“I just shot a Marvel film with the first openly gay superhero, The Eternals. 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,” he revealed.

He also opened up about the two kissing on-screen.

“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. Brian Tyree Henry is such a tremendous actor and brought so much beauty into this part, and at one point I saw a child in his eyes, and I think it’s important for the world to be reminded that we in the queer community were all children at one point. We forget that because we’re always depicted as sexual or rebellious. We forget to connect on that human part.”

The Eternals is set to hit theaters in November of 2020.

The actors recently had a scary moment on set. Find out what happened…

'Nurse Jackie' Actor Haaz Sleiman Comes Out as Gay & a 'Total Bottom'

Haaz Sleiman, best known for his work on the Showtime series Nurse Jackie, has come out as gay in a new video on social media.

The 41-year-old actor said that his video was in response to a study that found that more LGBTQ Americans have been murdered in 2017 so far than in the entire year of 2016.

“I am a gay, Muslim, Arab-American man. And I’m going to take it even further: Not only am I gay, but I’m also a bottom. Not only am I a bottom, but I’m also a total bottom which means I like it up you know where,” Haaz said. “And I say this to all the homophobes living in the United States of America and across the globe… Why not? If you ever come to me, to kill me just because I’m gay… I will destroy you.”

“I might be gay and I might be a nice guy, but don’t get it twisted because I will f” you up,” he added.

In another post, Haaz said, “P.S. Women are way better kissers than men.”

Haaz played a gay character on Nurse Jackie, but in a 2009 interview he identified himself as straight.

The Advocate wanted to interview me. I told Showtime only on one condition, no personal questions. The Advocate agreed. At the end of the half hour interview over the phone the idiot interviewer, whom I think was gay (”), asked me if was gay or straight (no personal questions)… I was so shocked. I froze. My body started shaking. And then I lied and said I was straight. Shame on gay people who are not kind to other gay people. He did that on purpose. ”,” Haaz explained.
