Who plays all these new Marvel heroes?
The character descriptions are from Marvel’s official synopsis – poor Dane Whitman is apparently too boring for any hype. However, he becomes the sword-wielding hero Black Knight in the comics, so maybe the company is just keeping quiet like that.
The film will reunite Harington and Madden, who played Jon Snow and Robb Stark.
Gemma Chan was previously seen in the MCU asMinn-Erva, but Sersi is a separate character. She said working on Eternals was a very different experience from Captain Marvel, who employed more studio work and blue screen. Eternals was filmed in the Canary Islands and England, so it uses real environments and mostly natural light, as previously reported by IDMbrief.
In December 2019, Nanjiani revealed the fruits of his training – and the intense regime needed to sustain it – to play swordsman Kingo in some. In March 2020 he will have impersonate Wolverine ( ) and other iconic movie characters for a Men’s Health photo shoot.
“I couldn’t have done this if I hadn’t had a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the largest studio in the world,” he wrote in his original Instagram caption. “I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I’ve never done it before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time.”
It also has two big firsts for the MCU: Brian Tyree Henry, van, plays Phastos – the first openly gay superhero in the MCU, and Lauren Ridloff, who you may know as Connie in , becomes the MCU’s first deaf superhero. Her character, Makkari, is male in the comics.
But what is even an Eternal, you wonder? Maybe you have already met one:. The big, purple mass murderer was the center of attention and took on a slew of heroes in Endgame – his temporarily successful attempt to end overpopulation by wiping out half of the galaxy is apparently the reason for the Eternals reuniting in the MCU.
Like itand , this movie focuses on Marvel’s cosmic cartoon characters.
What is the History of the Eternals?
Thanos may be the only Eternal we’ve seen on screen, but Eternals have a comedic history dating back to 1976. They were created by Jack Kirby, co-creator of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men, after he created the samefor DC six years earlier.
In the comics, they are an evolutionary offshoot of humanity living on Earth, which has greater powers and a longer lifespan. The Celestials, a group of space gods, created them to defend Earth.
We’ve already seen a few Celestials in themovies – most notably the space station Knowhere (actually the severed head of a Celestial) and Peter Quill’s father, Ego, (who took on human form) in .
