Eternals: “Just because you can doesn`t mean you should” – Disappointing Marvels superhero attempt

Eternals debuts in theaters on Nov. 5, 2021.

Eternals is huge. Centuries worth of stories and a whole team of vastly different heroes are condensed into a visually stunning and impeccably acted film. The relationships of these complicated characters keep things as fresh as they can, but the story gets unwieldy when it shifts into a cosmic scale. Had it kept the narrative closer to home, it would have played better as a standalone film, but it wouldn’t have felt like the grand Eternals introduction into the MCU had that been the case.

Director Chloé Zhao was met with an impossible challenge that she took on with grace, skill, and her trademark jaw-dropping scenery.

Directly after the success of Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the MCU is back with a new set of heroes to fight the good fight. Eternals tells the tale of a group of superpowered beings sent here to protect the citizens of Earth. The globe-trotting, multi-character adventure directed by Chloe Zhao features a star-studded cast.

The Eternals include Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kulmail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Ma Dong-Seok as Gilgamesh. Oh, and did I happen to mention Angelina Jolie as Thena and Salma Hayek as Ajak? Well, they’re also part of this large cast of MCU’s next generation.

The question is, how well does this new adventure fit into the already packed series of films? Let’s get into it.
