As with many of the MCU films, Eternals also features a star-studded cast as our newest heroes. We’re talking Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kit Harington, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, and Don Lee, among others. And that’s not all of the stars in the film, might we add!

The MCU movies have always been loved and praised by millions around the world–and part of the reason why is because its directors do a good job at giving the comic books justice. So you better expect a great film because Eternals is directed by none other than Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao. The Chinese-born filmmaker was behind the camera for the award winning 2020 film, Nomadland. (Read: LOOK: People of Color Win Big at the 93rd Academy Awards!)

Many scenes were filmed on location

Marvel gave Chloé Zhao a significant amount of creative freedom in directing the movie. As a result, there is a higher number of scenes shot on location for Eternals compared to other MCU films. This will likely provide a more “authentic” feel as it has less CGI scenes!
