New promotional art from Marvel Studios’ Eternals puts Barry Keoghan and Salma Hayek’s characters in the spotlight.
It’s fair to say that Marvel’s Eternals has quickly become one of the most fascinating projects in the pipeline thanks to the mystery surrounding the group as well as the incredible ensemble cast the studio has assembled. With stars like Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Barry Keoghan onboard, there’s a lot of hype surrounding Eternals. The dense mythology and backstory that goes hand-in-hand with the millennia-old race of beings leans heavily into the wider Marvel universe. So translating that from the comics to the screen in a way that both honors their story as well as being understandable for general audiences could be something of a challenge. Although, Marvel has managed fine this far with characters like Doctor Strange, Thanos and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
One big question fans have had is what the team’s cosmic outfits will look like in live-action, and thanks to some recent promotional art, we’ve got a good idea of the group’s wardrobe. Most recently we got a glimpse at Richard Madden’s Ikaris leading the team in an artistic poster design. But new promotional art which surfaced on Twitter shows off Barry Keoghan and Salma Hayek’s characters in their vibrant costumes. If this image is anything to go by, Marvel’s Eternals will be a particularly colorful affair. Take a look below.
