Ahead of Eternals, here’s a complete character guide for MCU’s new superheroes


With Eternals, the Marvel Cinematic Universe becomes completely cosmic. Director Chloe Zhao introduces a new group of superheroes that predate the Avengers by seven millennia. They were created by the Celestials, an ancient race of entities older than even the Asgardians we saw in the Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy series (Ego, the living planet is a celestial).

The Eternals were tasked with protecting the earth from the deviants, their monstrous and misshapen counterparts who were also created by the Celestials.

Zhao, who won two Oscars for his film Nomadland, wrote the screenplay with Patrick Burleigh, Ryan Firpo and Kaz Firpo.

To help you get started with superheroes, here’s a handy character guide before you watch the movie:

1. Sersi (Gemma Chan)

Eternal who loves humans, Sersi lives in London and works at the Natural History Museum (hence the British accent). She has the power to manipulate inanimate matter and maybe you get a glimpse of her abilities in trailers and promos. She has been in a relationship with Ikaris (for more information, see the next point) for centuries. She is currently posing as a museum curator and dating Dane Whitman (Kit Harington).

2. Ikaris (Richard Madden)

A strong, serious Eternal, focused on the mission and endowed with great strength. Basically, he’s the MCU’s Superman, as the movie also acknowledges. He is invulnerable, shoots laser beams through his eyes, mainly wears a blue suit, and flies.

3. Ajak (Salma Hayek)

The matriarch of the Eternals, she is the bridge between the Eternals and the Celestials. She has healing abilities.

4. Thena (Angelina Jolie)

Some might call her the MCU’s Wonder Woman. She is an elite warrior and adept at a variety of weapons that she can craft with cosmic energy like sword and spears.

5. Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani)

Eternal extrovert who loves fame, Kingo lives in secret as a Bollywood star, although his valet (played by Harish Patel) knows his secret. He can draw cosmic energy through his hands.

6. Makkari (Lauren Ridloff)

The fastest woman in the world, the last MCU speedster (after the late Quicksilver), Makkari uses her speed to fight enemies and save people. One of the trailers shows us how to get a human out of harm’s way when the Deviants attack.

7. Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry)

Phastos is a master inventor and technology expert. On top of all that, he’s also the MCU’s first full-fledged gay superhero.

8. Gilgamesh (Don Lee)

The eternal strongest, physically speaking, Gilgamesh is perhaps the MCU’s take on the epic hero Gilgamesh.

9. Druig (Barry Keoghan)

Druig has the power to manipulate the minds of others. For example, it can make anyone forget that they’ve seen it before, or remember something that never happened.

10. Leprechaun (Lia McHugh)

Sprite can project realistic illusions to deceive others. Although she is thousands of years old like her fellow Eternals, her appearance is that of a 12 year old girl.

11. Dane Whitman (Kit Harington)

The only human in the main cast, Dane Whitman is Sersi’s boyfriend and works with her at the Natural History Museum. In the comics, Dane ultimately takes on the role of Black Knight, a descendant of Sir Percy of Scandia, the literary dark knight who dates back to Arthurian England. Like his medieval counterpart, he also rides a horse (called an Aragorn!) And wields a sword.
