Marvel Studios has done a great job at hyping up ETERNALS for it’s November 5th release date, and the trailer broke the internet upon release. It doesn’t hurt that it’s director, Chloé Zhao, just won the Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director for Nomadland. From what little we know, we can safely assume that the Deviants are going to be the antagonists to the Eternals. Or will they?
We are proud to report that this will not be the case and a new antagonist will rise. Before you continue reading forward, note there are HUGE spoilers coming your way. You have been warned.
According to our sources, who have given us substantial evidence they have seen the film, which goes along with Zhao saying the film was in it’s final stretch of post production, claim that Richard Madden’s character, Ikarius, is the antagonist. Read what our source had to say below.
The big twist is that Ikaris (Richard Madden) is a traitor. Sersi (Gemma Chan) learns that Ikaris knew about the Celestials’ actual plans and this is why he left the group hundreds of years ago. He killed Ajak (Salma Hayek) because she had decided to help stop the emergence and save Earth.
If this is indeed true, then this will lead to a large conflict within the Eternals. We will find out soon enough when Eternals hits theatres November 5th, 2021.
