“[It’s] just a really a love letter to Earth and very character-based, but also very, very big and we’re going to expand a long period of time and try different things. I love the storytelling, and I happen to love Thena. She’s very aggressive and I like her and I’m ready for that now.”
D23 attendees got their first look at the concept art for the Eternals’ character designs and costumes. Introducing The Eternals on the D23 Expo stage, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige said, “We have assembled a giant cast, this story spans thousands of years. We’ve pulled back the curtain on the cosmic universe.”
The Eternals announced several new cast members at D23 Expo, including Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, a character who later becomes Black Knight; Gemma Chan as Sersei; and Barry Keoghan as Druig. They join announced cast members Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Angelina Jolie as Thena, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Don Lee as Gilgamesh and Lia McHugh as Sprite.
