We are only a few weeks away to watch the third MCU film, Eternals. Directed by Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao, the film stars Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Gemma Chan, Don Lee, and Kit Harington.
A few days ago, Marvel unveiled the final Eternals trailer. Since then, fans had had one question to these heroes – What were they doing when Thanos made people of Earth suffer in Avengers: Infinity War with the snap and when the Avengers fought the war in Avengers: Endgame? In the trailer, these immortal beings say that they were asked not to interfere in the matters of the humans. Now Zhao also has the same answer to the burning question.
In an interaction with Total Film, Chloé Zhao says, “[The audience] will understand why. Not only why, but how complicated not interfering made them feel. We explore that. You’ll see that in the film. The Eternals were instructed not to interfere with any human conflict unless Deviants are involved. There’s a reason why that’s the case. And that was the instruction from the prime Celestial Arishem.”
While working on the film, the director revealed that she was excited to go back in time and explore the time before Thanos or anyone was born. She adds, “Where does the MCU go back in time? And that brings us to the mythology of the Celestials. Anything involving the Celestials is going to be at a huge scale level of complication, let’s put it that way.”
