Marvel released a new clip from the Eternals Cast and reveals the close relationship between Makkari and Druig. Eternals, directed by Chloé Zhao, is currently in cinemas. The film introduces fans to the titular band of immortals, who were brought to Earth thousands of years ago by the Celestials and commanded not to engage in any human matters unless Deviants were involved. Lauren Ridloff, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Don Lee, Barry Keoghan, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Kit Harrington, and Angelina Jolie are the cast of Eternals. watch the new footage below.
Eternals features many close relationships at its center, including Phastos (Henry) and his husband, Gilgamesh (Don Lee) and Thena (Jolie), and Sersi (Gemma Chan) and Ikaris (Madden). The latter relationship—which is complicated by Harrington’s Dane Whitman—is the movie’s main romantic storyline. However, the subtle friendship and possible romance between speedster Makkari (Ridloff) and mind-controlling Druigg (Keoghan) have proven to be the fan-favorite. While Druig is cynical, Makkari is bubbly. Together, the pair’s chemistry proves a pleasant surprise to the audience, the other Eternals, and Zhao, who recognized the chemistry between the two actors during the rehearsal phase and expanded upon it.
With a lot of new characters, Eternals adds a lot to MCU mythology and sets up the future. In either Eternals 2 or another MCU film, Marvel Studios will most certainly rely on Makkari and Druigg’s fame. The MCU may use a new power couple now that Tony Stark and Pepper Potts‘ romance is over, and it’s evident that these two are a huge selling point for moviegoers.
