New The Eternals set photos reveal first look at Gemma Chan’s Sersi
As production continues for The Eternals, new behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Marvel Studios’ highly-anticipated film have surfaced online through Twitter (via Comic Book Movie), offering us our first look at Gemma Chan’s Sersi in the present day. Also featuring a glimpse of the film’s incredible sets which are most likely inspired by Jack Kirby’s Tomb of the Space Gods, you can check out the photos below.
The Eternals is based upon Jack Kirby’s comic of the same name. That series introduced a group of immortals called the Eternals and their rivals, the Deviants. Within the comics, Thanos and the other inhabitants of Titan were also Eternals. It’s unclear if the MCU will maintain that connection.
The film will feature a star-studded cast led by Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie and Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden, who are headlining as Thena and Ikaris, respectively. It will also as star Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff (The Walking Dead) as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) as Phastos, Salma Hayek (Frida) as Ajak, Lia McHugh (The Lodge) as Sprite, Don Lee (Train to Busan) as Gilgamesh, Gemma Chan as Sersi, Barry Keoghan as Druig and Kit Harrington as Dane Whitman/ Black Knight.
Chloe Zhao is directing Eternals from a script by Matthew K. Firpo and Ryan Firpo. It will hit theaters on November 6, 2020.
