CINEMA , Cinecomic , Trailer & Video

The Marvel Studios will always keep reminding us that their films all belong to the same fictional universe, and the characters never fail to mention the other heroes marvelliani dialogues.

At the end of the new commercial, we hear Dane Whitman ( Kit Harington ) ask Sersi ( Gemma Chan ) if she is “a sorcerer, like Doctor Strange” , but the heroine claims to be “supernormal” . Too bad that, in the next shot, we see her transform a fiery boulder into dozens of birds flying away!

There is also the scene where Phastos’ son ( Brian Tyree Henry ) compares Ikaris ( Richard Madden ) to Superman . The filmmaker Chloé Zhao has recently explained that references to Superman born from his archetypal figure, the basis of many mythologies.

I remind you that Eternals will be released on November 3 in Italian cinemas, and will be screened tomorrow at the Rome Film Fest as the closing film. You can see the spot below.
