Richard Madden and Salma Hayek support ‘Eternals’ love scene

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The new Marvel movie The Eternals has broken stereotypes in an area the studio has clearly avoided for years: sex between superheroes.

For the first time in 26 films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, an intimate moment of married life was clearly shown between the two characters. The scene, portrayed by Oscar-winning director Chloe Zhao, has already made headlines ahead of the film’s release on Friday.

But Richard Madden, who played Ikaris, said that any headline about superhero sex is “just silly.” He calls the love scene involving his character and Gemma Chan’s Cersei “an intimate moment.”

“We’re trying to tell a love story, and we’re trying to show the closeness and tenderness of people who have been together for many, many years,” Madden said of their characters, who fell in love thousands of years ago for many years. Babylonian empire. He said the scene was “an important part of the beginning of their relationship.”

The pair are members of a race of immortal beings who have spent 7,000 years on Earth defending the world against rivals known as the Deviants.

“This is a wonderful view of this world,” he continued. “And you know, in our heads as actors, I can think that it’s not so much about superheroes doing this, but more about two characters sharing an intimate moment.”

The film won the box office over the weekend, earning $ 71 million domestically, but dividing critics and audiences more than any previous Marvel Studios film.

Sex scenes have not been shown in previous Marvel projects – especially since most of these films appeal to child audiences. In 2008’s Iron Man, Tony Stark and a journalist had a one-night fight, but nothing risky was shown.

The Eternals are rated PG-13 in part because of their “short-lived sexuality.”

Salma Hayek, who plays the superhero Ajak, calls Zhao a very “elegant director.” She said that the director has different views on love and sex.

“There’s an elegance to it,” said Salma Hayek, who believes the scene fits into the film’s theme, which also includes the same-sex kiss. The actor said that the film explores love, and it is presented “in different areas.”

“This is love between a man and a woman, love between a man and a man,” Hayek continued. “Love of duty. Love for planet Earth, love for friendship, love for fatherhood. You know, he explores love in different ways. Why not have a love scene. “
