Eternals and Game of Thrones star Richard Madden has called the filming for the upcoming Marvel film physically draining.
Originally set to be released in November of 2020, Marvel’s Eternals was one of many Marvel Cinematic Universe projects that was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Early on the trailers were rather vague about what the film would be about with only the final trailer telling us what the plot would be. But apparently, the filming process was not a picnic for some of the actors either.
In a recent interview with Wonderland Magazine, Eternals star Richard Madden opened up about the filming process for the movie. Specifically, he called his time on set physically exhausting due to the amount of time he was on wires for the film:
“There was a lot of time on wires because my character flies, which was just physically f**king draining”
Jack Kirby created the title in 1976. In the comics, the Eternals are a fictional evolutionary offshoot of humanity who possess superpowers and longer lifespans than normal humans. Created by the Celestials over a million years ago, the superpowered beings were the result of genetic experiments that led to the creation of two divergent races: The Eternals and The Deviants.
Often defending Earth from their monstrous counterparts, the Eternals became embroiled in a civil war amongst themselves over whether or not they should conquer the other races. One faction was led by Kronos and the other by his warlike brother named Uranos, with Kronos’ side ultimately winning the conflict while Uranos and his followers were exiled.
Chloé Zhao is directing Eternals from a script written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. The cast of the Marvel Studios project includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Angelina Jolie as Thena, and Barry Keoghan as Druig.
Eternals is set to hit theaters on November 5, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
