One of the largest franchises in existence, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been in the industry for more than a decade and with its popularity, all those falling under it is immediately a hit. However, it is not the same for its latest release, the Eternals as it is the lowest rated on Rotten Tomatoes, even lower than that of Thor: The Dark World.
Currently, the Eternals holds the lowest Rotten Tomatoes score for a Marvel movie and while it is relatively higher than other films released this year, it is the lowest under the MCU, beating Thor: The Dark World with one percent as Eternals currently sits with a 65% rating, with one percent lower.
While reviews are mixed with the latest release of Marvel on the age-old band of superheroes, it is expected that the success of the movie will not be reliant on the Rotten Tomatoes score it has received. After all, it is not so bad a rating after all as compared to other movies like that of Venom which currently has 30%.
These numbers do not make Zhao or any other person involved in the film worried because in the end, they told the real story of the Eternals to the best that they can.
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.
