Marvel's Eternals is directed by Academy Award winner Chloe Zhao, with a script written by Zhao, Patrick Burleigh, Ryan Firpo, and Kaz Firpo.
"A couple of things we learned when we met [Zhao], one, she grew up reading Manga. She grew up in Beijing, China, so sort of comic book storytelling is kind of in her blood. Two, she's a huge MCU fan. She's seen our movies countless times. She loves them. She loves Captain America, especially, and she sort of blew us away with her infectious energy," Marvel producer Nate Moore explained during a visit to the film's set. "She also comes out the Sundance Lab and it was actually the same year as Ryan Coogler, who directed Black Panther, and they approached storytelling in a very similar way. They're different filmmakers in a lot of other respects, but again, in talking to her early on, we realized this was a true storyteller, a writer, director who did have a very on vision of what the movie could be. And it's been proven true. Look, she's been writing on the script every day. She's great with actors. She sort of pushed us, I think, as a filmmaker to make Eternals feel aesthetically different than any other Marvel movie."
