Eternals

I legit do not understand where the hate for this film is coming from. There’s been lots of complaints about how the MCU never deviates from formula but this one does deviate from the formula, and it got rewarded with a 47% RT score? What?

I’m so glad I avoided most of the promo material for this movie because I had no idea what to expect, and it turns out it was telling a very different story to the one I assumed it would be telling. And one that tied into the MCU better than I assumed it would as well. Oh and it also presents a wonderful heroine in Sersi, someone who’s defined by her compassion rather than snark or strength, and also characters the MCU has rather shamefully never presented before, a gay superhero (who actually gets to kiss his husband on screen) and a deaf superhero.

There are some moments in the film that stretch the credibility of the MCU as a connected universe (why are no other superheroes present when the earth starts exploding, has no-one else really ever encountered a Deviant if they can just emerge from ice sometimes?) and a few bits of wince-worthy dialogue, but on the whole it’s really good.


FORTY-SEVEN PERCENT?!?

Some really great MCU fan posters I’ve seen recently

I LOVE this one (THE SPIDER EYES!) Better than any of the official ones in my opinion
Frickin’ love that logo
This is a wonderful concept
I don’t think Marvel Studios will actually ever do World War Hulk but this poster is great
There isn’t an official Eternals poster yet is there? Please use this one
This is WONDERFUL (WANDA-FUL) my gosh I love it

Marvel’s first openly gay superhero has finally been revealed in new trailer for The Eternals

After leaving fans guessing for months, the first openly gay Marvel superhero has been revealed in the trailer for The Eternals. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that there would be an openly gay superhero at the D23 Expo in California in August, but did not confirm the name of the character or the actor…

Okay, I had no idea about this. Honestly, Gemma Chan aside, I don’t really have much interest in The Eternals. But hey, well done MCU! It only took you, what, over a decade…
