Marvel's Eternals has some new merchandise that gives us a better look at two of the characters from the upcoming film: Sersi and Ikaris. Sersi is played by Gemma Chan, who Marvel fans already know as Kree sniper Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel; Ikaris will be played by Richard Madden, of Game of Thrones fame. We get a better look at both Sersi and Ikaris in full armored costumes, thanks to some new prints for Marvel's Eternals t-shirt line. Check out the images below which also highlight the color-themed look for each character, in what is, overall, that colorful rainbow that is the Eternals cast.
Sersi is a pivotal character in both the Eternals & Avengers worlds of Marvel Comics, being one of the most prominent Eternals in modern superhero society. Ikaris is another pivotal figure in the Eternals, having inspired several big biblical and Greek myths, including the tragic story of his half-human son, Icarus. Both are highly-anticipated characters for the MCU.
Eternals will see the Marvel Cinematic Universe reveal a new race of immortal aliens created by the Celestials, who have played pivotal roles throughout history for over 7,000 years. The Eternals movie will see the estranged race of Earth's Eternals reunite again, to confront their old foes the Deviants, another superpowered race created by The Celestials that have warred with The Eternals for centuries.
Merchandise from Eternals is leaking onto the Internet pretty regularly now, as the movie gears up for its promotional campaign in 2021. Toy packaging has leaked costume and character details, including the full regal splendor of Salma Hayek's Ajak.
