With the end of Marvel's suspenseful film “Avengers: Endgame”, a new phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe begins: “Eternals”. Fans can look forward to new adventures from, not entirely unknown, superheroes. The "Eternals" appeared in Jack Kirby's comic from the Marvel universe in the 1970s. Fan of the Marvel films and director Chloe Zhao promises us great cinema. According to an interview with “The Hollywood Reporter”, she measured herself against the film level of “Endgame” and her choice of cast leads to a highlight.
A look at Kirby's comic could already tell us what to expect in the new Marvel film “Eternals” from director and fan of Marvel films Chloe Zhao: Millions of years ago the aliens Celestials carried out genetic experiments on humans, with the Eternals emerged, human-like superheroes.
But the experiments had a downside: The Deviants, an evil version of the Eternals, also emerged. From now on, it was up to the public-shy Eternals to protect the world from the Deviants. Occasionally, when the task got too tough, the Avengers would jump in to help.
Marvel film Eternals with a top-class cast
The individual roles of the “Eternals” superhero duo are played by some well-known greats in the film world. We see Angelina Jolie as the warrior Thena, Barry Keoghan, known from Dunkirk, as Druig; Brian Tyree Henry as the inventive Phastos; Don Lee, whom we know from Train to Busan, in the role of Gilgamesh; Kumail Nanjiani Kingo as a swordsman; Richard Madden, known from the series Game of Thrones, as Ikaris and his GoT set colleague Kit Harrington as Dane Whitman. We also meet Gemma Chan, who we already know from Captain Marvel, and star actor Salma Heyek in The Eternals.
With Eternals, Marvel is taking a step towards the LGBTQ + scene
In an interview with the Italian “Vanity Fair”, Gemma Chan confirmed that there are some romantic entanglements in the movie “Eternals” that will cause ignition and emotion. In addition, it was revealed in a “NewNowNext” interview that for the first time in MCU history a gay couple will be on the big screen. So Phastos has a loving husband.
“NewNowNext” stands for the latest news from the LGBT scene. This news on “Eternals” should not only please fans of Marvel films, but also be a big step for the LGBTQ + movement. Which, let's be honest, was long overdue.
The theatrical release of “Eternals” was originally supposed to be in November 2020, but due to the current corona pandemic, this had to be postponed to the beginning of November 2021.
