Angelina Jolie looks larger than life as Thena in behind the scenes photos from ‘The Eternals’
As Angelina Jolie joined the team at The Eternals, her kids were more than excited about it. To see one’s supermom become a superhero can take any kid on a trip to cloud nine. We wonder if her kids have seen her dressed up for the colossal role that she is going to play in the Marvel movie. Well, if not, they would probably be more than ecstatic to see their mother’s behind the scenes pictures as a Marvel superhero.

The wholesome MCU
Ever since the announcement of Phase 4 of the MCU, we have seen that women have taken center stage. There are more superhero women on screen than there ever were. With women in the spotlight, the storylines of MCU have branched out to endless possibilities. They are now aspiring to inspire future generations and leading by example. It would be a celebration of (super) humanity when we would have choices between an Iron Man, Wonder Woman, Black Widow, and Dr. Strange.
The Eternals will be the multi-starrer Marvel project for Phase 4 of MCU. And Angelina Jolie’s role in The Eternals is that of ‘Thena’ who is a member of an immortal race. Thena is, in fact, very attached to the mortal world and is moved to protect humanity from their evil counterparts the Deviants.
Wait, who are the Deviants? Just like most of the superheroes, genetic experiments led to the creation of two divergent races (millions of years ago). The Eternals and The Deviants. So, basically both these races are offshoots of humanity but are packed with superpowers. Also, as the name suggests, these beings are ‘eternal’ i.e. they have much longer life spans than that of human beings.
The images of Angelina Jolie from The Eternals’ behind-the-scenes depict her scattering someone’s ashes. While these pictures do not give us much information about what we can expect in the upcoming movie, it is undoubtedly a good appetizer that kicks in hunger for what’s to come.
Angelina Jolie looks like a true superhero with her makeover
Our best bet is that Thena has lost a mortal in this scene. Given the fact that her character loves humans and easily falls in love with human men, the ashes could be of a lover (or a husband) that Angelina Jolie would lose in The Eternals.
When her role was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con, she said, “I’m so excited to be here! I think what it means to be a part of the MCU, what it means to be an Eternal, what it means to be in this family. We’ve all read the script and we know what the task is and so we are going to work very, very hard.”
GOT it right
Even though Thena’s character is seen in civilian clothes in the leaked pictures from the set, her portrayal of the character is larger than life. It would be a good treat for the fans’ souls if more of such pictures come out. One that everyone is hyped about is that of Kit Harrington. (Here’s hoping his look does not deviate too much from Jon Snow). His character is speculated to be a way to bring in X Men to the ever-growing world of MCU.
While Salma Hayek did give us a BTS picture with Kit, sadly it was not of their characters.
Who knows, maybe we all will get to see Kit Harrington as Black Knight sooner than we were expecting! After Angelina Jolie, which Eternals character are you craving to see? Share with us.
