The actress plays Thena in the Marvel film directed by Chloe Zhao. The film hits theaters on November 5.
Eternals, a delivery of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, comes to theaters on November 5. The film has the winner of the Oscar for Best Director for Nomadland Chloe Zhao and, although the studio has not yet released the trailer for the title, it has shown the first images of the film through a video about the cinematographic deliveries of this new stage of the franchise. One of the moments that has most attracted the attention of fans is the one that stars Angelina Jolie. The actress plays Thena in Eternalsand the strange sword that he carries in the preview has been much commented on. What is this peculiar contraption?
In the Marvel comics, Thena does not use a sword like the one featured in the preview, but her appearance could be connected to the character’s powers. In the comics, the Eternal usually uses a golden spear. However, in the most recent pages of the comics, as Screen Rant indicates, Thena – and the rest of the Eternals – is able to transform cosmic energy into swords that she can use in combat. This would explain the appearance of this weapon in Eternals.
The Eternals are a race of superhumans created by the Celestials to protect Earth. In the comics, these characters are able to use the cosmic energy that flows through their veins in different ways. Sersi, played by Gemma Chan in the film, can manipulate matter on a grand scale. On the other hand, Makkari, who is played by Lauren Ridloff, is capable of moving at high speed. We will have to wait to see more material from Eternals, but considering how peculiar the sword of Thena is, a weapon that looks like glass and with golden sparkles, the character could use cosmic energy to create this contraption.
One sword that will also play a key role in Eternals is that of Dane Whitman/Black Knight. Kit Harington plays this character, who possesses the mythical Ebon Sword. This weapon is expected to appear in the film, but neither is it the one carried by Thena in the preview nor has Marvel Studios wanted to reveal the first look at Harington as the character for now.
Eternals stars Richard Madden as Ikaris, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Dong-Seok Ma as Gilgamesh, Brian Tyree Henry as Phaistos, Lia McHugh as Sprite, and Barry Keoghan as Drug. On these lines, do not miss the preview of the film that Marvel Studios has released and the rest of the installments of Phase 4 of the franchise.
