The release of the Highly-anticipated Marvel movie is still some time away and everyone is already excited about what the movie has to offer to MCU's die hard fans. While speaking with Movieweb, the actor stated he is a huge fan of Marvel Cinematic Universe and is excited about watching the final cut.
“I’m a big fan of the MCU. So when they come knocking, it’s very exciting. The character, I won’t go into why he interests me, because it’s more than my life is worth to tell you. But what did interest me about that piece was that it was Chloe Zhao directing. I met her and spoke with her and was so impressed by her. The cast was sort of phenomenal and wide-ranging and diverse,” said Harington.
Elaborating, the actor said, "It just looked like they were doing something really different with this movie. I can't tell you much about it but we filmed it pre-pandemic. And it's coming out finally, it was sort of frustrating that it got pushed back so much. But now I’ll be going on and doing some press for that soon and it’s really exciting.”
Eternals has a huge cast for a Marvel origin movie. Besides Kit Harington, it stars Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani among others in pivotal parts. Disney also revealed that Eternals won't be following a hybrid release format, and will be only available to watch in theatres. The studio is currently embroiled in legal tussle with Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson who had recently sued Disney for releasing her standalone Marvel Film on OTT platform Disney Plus. The actor claimed that the film’s box office performance suffered a setback as a result of that decision.
Meanwhile, Disney claims that the movie star’s lawsuit holds no merit and released a statement stating, “The lawsuit is especially sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Eternals will release in theatres this November.
