One of the diversification and representation characters in the later release of Marvel’s Eternals is none other than Makkari who plays the first deaf superhero in the MCU and with her presence in the film, sign language is one of the most important aspects of her character as such is the way her character communicates. Played by Lauren Ridloff, she introduced each member in such manner in a recent featurette.
In sign language, Lauren Ridloff introduced each member of the Eternals while the other cast members try to imitate how to introduce themselves in sign language. Lauren started with Salma Hayek’s Ajak who she describes as the leader, Gemma Chan’s Sersi, the selfless beauty, Brian Tyree Henry’s Phastos as an innovator, and Lia McHugh’s Sprite as the youthful one which fits as her character is stuck as a child.
Ridloff continued with Richard Madden’s Ikaris as the powerful Eternal, Angelina Jolie’s Thena who is perfectly described as fierce, Barry Keoghan’s Druig as the independent Eternal having his own place in the woods, Don Lee’s Gilgamesh is definitely strong with his power punches, Kumail Nanjiani’s Kingo as the influential one because he’s the movie star, and lastly, herself, Makkari, as the one who is daring.
The Eternals are as follows: Ikaris (Richard Madden) is the Prime Eternal, leader of the team; Thena (Angelina Jolie), squaring off as the other leader of the group; Ajak (Salma Hayek), a Trojan War veteran; Gilgamesh (Don Lee/ Dong-seok Ma), also known as the Forgotten One; and Sersi (Gemma Chan), an enchantress and conjurer.
Other members of the Eternals are Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), the deaf speedster; Sprite (Lia McHugh), an Eternal trapped in the body of an 11-year-old; Kingo Sunen (Kumail Nanjiani), the skilled swordsman; Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), the blacksmith; and Druig (Barry Keoghan), an ominous Eternal.
Marvel’s Eternals premieres on November 5, 2021, exclusively in theaters.
