Marvel's Eternals Leak Provides Best Look Yet at Richard Madden's MCU Hero, Ikaris

Richard Madden, Ikaris

Marvel's Eternals is one of the most highly anticipated movies from Marvel Studios with director Chloé Zhao behind the helm. Even veteran MCU director James Gunn is excited about the movie. Nia DaCosta, director of the upcoming Captain Marvel 2, also expressed her excitement at Zhao working on Eternals.

Despite being delayed to November 5, 2021, there have been more and more leaks from Eternals, mostly from merchandise, such as a better look at the villain Kro and Salma Hayek's Ajak. Now, after a new leak showed the entire pantheon of Eternals' stylized art style for posters and shirts, another has been leaked, giving fans a far better look at Richard Madden's Eternal and his costume.

Another leak from Eternals, courtesy of @ETERNALSnews on Twitter, shows a better look at Richard Madden's Ikaris in costume.



WHAT THIS MEANS

Ikaris' costume from this leak only differs slightly from the concept art shown during the Walt Disney Studios panel at D23 Expo 2019. The only significant difference between them is that the blue's saturation on the costume isn't nearly as high as the concept art, but the lighting could cause that difference in both pictures.

It is surprising that the costume still lacks any red, which has been part of the color scheme for Ikaris for all of his designs over the years in the comics. While blue has always been the dominating color with yellow highlights, red was typically more prominent. This change was likely made so that each character has their own colors, and therefore doesn't cross-pollinate with any of the other Eternals when they're all together in a shot.
