because of the homosexual character, the film will be released with an 18+ mark.
