Zhao gets the gig



Source: Marvel Studios' 'The Eternals' Finds Its Director With Chloe Zhao

Back in April Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige  revealed that they were actually discussing making a movie based The Eternals series of comics. The Eternals were the genetic experiments of earthers by the Celestials in the comics, and were the Kirbiest of Jack Kirby creations at Marvel. One might have thought that Feige was having a fever dream, as at the time Avengers: Infinity War was almost ready to launch.

However, we soon learned it wasn't a dream, as a month later writers Matthew and Ryan Firpo were chosen for the project. To solidify things a bit more, it's now being reported that The Eternals has a director: Chloe Zhao. Zhao was born in China and is known for smaller-scale (smaller than a typical Marvel flick) films such as The Rider and My Brothers Taught Me. It was said that Zhao was previously being considered for a Black Widow film.

No official announcement has been made about an Eternals film so no release date is known. The Hollywood Reporter is saying that a part of story for the film will involve the romance between Ikaris and Sersi.

Might work if they don't try to shove them down our throats, like they did with the Inhumans. But they have the sacrificial lamb now, if it bombs.

I know I have said before that I wouldn't be opposed to them making an Eternals movie but with Disney and Marvel supposeddly having a streaming service for several of their lesser properties, I would think that would be a better fit for the Eternals if they want to give them any spotlight.

Well, let's just see how ephemeral the Eternals turns out to be in the face of strong competition like Aquabro, Cybored, and LOSH movies...

So they're going to try to make the most boring Marvel concept ever work by...focusing on an even more boring romantic pairing that, to my (admittedly limited re: Eternals) knowledge, has rarely if ever even been hinted at in the source material. If there's any romantic pairing in the Eternals worth showcasing, it would be the Thena/Kro pairing, though that may be a little too Romeo & Juliet for a Marvel flick...

This.

I just read the entire Kirby run because I found the Omnibus dirt cheap at my local comic shop.

Nowhere in it does Ikaris or Sersi seem to be a thing. Only Thena and Kro seem to have been an item.

I don’t really like any of the characters other than Karkas. Even then he’s just Kirby doing another take on the ugly monster with a beautiful soul.

I'm trying to remember if Sersi had a romantic interest during her Avengers days, while I enjoyed some of that stuff I blocked most of it out

She was part of that forgettable love-triangle involving Black Knight and Crystal

She flirted with Cap largely because it made him uncomfortable, then had a thing with Black Knight.

I like Karkas, and I like Sersi. Every other Eternal, and I mean EVERY SINGLE ONE, is as boring as dry white bread, untoasted.

Listen you can make a pretty decent sandwich with white bread, rice cakes on the other hand

I just hope this doesn't turn out like 'The Inhumans'.
