If you want to know what happens after Thanos’ snap was reversed in Avengers: Endgame, you may want to know how to watch Eternals online for free.
Eternals is the 26th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and follows the Eternals, an immortal alien race, who emerge after 7,000 years of life in secret to protect the Earth from their evil counterparts, the Deviants. In an interview with Geek Culture, Chloe Zhao, the director of Eternals, explained that the movie is an exploration of humanity. “I wanted this so badly,” Zhao said of directing Eternals. “I wanted to work with the team at Marvel because I love the movies. With this particular story, I felt like I had something to offer, and it’s a story that addresses questions that I have for myself as a human being, and so I knew the making of that will allow me to grow.”
She added, “I’ve been thinking about us as a species. We are literally thinking about leaving this planet to go somewhere else. As a species, we’re always trying to leave home and search for something else – meaning, land, gold, opportunity – whatever it is and then in the end when we get older we always end up wanting to go home. I think that’s such a trend, and as I am getting older I think about these themes quite a lot—belonging and home.
Richard Madden, who plays Ikaris in Eternals, told Entertainment Weekly how different it was to play a character that was thousands of years old as opposed to a human. “For me, it was the fascination of when you’ve got a character that’s thousands and thousands of years old, what is it about them that makes them want to keep living? What is it about the world around them that they find joy in?” he said. Gemma Chan, who plays Sersi, added, “I was excited about playing this character where I haven’t really seen a superhero like her before. She’s a free spirit. She’s not your typical warrior-fighter kind of superhero. And I was interested in this mix of characters as well, them coming together and [figuring out] what they’re like as a slightly dysfunctional family.”
