Delayed to November 5, 2021, Eternals is planning to be one of Marvel Studios' biggest epics yet with Chloé Zhao, who could become the first Asian woman nominated for Best Director at the Oscars. Now, as fans wait until the movie releases in theaters, as it was meant to this month, there has been a constant stream of leaks showing the characters in costume.
Fans have gotten a better look at the villain Kro and Ajak through toys, Barry Keoghan's Druig and Salma Hayek's Ajak through a stylized illustration, and even all the Eternals together, albeit in only gold and green. However, a new leak shows the pantheon in glorious color.
A new leak from @maxdalorian on Twitter shows the entire Eternals pantheon. From left to right: Kingo, Sprite, Gilgamesh, Thena, Sersi, Ikaris, Phastos, Makkari, Druig, and Ajak.
The description that accompanies them is the same one found in previous leaks that roughly translates to:
Here are the Eternals.
The Eternals are an extraterrestrial, immortal species that come from a faraway planet and who arrived on Earth thousands of years ago. These superheroes have protected humanity since the dawn of time.
WHAT THIS MEANS
The most significant differences in the costume designs compared to when they were first revealed at D23 in 2019 are shown with Phastos, Ajak, and Makkari. Phastos is the most blatant due to his costume's primary color being changed from red to blue, now almost identical to Ikaris' costume. In fact, Ajak's colors' were changed similarly, from green to blue.
Perhaps Phastos, Ajak, and Ikaris are going to be of similar rank or power; thus, why they have similar costumes and don the same colors. It is odd how all three of them are sporting yellow and blue colors. However, looking closer, Phastos and Ajak do seem to have red colors on their boots. Sersi and Phastos cover Irakis' feet in the image, but it's likely that his design also sports this color.
As for Makkari, it seems that her white highlights from her concept art have been changed to black instead. Nothing significant there, but it shows that the designs shown at D23 were very early iterations of the costumes that could have been tweaked before production began or was adjusted in post-production.
