Marvel Studios' Eternals: discover the first spoiler-free reactions to the movie

Marvel Studios movie Eternals arrives in Cineworld on 5th November, and the first Twitter reactions have arrived to get you primed. Nomadland director Chloé Zhao helms this cosmic expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), one that introduces us to a new batch of heroes and their dreaded enemies.

The titular Eternals are powerful beings created by the Celestials. They were sent to Earth to safeguard mankind, but are expressly instructed to only get involved when humanity is threatened by the diabolical Deviants. This explains why the Eternals sat out the chaos wrought by Thanos (Josh Brolin), plus many other natural disasters throughout human history.

Critics have praised the movie, adapted from Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's comic creation, for being a visually stunning, lore-heavy and surprisingly sexy variation on the usual MCU formula. (Yes, apparently, some characters actually get it on in this particular Marvel epic.) Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani and Salma Hayek all feature in an A-list cast that makes a strong bid for diversity and inclusion, and some reviewers say the backstory-heavy narrative draws closer comparison with Marvel's rival, the DC Extended Universe (DCEU).













That's a smattering of the critical responses and you can make your own mind up when Eternals is released in Cineworld cinemas on 5th November.
