Eternals is the latest film from Marvel Studios and one of the most anticipated this year. Various big names appeared there, thus making the film a big expectation like the epic action of the Avengers.
When it comes to superhero films, the most interesting are the characters and their strengths. Eternals is also considered successful in presenting the diversity of its stars where they speak with their respective accents.
There is even the character Makkari, played by Lauren Ridloff, who became the first deaf superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and speaks in sign language.
The dynamics that occur and the relationships between the characters are also very interesting to watch. The development of the character Sersi (Gemma Chan) and the romance that exists with Ikaris (Richard Madden) is a different treat compared to other Marvel Studio films.
