“It’s shot with a massive scope, looking visually different (and more intimate) than anything else Marvel,” one tweeted, applauding Chloé Zhao’s direction. “It has laughs, great surprises, and heart to go with the gigantic, crowded story it unpacks.”
“Eternals was not what I expected at all, but in the best way!” another wrote. “It went where no MCU film has gone before. The best way I could describe it is an epic fantasy [à la] Ben-Hur.”
“Eternals is the most un-MCU film to date — so much so that it feels like a different franchise!” another critic said. “Very interested to see how Marvel fans react to that…”
Eternals is due to be released November 5.
