A number of the solely dialogue within the “Eternals” trailer comes courtesy of Salma Hayek’s Ajak, who explains the final historical past of the titular group’s relationship with Earth via voice-over narration. The character reveals that the Eternals have watched humanity via its varied developments, however have by no means interfered in any of its conflicts. Whereas “Eternals” will see the immortal workforce breaking that sample in response to the emergence of a villainous species often known as the Deviants, Marvel followers had been fast to take concern with the Eternals’ choice to apparently stay on the sidelines through the occasions of “Avengers: Infinity Warfare” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
On Twitter, @ShalyahEvans tweeted, “Okay however to be clear the Eternals did not really feel like serving to with Thanos,” and @goldloki in contrast the Eternals’ absence through the “Infinity Warfare” battle to Regina George (Rachel McAdams) in “Imply Women” simply standing by whereas chaos reigns in a highschool hallway. Consumer @Hello_Tailor additionally famous the awkwardness of the trailer’s voice over narration, tweeting, “feeling actual sympathy for the Eternals writers who needed to dream up an evidence for why the Eternals ignored millennia of genocide, warfare & pure disasters, however determine to begin “serving to humanity” like 2 years *after* Thanos killed off half the inhabitants.”
Most of the hottest YouTube feedback on the “Eternals” trailer are equally derisive of the group’s choice to simply sit out and watch earlier MCU conflicts unfold. Ofentse Mwase Movies posted, “So an entire Thanos wiping out Half of Earths Inhabitants did not wake these guys up..?,” whereas a consumer named Kevin B wrote “Think about them simply hovering over earth watching the ultimate battle with thanos…. so merciless.”
It is laborious to dispute any of those factors, and that is arguably an issue that Marvel will proceed to have to deal with each time that it introduces viewers to highly effective characters who could have been round through the occasions of earlier MCU movies. It is also totally attainable that “Eternals” will present a logical clarification for the group’s absence over the last two “Avengers” movies. Solely time will inform.
