Director Chloe Zhao took to social media to address the Rotten Tomatoes score of Eternals.

Marvel Studios is known for scoring pretty consistently on Rotten Tomatoes. However, Chloe Zhao’s Eternals became their lowest-rated to date and first to be considered “rotten” with 47%. The Marvel film still has its fair share of defenders opposite those who believe it ranks at the bottom of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In a recent Instagram post, Rotten Tomatoes is looking back on their Eternals score and whether or not it was deserved. Their post led to Eternals director Chloe Zhao sharing the post herself with the following caption:

“Does it..? Join the fun debate or if you are not sure, check it out on Disney+ on January 12 with directors commentary and many features.”

Here is the synopsis for Chloe Zhao’s Eternals:

The story takes place across two time periods. One storyline is set in the past when they operated as a formidable team and a close family unit. The second storyline is in the present, when the group has fractured and split apart, content to live among humans, hiding in plain sight. The prevailing threat of the Deviants, which once again threatens the existence of mankind, means the Eternals need to put their differences aside and regroup.

Chloe Zhao directed Eternals from a script she co-wrote with Patrick Burleigh, Kaz Firpo, and Ryan Firpo. The cast of the Marvel Studios project includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.

Eternals will hit Disney Plus on January 12 and home media formats on February 15. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of the film’s characters, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
