The Eternals is a brand new movie belonging to the Marvel franchise. This film came out November 5th, 2021 and its reaction on many people is truly impactful.
This movie has no relation to previous films and/or characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead, it’s a film with a whole new branch of characters, storylines, and all sorts of superhuman powers. The plot consists of a group of immortal beings who also seem to have superhuman abilities; they’re called “The Eternals.” They’ve lived on Earth secretly for thousands of years but plan on reuniting to fight the evil Deviants.
In the film, there are 10 Eternals,Thena (Angelina Jolie), Ajak (Salma Hayek), Ikaris (Richard Madden), Sersi (Gemma Chan), Druig (Barry Keoghan), Gilgamesh (Don Lee), Sprite (Lia McHugh), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), Makkari (Laurel Ridloff), and Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry).
The world didn’t seem too fazed when the news of The Eternals expanded throughout the internet since it has nothing to do with what we’re all familiar with, so the majority of the population stated that it wasn’t going to be as good as the previous ones. I have yet to watch this movie but it’s more than worth watching and continuing to discuss it from what I’ve heard and investigated.
The cast for this movie is extremely diverse; there are actors from various ethnicities and races, whose roles all please society’s new norms. The movie star, Lauren Ridloff, has her very own appearance in this movie but what truly makes her stand out is the fact that she’s deaf. According to different opinions, everyone’s been impacted by her role and inspired by the actress as well.
Two of the main topics spoken about before the movie was released were the fact that famous British singer Harry Styles has his very own role in this movie; Starfox. Sadly, he only appears in the movies’ post-credits scene but is rumored to be one of the main characters in the next one. Also, globally known Korean boy band BTS made a cameo with their song “Friends” from their album Map of the Soul: 7. It made a lot more people want to watch the movie, and made all seven of them feel incredibly accomplished and proud of themselves.
I’ve seen how excited thousands of people are, especially fans of the Marvel Universe. This film has been talked about and anticipated for a while now, and the more it’s spoken on, the more the public wants to watch it. From what has been spoken, the movie has a ton of comedic elements which is something that’s going to make reviews about “The Eternals” even better than what’s expected.
