Earlier this month, "Star Trek Beyond" revealed that it was making John Cho's character, Hikaru Sulu, the first openly gay character in the series' history. Cho praised the team for not making "a big thing out of it."
But now they might not have a choice.
A scene where Sulu kisses his husband was cut, WENN reports.
Cho told Vulture the scene "wasn't like a make-out session. We're at the airport with our daughter. It was a welcome-home kiss."
The reveal that Sulu would be gay in "Beyond" was welcomed by many, except the role's original actor, George Takei.
Takei, who is gay himself, said "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry didn't make the Sulu character gay, so he should stay straight, though Takei himself was "delighted" the movie had a gay character.
Should the scene have stayed in the new "Star Trek"?
