No, Eros is one of the Eternals of Titan. I'm assuming any Eternals movie would be based more on the Eternals of Earth, so probably Ikaris.I feel a need to be a party pooper here but....wouldn't that be Eros?
The most heterosexual man alive?
Mind you, I'm all for gay superheroes and wouldn't be adverse to choosing Carol to be gay or other major characters. It's just that's Eros' ONLY character trait aside from his relationship to Thanos.
Heh.Yeah, because no one has read anything into that relationship.
I kind of Read Carol as Ace possibly Homoromantic.\
As for Carol's sexuality - I don't know what the filmmaker's intention was, and I'm certainly not going to tell any LGBTQ folks who read a queer identity in Carol or relationship between her and Maria that they are wrong.
When people, many of them queer women themselves, see the relationship between Carol and Maria as having queer subtext, it may not be the best idea to suggest they only do so because they're "conditioned to expect a woman hero character to have a heteronormative romantic subplot"... maybe?I think we're so conditioned to expect a woman hero character to have a heteronormative romantic subplot, that the lack of one makes us seek the romance elsewhere. Maybe she's queer. Maybe she's ace. Maybe something else.
Or, it just wasn't relevant so they didn't, for once, throw the romantic subplot in for forms sake.
It's stated in the movie that Carol didn't get along with her father (who's seen berating her in a couple of the flashbacks) so Maria's parents took her in, and they grew up together. Which doesn't preclude a romantic relationship, but "sisters" fits the facts we're given just as well.I like it as a platonic but extremely close friendship. A lot of entertainment media ask as though romantic relationships are the only ones that really matter. But my read of this one is that they were not a couple... but were just as important to each other as if they were.
You misunderstand - I'm not suggesting doing this is wrong. It's the first place I went myself while watching the film.When people, many of them queer women themselves, see the relationship between Carol and Maria as having queer subtext, it may not be the best idea to suggest they only do so because they're "conditioned to expect a woman hero character to have a heteronormative romantic subplot"... maybe?
Garbage romantic subplot are common, and Captain Marvel isn't the first one to lack one. Movies without one have been commented on before, too! People have gone on about Winter Soldier, for ex, as a movie in which Bucky and/or Falcon were treated as the love interest (in term of being the focus of the emotional narrative), for ex. Thor Ragnarok plain didn't have one either, and I don't think I've seen that sort of "gay subtext" interpretation of it, though.One, the thing I mentioned - there's always a garbage romantic plot in there. Wonder Woman had one, for example. The lack of such makes Captain Marvel stand out. But why?
Well of course they shouldn't have to! But if they want to, they shouldn't be told they're only doing it only because of being conditioned by heteronormative culture, was my point.Two, queer people shouldn't have to settle for subtext and subtle coding. There should be unequivocal queer relationships in mainstream everything. The lack leads to awful shit like the shameless queerbaiting of the Sherlock series.
