The third MCU movie release this year may have had its villains leaked ahead of any promotional releases from Disney.
Marvel's 'Eternals' villains may have been revealed in an accidental leak. With the movie still sticking to its November release date (we hope), Marvel's newest superhero team will see the characters debut against some pretty epic supervillains if these leaks are indeed true.
According to Tech Radar, US retailer Kohls featured some upcoming 'Eternals' clothing merchandise on their website this week. However, it seems that more was uploaded to the online retailer than was supposed to be, and two t-shirts featuring the villains was seemingly published onto their website.
The t-shirts, which have since been taken down from the website, feature Kro the Deviant and Arishem the Judge, who is a Celestial. The Deviants had always been expected play a part in the movie, but now we have confirmation that Kro could be a definite inclusion. In the comics, he is a Deviant warlord who has a relationship with Thena, who will be played by Angelina Jolie in this adaptation. Before he was obliterated, Thanos was also considered a Deviant.
The Celestial known as Arishem is one of the most powerful adversaries for the Eternals, with the ability to destroy entire civilisations. Could Arishem be on the brink of destroying a race which are close to the Eternals? Hmmm... Earth? Potentially.
Marvel sleuths managed to get some screenshots of the marchandise before they were removed.
Chloé Zhao is directing 'Eternals', which stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Kit Harrington, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani and Irish actor Barry Keoghan. Expect more details, and some potential post-credits scenes of the superhero team in the two other upcoming MCU movies this year, 'Black Widow' and 'Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings'.
Marvel's 'Eternals' is scheduled for release in cinemas on November 5, 2021.
