Chloé Zhao’s “Eternals,” the highly-anticipated next entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, had its premiere this week, with the film receiving praise on social media. One of the highlights was its inclusion of married LGBTQ+ characters — Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos and Haaz Sleiman as his architect husband. In this episode of “The Take,” Kristen Stewart, who is bisexual, discusses the importance of Marvel representing the LGBTQ+ community and shares a message for any naysayers who speak out against their incorporation.

Also in this episode, the hosts share their take on Ruby Rose’s allegations of misconduct and unsafe work conditions on the set of “Batwoman,” which led to her exit, along with Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos’ walk-back of his corporate memos regarding the Dave Chappelle comedy special “The Closer” that led to an organized employee walkout including trans and LGBTQ+ staffers and allies. Finally, we end on the announcement that the Golden Globes will take place on Jan. 9, the same day as the Critics Choice Awards, which took studios and the ceremony’s network partner, NBC, by surprise.

Hosted by Variety senior correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister and awards editor Clayton Davis, “Variety‘s The Take,” presented by Apple TV Plus, is a weekly series that will navigate the week’s top stories from the entertainment world, pop culture and media while providing expert analysis and exclusive insight on what’s buzzing in Hollywood. Filmed in Variety’s state-of-the-art studios in Los Angeles, new episodes are released weekly on Fridays on, YouTube and social media.
