Eternals Leak Reveals Gemma Chan's Sersi Playing Important Role in War Against Deviants

It looks like the delay of Eternals has led to several leaks about the highly anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe flick. For instance, the character descriptions of the Eternals have been revealed and it somehow reveals that Gemma Chan's Sersi will play an important role in the fight against the Deviants.

The character descriptions were revealed by Redwolf, a clothing company in India that has been producing the film's tie-in merchandise. In the description for Sersi, it is confirmed that she has romantic feelings for Richard Madden's Ikaris, which explains why she is ready to do anything for him.

"Sersi is the Eternal with an affinity for humanity. Sersi is as happy working as a museum curator as she is saving humans from the threat of the Deviants. Sersi has the ability to manipulate matter, changing the makeup of any non-sentient material she touches. She's also been in love with Ikaris for centuries, and helps him to recruit the Eternals for one last mission," the description reads.

This is an interesting detail considering that Sersi's love interest in the comic books is a completely different character. In the comics, she is romantically involved with Dane Whitman aka Black Knight, who will be played by Kit Harington in Eternals. Will the film change Sersi's comic book storyline or should we expect a love triangle next year? We'll find out for sure in 2021.

Eternals will also star Richard Madden as Ikaris, Angelina Jolie as Thena, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Barry Keoghan as Druig, and Don Lee as Gilgamesh. The movie is currently scheduled for release on November 5, 2021.
