Yes, he does the yell. It comes late in the third act, emerging from off screen, thrown like a desperate, aural Hail Mary, a last ditch reminder that maybe this story about a man with ape-like superhero powers should be a tiny bit fun. The Legend of Tarzan ends up being a garbled, clunky production that tries to please everyone and ends up pleasing no one. Director David Yates, who inherited the beloved Harry Potter characters and brought that series home in its final four entries , makes the wise decision to assume everyone knows who John Clayton, Lord of Greystoke, is. The specifics of how he became Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle, slips into the narrative in some well placed flashbacks, but this is not an origin story.
With his rippling muscles and flowing mane of hair, Tarzan is undoubtedly king of the jungle. But with the release of a new blockbuster, the question has arisen whether he swings both ways. Part of the film, The Legend of Tarzan, even included a gay kiss between Tarzan and Captain Rom, although the passionate moment was cut from the final edit.

It was this really odd, odd moment when Christoph kisses him. But early test audiences were perplexed by it and in the end it just felt too clever and overworked. The offending scene saw Captain Rom, sent by King Leopold of Belgium to take hold of the region, kiss Tarzan while he was unconscious.
Margot Robbie praised director David Yates for not shying away from darker themes of colonialism and exploitation in new film The Legend Of Tarzan. The action-adventure is a reboot of Edgar Rice Burroughs famous tale, in which Tarzan Alexander Skarsgard is called back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary for the British Parliament after years of living among English aristocracy as Lord Greystoke. Back in the jungle, he is caught in a deadly plot masterminded by Leon Rom Christoph Waltz who is overseeing diamond mining in the area on Belgian King Leopold's orders.
The Legend of Tarzan has now raised the question over whether the lead actor may 'swing both ways'. A gay kiss was cut out of the final edit of the new Tarzan film - because test audiences were left "perplexed" by it, the director has revealed. Former adaptations of the story have focused on the main character's developing romance with heroine Jane, but this latest revelation has raised the question: Could he have enjoyed another romance? The new film, The Legend of Tarzan, includes a character named Captain Leon Rom, a ruthless Belgian soldier played by Christoph Waltz, who is now rumoured to be Tarzan's secret love interest. Tarzan and Captain Rom appear close throughout the film however, and the deleted scene reportedly showed Rom kiss Tarzan while he's unconscious.
