This is MCU’s world, and we are just living in it. Marvel Cinematic Universe is now in its 13th year, having released countless films and now venturing into TV series. Like the Apple of the film industry, MCU is the most successful franchise, and their fans will consume whatever they release.
What started with an action film about a spoilt rich brat named Tony Stark, we saw some of the most amazing characters, shots, and moments in cinematic history altogether. Superhero gargantuan like Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Dr. Strange, and many others have graced the screens for us to devour. In 2019, we witness the end of the ‘Infinite Saga.’ With the release of Endgame, a perfect blend of excitement and emotion marked a beautiful farewell to the storyline. Which began way back in 2008 when Tony Stark gets invited to the Avengers initiative program in the post-credit scene of the 1st Iron Man film.
Since then, they finally come face to face with perhaps the greatest comic book villain ever portrayed on the silver screen, Thanos. The end was gorgeous, it was all concluded spectacularly, but Endgame didn’t mean it was the end for MCU as well. 2 months after Endgame, we saw the release of Spiderman: Far From Home. My personal favorite Spiderman movie ever, giving a perfect amount of tribute to Iron Man along the way introducing new villains and a new future to the MCU.
Post-2019’s Far From Home, MCU did not see any releases in 2020. Which was the first time it happened since 2008, as they have released a movie every year since then. However, in 2021, with the genesis of Disney+, MCU’s streaming service, much like a Netflix or Amazon, we saw Marvel entering the TV series game. So far, we see releases like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Loki going to release in June and many others along the way.
When we talk about feature films, MCU lined up with the Black Widow, Shang-Chi: The Legend of 10 Rings and Eternals as the upcoming films. And Spiderman: No Way Home going to premier at the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022.
Talking about the Eternals, it is safe to say this will be the biggest risk and the most different movie we will see being released by the MCU. Eternals are one of Marvel comic’s most ancient forms of alien races scatter all across the universe. They appeared as humanoids and created by the Celestials, all gods of the Marvel comics. Celestials are the most ancient race in Marvel and can be said the gods of all gods in Marvel mythology.
Coming back to Eternals, the movie going to premier later in 2021. But we are still waiting for an official trailer and even an official look or pictures from the film. As everything has been kept highly under the wraps in a very secretive manner.
Sersi Taking the Lead
However, in a recent interview, MCU’s big boss Kevin Feige all confirmed that Sersi, played by the talented Gemma Chan, would be playing the lead role in Eternals. The cast of Eternals has been a perfect ensemble of talent and diversity, with actors like Anjelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kit Harrington, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Lauren Ridlof all playing a different Eternal.
Its safe to say this movie will be bonkers because it takes place over 7000 years of the world’s entire history. All the team members of Eternals charged with cosmic energy. And we will see what kind of crazy antagonist they face, with Gemma Chan as Sersi leading the line.
Sersi is one of the most ancient beings in MCU’s history. Dated back to being born even before the Mesopotamian empire, and charged with superhuman abilities and a lot of other cool skills. She is highly intelligent and a perfect battle tactician.
