‘Eternals’: Kit Harington Name-Drops Doctor Strange In Brand New TV Spot

Does Sersi know Doctor Strange?

A brand new Eternals TV spot features Kit Harington’s character referencing Doctor Strange.

Marvel Studios’ Eternals is almost upon us! The upcoming sci-fi epic directed by Chloe Zhao puts the focus on the titular cosmic beings who arrived on Earth 7,000 years ago to protect us from the pesky Deviants, their counterparts. Since then, the ragtag group of superpowered immortals fractured away and began their own separate lives throughout the world.

One of the characters we have the most questions about is Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman. From what we’ve seen in the trailers, Whitman looks to be a typical human being without any sort of superpowers like his girlfriend, Sersi. And he’s hot questions. While the Eternals may have kept their identities a secret for several years, recent decades have shown an abundance of heroes popping out of nowhere.

In a brand new TV spot, Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman is seen asking Sersi, played by Gemma Chan, if she’s a “wizard like Doctor Strange” after witnessing her showing off her superpowers. She replies that she’s “perfectly normal”, which is far from the truth.

It’s not surprising that Dane Whitman knows who Doctor Strange is considering he’s one of the most popular heroes. Besides that, Doctor Strange and the Avengers were responsible for fending off Thanos’ second attack on Earth, so Whitman and the Eternals do have something to thank for him.

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 theaters on November 5, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming film and Doctor Strange. You can also subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
