Eternals represents the world as it is today and drifts away from the conventional marvel cinematic universe films.
While the world as we know it is much different than a world some might have known before, the new Eternals film gives variety to its cast members.
This time around, we see much more than Marvel films have failed to produce in preceding years. Not that we really asked for a sex scene but nevertheless.
Regardless of this, the film still does a good job at making watchers stay to find out more. If you asked me, there’s nothing like a Marvel film based on old legends, dating back to more than a thousand years ago.
Okay, so let’s not drift too far away from the film itself.
The diversity in the film is probably one of the reasons why a large group of people will watch. They will be able to identify themselves rather than just watch for the sake of entertainment. This is a big moment for pop culture.
In particular, we find Jemma Chan who is of Asian descent, and Kumail who is of Indian descent. Speaking of Kumail, the actor recently opened up about how nervous he was about his Bollywood dancing scene as he really wanted to do his culture justice. It might be a sight for sore eyes, you be the judge of that.
In other parts of the film, we find our first same-sex couple who openly shares a kiss on screen. What did I say about pop culture? Well, to avoid any spoilers, I won’t mention who these characters are. You’re welcome.
So, the Eternals film makes a good balance between emotionally driven scenes and humor, I’m sure you would be happy to know that this is not missing.
Eternals will be in cinemas across the UK on November 5th, 2021.
